Moxeza Side Effects
Although most people tolerate Moxeza well, problems can occur. Some of the most common side effects of Moxeza include fever and eye irritation. In most cases, these reactions are minor and are easily treated. However, you should seek medical attention if you develop any signs of an allergic reaction, such as hives, unexplained swelling, or difficulty breathing.
Just like any medicine, Moxeza™ (moxifloxacin eye drops) can cause side effects. However, not everyone who uses the medication will have problems. In fact, most people tolerate it quite well. If side effects do occur, in most cases, they are minor and either require no treatment or are treated easily by you or your healthcare provider.
(This article covers many, but not all, of the possible side effects with Moxeza. Your healthcare provider can discuss a more complete list with you.)
Moxeza has been studied thoroughly in clinical trials in which the potential side effects were carefully documented. In these studies, the most commonly reported Moxeza side effects, occurring in 1 to 2 percent of people, included:
- Eye irritation.
It should be noted that some of these side effects are also symptoms of bacterial conjunctivitis (the condition Moxeza is approved to treat), and it is possible that they are not really reactions to Moxeza at all.
It appears that Moxeza is unlikely to cause serious side effects. However, as with any medication, make sure to contact your healthcare provider if you develop any possible signs of an allergic reaction to the medicine, such as:
- An unexplained rash
- Itching (more than the usual itching related to eye allergies)
- Unexplained swelling, especially of the mouth, lips, or throat
- Difficulty breathing.
