Eyes Home > Ocuflox Drug Interactions

There are no known drug interactions with Ocuflox. Since Ocuflox is administered to the eye, very little of the medication is expected to be absorbed into the body, which means the risk of interactions is low. However, it's still important to talk with your healthcare provider about your current medications before starting treatment with this eye drop.

Does Ocuflox Interact With Other Drugs?

Ocuflox® (ofloxacin ophthalmic solution) is an antibiotic eye drop licensed to treat certain infections of the eye, including bacterial conjunctivitis (commonly called "pink eye") and corneal ulcers. This medication is not likely to interact with other drugs.
 
Ocuflox is applied directly into the eye, and very little of the medication is expected to be absorbed into the body. Because only small amounts of the drug are found in the blood after normal use, Ocuflox will likely not react with other medications.
 
Although Ocuflox is not likely to interfere with other medications, you may need to separate its use from that of other eye drops. If you are using more than one eye drop medication, talk to your healthcare provider about the best way to use these medications together.
 

Final Thoughts

At this time, it seems unlikely that Ocuflox would interact with other drugs, as very little of it is expected to be absorbed into the body. However, this does not necessarily mean that there really are no drug interactions with Ocuflox. This medication has not been studied with other products, and there may be interactions that are yet to be discovered.
 
It is a good idea to make sure your healthcare provider has a complete list of all your medications. Tell your healthcare providers about all the medicines you take, including prescription drugs, nonprescription drugs, vitamins, and herbal supplements, even if you believe they will not react with other medicines.
