USE OF DEXYCU
Important safety Information
Talk to your doctor if you have a history of high pressure in the eye or glaucoma.
Using steroids, including DEXYCU, for long periods may cause high pressure in the eye. This high pressure may lead to glaucoma, which can harm your vision.
Using steroids after eye surgery may slow down healing of the eye.
Talk to your doctor if you have a history of infections of the eye.
Steroids, including DEXYCU, may cause an infection to get worse, last longer, or increase your risk of infection. Steroids, including DEXYCU, may lead to or worsen cataracts (clouding of the eye). Cataracts can harm your vision.
Tell your doctor if you are pregnant or planning to become pregnant. DEXYCU has not been studied in pregnant women.
Tell your doctor if you are breastfeeding or are planning to breastfeed. There is no information on DEXYCU being present in human milk, how it might affect infants or a mother’s milk production. The risk of breastfeeding should be considered based on the mother’s clinical need for DEXYCU.
DEXYCU has not been studied in children. Age does not seem to affect efficacy and side effects in adults.
The most common side effects of DEXYCU are increased pressure in the eye and swelling of the front of the eye. This swelling may include the iris (the colored area around the pupil). In a clinical study, some patients treated with DEXYCU needed eyedrops to treat side effects after eye surgery. Tell your doctor if you have any side effect that bothers you or does not go away.
