Eyes Home > Zymar Drug Interactions
Because Zymar is an eye drop -- and very little of the medication is expected to reach the bloodstream -- drug interactions are unlikely. There are currently no documented interactions with this product. However, it's possible that certain reactions haven't been discovered yet. That's why it's important to talk with your healthcare provider about your current medications before starting treatment.
Does Zymar Interact With Other Drugs?Zymar® (gatifloxacin) is a prescription antibiotic eye drop approved to treat bacterial conjunctivitis, commonly called "pink eye." This medication does not have any known drug interactions.
Very little Zymar is absorbed into the body after normal use. Thus, because only small amounts of the drug (if any) are found in the blood, Zymar is not likely to react with other medications.
You should not use Zymar at the same time as other topical eye products. If you are using more than one eye drop, separate the doses of these medications by at least five minutes. Talk to your healthcare provider if you have questions about the best way to separate multiple eye medications.
At this time, it seems unlikely that Zymar would interact with other drugs. No interactions have been identified to date, and very little of it is expected to be absorbed into the body after normal use. However, this does not necessarily mean that there really are no drug interactions with Zymar. This medication has not been studied with every possible drug, and there may be interactions that are yet to be discovered.
It is always a good idea to make sure all your healthcare providers have a complete list of your medications. Make sure you tell them about all medicines you take -- including prescription drugs, nonprescription drugs, vitamins, and supplements -- even if you believe they will not react with other medicines.
