FDA Approved Drugs and User Comments: AZASITE

User Comments:


For Conjunctivitis, Bacterial “These drops were applied by my ophthalmologist to treat conjunctivitis. Shortly after I got home 15-30 minutes later, my eyelids began to swell up. I called the doctor’s office and was told to come back. By the time I got there my eyelids were so swollen I could barely see to drive. The doctor applied antihistamine drops to counter the allergic reaction. Eventually the swelling was reduced enough that I could drive home.My other doctors later presumed that I was allergic to the antibiotic in Azisite — azithromicin. But I had taken that antibiotic orally several years earlier for infections and had no bad reactions. Another ophthalmologist suggested that one of the other compounds used in the Azisite solution might be allergenic.”
