Who should not use levocabastine ophthalmic (Livostin)?
Do not use levocabastine ophthalmic if you have a bacterial, viral, or fungal infection in your eye unless you are also receiving proper anti-infective treatment.
Levocabastine ophthalmic is in the FDA pregnancy category C. This means that it is not known whether levocabastine ophthalmic will harm an unborn baby. Do not use this medication without first talking to your doctor if you are pregnant.
Levocabastine passes into breast milk. Its effects on a nursing baby are not known. Do not use levocabastine ophthalmic without first talking to your doctor if you are breast-feeding a baby.
How should I use levocabastine ophthalmic (Livostin)?
Use levocabastine eyedrops exactly as directed by your doctor. If you do not understand these directions, ask your pharmacist, nurse, or doctor to explain them to you.
Wash your hands before using your eyedrops.
To apply the eyedrops:
- Shake the drops gently to be sure the medicine is well mixed. Tilt your head back slightly and pull down on your lower eyelid. Position the dropper above your eye. Look up and away from the dropper. Squeeze out a drop and close your eye. Apply gentle pressure to the inside corner of your eye (near your nose) for about 1 minute to prevent the liquid from draining down your tear duct. If you are using more than one drop in the same eye or drops in both eyes, repeat the process with about 5 minutes between drops.
Do not touch the dropper to any surface, including your eyes or hands. The dropper is sterile. If it becomes contaminated, it could cause an infection in your eye.
Do not use any eyedrop that is discolored or has particles in it.
Store levocabastine ophthalmic at room temperature away from moisture and heat. Keep the bottle properly capped.
