Sofracort is a medication that contains a combination of an antibiotic and a topical anti-inflammatory drug from the cortisone family (corticosteroid).

Sofracort is typically used to treat eye infections with inflammation. The medication consists of framycetin sulphate, gramicidin, and dexamethasone.

Use and Dosage

Ear drops: The usual dose is 2 or 3 drops instilled in the ear canal 3 or 4 times daily. Instill the drops by tilting your head to one side and letting the drops fall into the ear canal from above. Do not touch your ear with the dropper. Alternatively, a saturated gauze wick may be inserted by your doctor into your external ear canal.

Eye drops: The usual dose for acute conditions is 1 or 2 drops every 1 or 2 hours. This dose is generally used for 2 to 3 days. Then the dose is reduced to 1 or 2 drops 3 to 4 times daily.

Before using the eye drops, wash your hands thoroughly. Follow your doctor or pharmacist’s instructions on how to use the eye drops. Do not allow the eye dropper to touch any surface. This could contaminate the dropper and lead to an eye infection. Keep the bottle tightly closed when you are not using it.

Many things can affect the dose of medication that a person needs, such as body weight, other medical conditions, and other medications. If your doctor has recommended a dose different from the ones given here, do not change the way that you are using the medication without consulting your doctor.

This medication must be used for the full duration of treatment, even if you start to feel better. This will reduce the chance of the infection returning and becoming more difficult to get rid of.

It is important to take this medication exactly as prescribed by your doctor. If you miss a dose, administer it as soon as possible and continue with your regular schedule. If it is almost time for your next dose, skip the missed dose and continue with your regular dosing schedule. Do not administer a double dose to make up for a missed one. If you are not sure what to do after missing a dose, contact your doctor or pharmacist for advice.

Store this medication at room temperature. Discard any medication that remains in the dropper bottle 4 weeks after opening it.

Do not dispose of medications in wastewater (e.g. down the sink or in the toilet) or in household garbage. Ask your pharmacist how to dispose of medications that are no longer needed or have expired.
