Comment from: citizen, 65-74 on Treatment for less than 1 month (Patient) Published: September 28

After suffering severe adverse reactions (immediate and delayed) to zymar ophtalmic which had been prescribed by the opthamologist as a pre-cataract surgery prophylactic use, I learned much later through the Federal Drug Administration (FDA) that Zymar was contraindicated for women of my age with specific prior conditions. This gatifloxicin product caused several severe ruptures/tears in my shoulder, QT prolongation abnormalities, which adverse reactions led to 2 years physical therapy, and a surgery. My advice: be extremely cautious about getting all the facts about gatifloxacin before taking it. Advocate for yourself by asking specific questions and getting specific information about contraindications before taking this drug.

This medication was prescribed for an eye infection associated with contact lense use. The pain subsided within 24 hours and complete healing occured within the recommended course of treatment.

Zymar was prescribed to me for post op cataract surgery. After a few doses, I noticed my face to be red and breaking out in welt like hives or blemishes. I contacted my on call doctor who changed my medication to tobramycin which I used with no further problems. I found a reference for this type of allergic reaction on pdrhealth.com, but no where else. I have had no previous allergies to medications.

My Zymar has been great I also had an ulcer of the cornea (caused by contact lenses), and this product cleared it up in just a couple of days. You probably shouldn't use it all the time, but occasionally when I get an eye infection (I have very sensitive eyes) a little drop and the redness clears up. I would definately recommend this to anyone.
