Can I use regular eye drops if I already use the eye drops maxidex (dexamethasone)?

What eye drop? If by regular eye drop, you mean artificial tears, then yes you can use these lubricating drops at least 5 to 10 minutes after maxidex (dexamethasone) (you do not want to wash maxidex (dexamethasone) out!). If your regular drops are prescription drops or anything beside lubricating drops, you should consult your eye doctor.
