Zymar Uses

How Does Zymar Work?

Like other fluoroquinolones, Zymar kills certain bacteria that cause infections. It does this by interfering with bacterial enzymes called DNA gyrase and topoisomerase IV. Bacteria need these enzymes to make DNA, which is essential for the bacteria to multiply.

Can Children Use It?

This product is approved for use in children as young as one year old. It has not been adequately studied in children younger than this.

Can Older Adults Use Zymar?

Yes, older adults are expected to respond to and tolerate this medication as well as younger age groups.

Is It Used for Off-Label Reasons?

On occasion, your healthcare provider may recommend using Zymar for something other than conjunctivitis. This is referred to as an "off-label" use. For example, the medication may sometimes be used off-label to treat bacterial eye infections other than conjunctivitis.
