    BROLENE Eye Drops

    SCHEDULING STATUS:
    Not scheduled

    PROPRIETARY NAME
    (and dosage form):


    BROLENE Eye Drops

    COMPOSITION:
    BROLENE Eye Drops contain:
    Propamidine isethionate 1 mg/mL
    Preservative:
    Benzalkonium chloride solution 0,01% v/v.

    PHARMACOLOGICAL CLASSIFICATION
    15.4 Ophthalmic preparations. Other.

    PHARMACOLOGICAL ACTION
    Propamidine isethionate has antibacterial and anti-fungal properties. It is active against pyogenic cocci and some of the Gram negative bacilli, including those frequently involved in superficial infection. Moreover, it is often effective against staphylococci resistant to penicillin and other antibiotics and is less prone than the latter to promote the emergence of resistant strains of organisms. It is well tolerated, unlikely to give rise to sensitisation reactions and its action is not reduced by tissue fluids, serum or pus.

    INDICATIONS
    For the treatment of eye infections and for the prevention of infection resulting from minor injuries to the eye.

    CONTRA-INDICATIONS
    In the unlikely event of a sensitisation reaction resulting from the use of BROLENE Eye Drops, treatment should be discontinued immediately.

    WARNINGS
    As the possibility of adverse effects on the corneal permeability and the danger of disruption of the corneal epithelium with prolonged or repeated usage of benzalkonium chloride preserved ophthalmological preparations cannot be excluded, regular ophthalmological examination is required.
    Caution should be exercised in the use of benzalkonium chloride preserved topical medication over an extended period in patients with extensive ocular surface disease.

    DOSAGE AND DIRECTIONS FOR USE
    One or two drops should be placed in the affected eye four times a day for not more than a week.

    SIDE-EFFECTS AND SPECIAL PRECAUTIONS
    If used as directed, no adverse reactions are to be expected. In some susceptible individuals, however, a slight smarting which passes off quickly and is of no significance may occur.
    Avoid contamination of drops during use.
    If there is no improvement in the condition after seven days treatment, medical advice should be obtained.

    IDENTIFICATION
    A clear, bright, colourless solution.
