Maxitrol Eye Ointment is a medication used to treat certain eye conditions involving inflammation (swelling) and bacterial infections. It contains three active ingredients: dexamethasone, neomycin, and polymyxin B.

The dexamethasone component is a corticosteroid that helps reduce inflammation in the eye. Neomycin and polymyxin B are antibiotics that help treat or prevent bacterial infections in the eye.

Maxitrol Eye Ointment is typically prescribed for short-term use in conditions where both steroid and antibiotic treatment are necessary.

Use and Dosage

This medication is applied to the eye(s), usually 3 or 4 times a day or as directed by your doctor.

Do not wear contact lenses while you are using this medicine. Sterilize contact lenses according to the manufacturer’s directions and check with your doctor before you begin using them again.

To apply the eye ointment, wash your hands first. To avoid contamination, be careful not to touch the tube tip or let it touch your eye or any other surface. Tilt your head back, look upward, and pull down the lower eyelid to make a pouch. Place a 1/2-inch (1.5 centimeters) strip of ointment into the pouch by squeezing the tube gently. Close the eye and roll the eyeball in all directions to spread the medication. Try not to blink and do not rub the eye. Repeat these steps for your other eye if so directed. Wipe the tip of the ointment tube with a clean tissue to remove extra medication before recapping it. Apply as often as directed by your doctor.

If you are using another kind of eye medication (such as drops or ointments), apply the eye drops first and wait at least 5 minutes before applying this eye ointment. Use eye drops before eye ointments to allow the eye drops to enter the eye. If you are using another type of eye ointment, wait at least 10 minutes after using this medication before applying it.

Do not use this medication more often than prescribed or for longer than 10 days unless directed by your doctor.

Use this medication regularly to get the most benefit from it. To help you remember, use it at the same times each day. Continue to use this medication for the full-time prescribed, even if symptoms disappear after a few days. Stopping the medication too soon may allow bacteria to continue to grow, which may result in a return of the infection.
