Treat eye inflammation and pain with Lotemax Eye Drops

Lotemax Eye Drops contains Loteprednol Etabonate (LE) a corticosteroid useful for treating inflammation produce by allergies, surgery, infection, and other conditions. This drug product is marketed by Bausch and Lomb. It is sold in the form of a 0.5% ophthalmic suspension. Loteprednol has low water solubility and is available in the form of a gel, suspension or ointment. Lotemax medication works by reducing the production of certain endogenous substances such as prostaglandins than produce pain, itching, and swelling. The active component was deliberately engineered to be a 'soft drug', one that efficiently produces an effect at the site of action and then rapidly breaks down to inactive components. This ultimately reduces the possibility of side effects. Lotemax medication is contraindicated in persons suffering from fungal, viral or mycobacterial infections.

I was suffering from a severe eye allergy. I had severe eye redness and pain. Thanks to Lotemax Eye Drops. It consists of loteprednol as the active component. It improved my symptoms such as itching, redness, and eye swelling. It is available at extremely economical rates at Mynetpharma. Along with economical rates, I also received various exciting offers and a substantial discount. You need a valid copy of prescription to purchase it.
