Common Questions and Answers about Prednisolone acetate

Avatar_m_tn prescribes a continuation of prednisolone acetate 1% eye drops 4x per day, at least up until my 3- week post op appointment. The possible side effects scare me. Can I gradually taper off the frequency of these steroids as long as the eye stays clear and comfortable? I saw some recommendations on-line for lowering frequency in 2nd week to 3x per day and 2x per day in 3rd week.
Avatar_n_tn No. It can be used in any ocular condition which needs control of inflammation. Dr. O.
Avatar_n_tn But this early May, I developed an inflammation in the left eye. I was prescribed prednisolone acetate eye drops and use it for one month. Then on July 10, my left eye inflamed again. I was given prednisolone acetate again. I used one drop four times a day for 2 days, then tapers off to two 3 times a day for several days, then 2 times a day for a week, and now one time a day. The inflammation cleared and my eye returned to normal about four days after I started this medication.
Avatar_m_tn One of the eye drops I was prescribed to take by my eye doctor is Ophthalmic Prednisolone Acetate eye drops. I am to take this quite frequently for 6 weeks. I took it for 6 weeks for my right eye and started taking it about a week ago for my left eye. I am also taking other eye drops. Since taking these I seem to have developed a VERY stuffy nose and currently can essentially not breathe out of it. I did some searching on the internet and found this: http://www.rxlist.
Avatar_n_tn HE HAD BEEN GIVEN DEX MED. NOW TODAY HIS PRESSURE WAS 13 AND SHE GAVE HIM PREDNISOLONE ACETATE OPTH SUSP 1% TO CLEAR INFLAMATION, ETC. THEN SAID I SHOULD GIVE IT FOR LIFE TO PREVENT GLAUCOMA, AND WHENI READ BROCHURE, IT STATED DO NOT GIVE OVER 10 DAYS COULD CAUSE GLAUCOMA OR THINNING OF CORNEA. HELP? WHAT SHOULD I DO?
Avatar_m_tn I am using Prednisolone Acetate in my eyes. Can i have side effects such as nausea, stomach pain or bloating.
Avatar_n_tn You should talk w/ your doctor about this. Instead of stopping the prednisolone acetate drops suddenly after daily use, maybe you could talk w/ your doc. about taking them every other day for a week, then every two days for a week, etc. until you've completely stopped. After prolonged use of any sort of steriod it takes the body a while to readjust, so this maybe the reason for your pain, or you may have developed chronic inflammation, such as uveitis.
Avatar_m_tn I am using predfort(Prednisolone accetate ) for five years ! my eye lids are drooped :( This discussion is related to <a href="/posts/Eye-Care/prednisolone-acetate-eye-drops/show/610393">prednisolone acetate eye drops</a>.
Avatar_n_tn My eye doctor sent me to a cornea specialist and after an exam he asked me to keep taking the acyclovir tablets (1 pill - 3x a day) and prescribed Pred Forte eye drops (Prednisolone Acetate 1%) 4x a day. Reading about this stereoid, I saw that it is not to be used on infections caused by virus (eg. Herpes). What should I do????? Thank you.
Avatar_n_tn I doubt the drops would cause it. Dr. O.
Avatar_m_tn Few years back, when my mom was washing toilet with acid.. she felt some irritation.. suddenly her one of the eye got reddish.. she went for treatment, and after some days, the eye came back to normal. But now, the same got reddish again, after multiple check up with the eye doctor, she prescribed "Prednisolone acetate ophthalmic suspension USP" and she used for a week.. now her eyes are 70% ok.
Avatar_n_tn I remember reading somewhere that some people develop psoriasis, or rheumatoid arthritis as a result of the interferon treatment, but I am not familiar with the eye manifestations. Anyway, I am currently being managed with potent prednisolone acetate eyedrops. I am just hoping this can be easily controlled. The Hep C treatment really is the gift that keeps on giving!!!
Avatar_f_tn Dear Physician: I have been given 6 different drugs over the past 8 months after vitrectomy, cataract surgeries and blepharitis. Allergan Restasis Cyclosporine (0.5%), ToraDex (tobramycin and dexamenthasone), Bausch & Lonb Alrex Ioteprednol etabonate (0.2%), Omnipred (prednisolone acetate (2.0%, Xibrom (bromfenac (0.09% and Bacitracin Ointment (500 units) are the drugs and ointment given to me at various points in these procedures; however, the vitrectomy was last July.
Avatar_m_tn I am using drops prednisolone acetate drop(predmet), zymar, cyclopent, acular ls. Also there is no retina detachment. I still find haziness in day light. I am 36years old and after the surgery my vision is almost 6/12.
Avatar_m_tn The doctor has prescribed two types of eye drops to be administered 4 times a day. They are ketorolac tromethamine and prednisolone acetate. Will my vision recover or is this just stopping further loss? I use to have better than 20/20 and am praying I will get it back.
Avatar_f_tn Dear Doctor, My husband has been suffering from eye redness and pain for the past 5 days in the left eye. He has been prescribed eye drops - Prednisolone Acetate+ Ofloxacin one drop ten times a day and Atropine Sulphate 1%- one drop three times a day. He has had a wisdom tooth in the lower jaw on the same side, removed 7-8 years ago. And was diagnosed with ankylosing spondylitis at a young age but this has been under control till date.
Avatar_m_tn This led to a very long treatment with both prednisolone acetate and injections into the eye. I eventually developed a bad enough cataract in that eye to have surgery due to the steroids. Another problem that occurred was that my pupil became fixed due to scarring a couple of times through the years and the opthalmologist attempted to break some of it up when he did the Cataract surgery.
Avatar_m_tn just 3 days back i got a blunt trauma on ma eye and due to that ma pupil muscle got damaged and it remain dilated. i went to specialist eye doctor and he prescribed me prednisolone acetate eye drops to reduce the inflammation and he told me that my pupil is paralysed buh my vision is perfect. today i had my check up n he said that my pupil is responding.so it is that my pupil will get back to normal after few days or month,?
Avatar_n_tn He prescribed me with Prednisolone Acetate eye drops 4x/day for 2 weeks. After four days, I have seen only a little improvement with the redness of my eye. I was wondering if you knew how long the redness would typically last? Thanks!
Avatar_m_tn The 2 drops are probably a steroid, such as Pred Forte (Prednisolone Acetate), and a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drop (NSAID) such as Prolensa (Bromfenac) Acular (Ketorolac), or Nevanac (nepafenac). This is the recommended treatment for CME, and should be continued until there is OCT evidence of improvement in the CME, and then the drops can be tapered.
Avatar_n_tn now dr has advised to use steriod prednisolone for treating retinal detachment. my question is that is it safe to use steriods??
1413519_tn?1281821801 Although one was already dilated from infection. These are the drops that were prescribed. Prednisolone acetate ophthalmic suspension. 1%. Ciprofloxacin Hydrochloride ophthalmic solution 0.3%. Homatropine 5%. This is my husbands take on the appointment. " My pupil is stuck and I have these drops to get it unstuck. I go back next week." My husband is a hard working machinist.
Avatar_m_tn Prednisolone Acetate, and 2: Ofloxacin. I am taking these several times a day for 6 weeks..for each eye. I was also diagnosed with glaucoma and am taking 2 eye drops for life..to reduce the pressure in my eyes. They are 1: Dorzolamide HCl/Timolol Maleate and 2: Latanoprost . These are all Ophthalmic solutions. Can the cataract surgery itself, or, the eye drop drugs I am taking as listed above, cause dry eye?..and if so, what would you recommend I take, if anything, to prevent this. Thanks.
Avatar_n_tn My eyes are making my head hurt and feel sick I also have pain and loss of strength in my left arm and have tingling in my hands and feet. I do have Multiple Sclerosis diagnoised in 99" relapes remmit. I had some methyl prednisolone 4 months ago and have had to have some more will this hurt me long term? I take rebiff now used to have beta1b but they thought this may not be strong enough for me, but why am i still having big relapes I rest as much as I can?
Avatar_n_tn He prescribed PREDNISOLONE ACETATE OPHTHALMIC SUSPENSION- ONE DROP LEFT EYE THREE TIMES DAILY. I have used this for two days and have seem NO improvement. My eye still itches, its still red, puffy and my vision is not up to par. What can I do and Why do I keep getting these infections?
415684_tn?1257332918 I have been treated for uveitis in both eyes for approx. 6 weeks. Was using Prednisolone Acetate q 2 to 3 hrs daily and went down to once daily. Within a few days, I had eyeball pain in my left eye. I returned to my retina specialist and he said I have PANuveitis. I am back on drops q 2 to 3 hrs and am dilating the left eye @ bedtime plus taking Advil 2 times a day. He would put me on steriods, but I also have ovarian cancer and am having a PET/CT in a couple of days.
Avatar_n_tn You are in the ten percent of individuals who are considered a "steroid responder." The prednisolone acetate drops that you have using to prevent host vs graft rejection, are the cause of the elevated pressure. Usually temporary and reversible once steroids are discontinued. In the meantime, if your pressure is too high or if there is a concern of glaucomatis optic nerve damage, your doctor might temporarily describe pressure-lowering eyedrops.
Avatar_n_tn The pressure might be high if you're a steroid responder and the drop the surgeon took you off of was Prednisolone acetate ophthalmic 1% (brand names PredForte, EconoPred). Or if you've had pneumatic retinopexy this may also cause an IOP increase. Vision recovery will take some time you just need to be patient.
Avatar_m_tn I went to an opthamoligist and he put me on a steroid eye drop called prednisolone acetate ophthalmic suspension 1% for 9 days @ three drops for 3 days then two drops for 3 days then one drop for 3 days. My eye cleared up and stayed clear for a few days, then the same thing again. He had me use the drops again but more drops for a longer period. 4drops for 5 days, 3 drops for 5 days, 2 drops for 5 days and finally one drop for 5 days.
