Tobradex (tobramycin and dexamethasone) Ophthalmic Ointment given for eye rednes,swelling,oozing yellow,drynes-no bacterial infection found in skin scraping-why then give antibiotic?

Culture ?: Tobradex (tobramycin and dexamethasone) is a good treatment for severe redness caused by bacterial conjunctivitis, especially those caused by gram negative bacteria.

Does Maxitrol (dexamethasone neomycin and polymyxin) cause dry eyes, and fatigue? Prescribed for blepharitis caused infection.

Does Maxitrol (dexamethasone neomycin and polymyxin) cause dry eyes, and fatigue? Prescribed for blepharitis caused infection.

Not usually: Maxitrol (dexamethasone neomycin and polymyxin), (dexamethasone neomycin and polymyxin) in the normally prescribed pattern of dosage, can be an effective treatment for eye infection. It can assist with blepharitis but that requires hygiene of the lids more than an antibiotic. There is no chance that Maxitrol (dexamethasone neomycin and polymyxin) will cause eye dryness, unless you develop an allergy to it. Fatigue is almost certainly from another cause. ...Read more
