I have used fml forte (fluorometholone) with great response for a week. How long should I wait if I need to utilize his med again?

In brief: FML FORTE (fluorometholone)

It depends on what is the condition for which it has been prescribed and for how long did the doc adviced you to use it.
The drops can be used again if the condition flares up again but do discuss with yourmd/opthalmologist about its use.

Recommendation is that eye exam be performed if product used for ten or more days due to possibility of elevated intraocular pressure (glaucoma), cataract formation, or development of fungal infection.
See ophthalmologist for exam & further advice.
