Pred Forte Eye Drop
Can one build up a tolerance to either Alrex (loteprednol) and Pred Forte eye drops over time, decreasing their effectiveness?
Probably not: Alrex (loteprednol) is extremely weak and you would not be likely to notice the difference. Pred Forte has a good deal of anti-inflammatory strength but is a cognate of a natural hormone so you would not lose response. The condition you are treating might get more severe however which you would interpret as the drop losing effectiveness. ...Read more
I was recently diagnosis with uveitis, my dr ordered numerous labs all came back normal, i still have mild symptoms this has been going on for 6 weeks now I am down to once a day pred forte eye drops. Now I have a rash on my cheeks and necks
With : With the onset of this new rash, you should give your doctor a call. It may or may not be related to your uveitis depending on what it looks like and could give clues to the cause of your uveitis. I am glad that your doctor sent testing since uveitis can occasionally be a sign of underlying illness. Even though uveitis can be associated with other illnesses (especially autoimmune disease) it can affect healthy people, too. I've attached a site with some basic information about uveitis. In the meantime, give your doctor a call about your rash. Good luck! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Can i use "Pred Forte" eye drops and "Maxidex" ointment for my red eyes and also having itching in my eyes.
Have you used: these drops before? One needs to use steroids in the eye carefully and under supervision of an eye care provider. Red eyes can come from a number of causes such as allergy, dry eye, inflammation, or infection. I would start with artificial tears or anti-allergy drops first and if they don't help seek eye care for further diagnosis and treatment. Good luck! ...Read more
My 1 eye is more blurred after using drops for eye inflamatin. Is it normal? Eye inflammation cause permanent blurry. I used every hour pred forte.
NO: No, Pred Forte is a steroid and does not cause dilation. You may have other drops that possibly you touched with your hand and then your eye that could cause it to dialte with the smallest amount of contact (not putting a drop in the eye directly). Or the condition you are using the Pred Forte for is causing the eye to appear dilated (or the adjacent eye to be smaller, making the eye other eye). ...Read more
I've had iritis for 2 months, i stopped mydrilate over a week ago and still taking pred forte. My eye is stil dilated, my dr don't kno why (not stuck)
Variable: You have had a moderately lengthy application of a powerful eye dilator. This will wear off depending in part on your biochemisty and also the color of you iris - much slower in lighter colored irises. It would be very rare for the dilation to be permanent so just hang in there. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
