Natacyn (natamycin ophthalmic suspension) is used to treat fungal infections of the eyes. It is an antifungal medication. Common side effects include mild irritation (redness, stinging, or burning).

The preferred initial dosage in fungal keratitis is one drop of Natacyn 5% instilled in the conjunctival sac at hourly or two-hourly intervals. The frequency of application can usually be reduced to one drop 6 to 8 times daily after the first 3 to 4 days. Therapy should generally be continued for 14 to 21 days or until there is resolution of active fungal keratitis. Do not use other eye medications with Natacyn unless your doctor approves. Tell your doctor all medications and supplements you use. During pregnancy, Natacyn ophthalmic should be used only if prescribed. It is unknown if this drug passes into breast milk. Consult your doctor before breastfeeding.
