What is the most important information I should know about Neo Poly Dex ophthalmic: Contact your veterinarian if the symptoms begin to get worse or if there is no improvement in the pet's condition after a few days. Do not touch the dropper or tube opening to any surface, including the eyes or hands. The dropper or tube opening is sterile and if it becomes contaminated, it could cause an infection in the eye. Neo Poly Dex ophthalmic is not FDA approved for use in veterinary medicine; however, it is a commonly accepted practice for veterinarians to use this medication in dogs, cats, and horses. Neo Poly Dex is a prescription medication available as sterile drops in a 5 ml bottle and sterile ointment in a 3.5 Gm tube. The drops are usually applied to the eye every 2 to 4 hours. Shake well before applying the drops. The ointment is usually applied to the eye every 8 to 12 hours.

What is Neo Poly Dex ophthalmic: Neo Poly Dex is a combination of neomycin and Polymyxin B, which are antibiotics used to treat bacterial infections, and dexamethasone, a steroid, used to treat swelling associated with bacterial infections of the eye. Neo Poly Dex ophthalmic is used to treat bacterial infections of the eye, but may be also used for purposes other than those listed in this guide.

What should I discuss with my veterinarian before using Neo Poly Dex ophthalmic: Tell your veterinarian if your pet is allergic to this medication or to any of the individual ingredients. Do not use this medication if the pet has a viral or fungal infection in the eye. It is used to treat bacterial infections only. Tell your veterinarian if your pet is pregnant or lactating.

How should this medication be used: Use Neo Poly Dex eye drops or eye ointment exactly as directed by your veterinarian. If you do not understand the directions, ask your pharmacist or veterinarian to explain them to you. Wash your hands before and after using the eye drops or ointment. When using the drops, shake the drops to be sure the medication is mixed well. If using more than 1 drop, wait about 1 minute between drops. If using the ointment, apply a thin film into the lower eyelid. Wait at least 10 minutes before applying any other eye medication. Do not touch the dropper or tube opening to any surface, including the eyes or hands. The dropper or tube opening is sterile and if it becomes contaminated, it could cause an infection in the eye. Store Neo Poly Dex ophthalmic at room temperature away from moisture and heat. Keep the bottle or tube properly capped.

What happens if I miss a dose: Apply the missed dose as soon as you remember. However, if it almost time for the next regularly scheduled dose, skip the missed dose and apply the next one as directed. Do not use a double dose of this medication.

What happens if I overdose the pet: An overdose of this medication is unlikely to occur. If an overdose is suspected, wash the eye with water and call your veterinarian or veterinary emergency room.

What should I avoid while using Neo Poly Dex ophthalmic: Do not touch the dropper or tube opening to any surface, including the eyes or hands. The dropper or tube opening is sterile and if it becomes contaminated, it could cause an infection in the eye. Neo Poly Dex ophthalmic may cause blurred vision. Do not use other eye medications in your pet unless approved by your veterinarian.

What are the possible side effects of Neo Poly Dex ophthalmic: Serious side effects are not expected when using this medication. However, some burning, stinging, irritation, itching, redness, blurred vision, eyelid itching, eyelid swelling, or sensitivity to light may occur. Continue to use the medication and talk to your veterinarian about any side effects that seem unusual or bothersome to your pet.

What other drugs will affect Neo Poly Dex ophthalmic: Avoid other eye medications unless approved by your veterinarian. Tell your veterinarian if your pet is also taking an oral steroid medication such as prednisone. Drugs other than those listed here may also interact with Neo Poly Dex ophthalmic. Talk to your veterinarian and pharmacist before giving any prescription or over the counter medications to your pet.

Where can I get more information: Your pharmacist has additional information written for health professionals that you may read.

 

Call your veterinarian for medical advice about any side effects to your pet. You may report side effects to the FDA at 1-800-FDA-1088.

Worked Quickly! I would recommend the drops every time. You can make sure the right amount of meds is dispensed and directly into the eye where needed. The problem was cleared up in just a few days. 07/09/2014
great eye medication for bulldogs Valentino gets cherry eye in the winter when it is very cold. I use this and his eyes clear up. great product. 01/17/2014
Dolly responds well to NPDO medication Dolly does well with Neo Poly Dex Ophthalmic eye medication. Our Veterinary prescribed this for her. I give her a massage with a hand held battery operated massager. After that, I just pick her up and cradle her like a baby and instill a drop in each eye. She is wonderful about everything. Perhaps it soothes her eye as well as medicates. She is an adult platinum tip Tonkinese cat. 06/18/2013
Great for eye allergies! I purchased this product because my Sheltie had it prescribed previously and it worked for his seasonal eye allergies. The drops are easy to apply and it gets rid of the redness and irritation within days on onset. I'll keep using it and its wonderful to be able topurchase it thru 1-800-PETMEDS!! 11/19/2012
Neo Poly Dex Ophthalmic The mfgs pamplet says NOT to touch the dropper on the dogs eyes (lids or eye ball) or your fingers. It may cause additional problems. Check out Falcon website for additional information. I suggest you shake the bottle with the lid on. :) 10/31/2012

Please refer to the expiration date on the prescription label. The medication does expire once that date has passed. See your veterinarian for a new prescription if the medicine has expired or there is no improvement with your pet.
