INTRODUCTION

ENTRAK SOOTHE contains Tacrolimus which belongs to the group of medicines called macrolide immunosuppressants. It is used to treat allergic eye diseases like uveitis, ocular inflammation, vernal keratoconjunctivitis, atopic blepharoconjunctivitis and intractable allergic conjunctivitis. It is also effective in prevention of graft rejection in patients undergone corneal transplant or with GVHD.

Tacrolimus is macrolide isolated from a strain of Streptomyces tsukubaensis. It helps in reducing eye inflammation. Always apply this medicine as directed by your physician. Wash your hands thoroughly before and after application. Make sure to remove your contact lenses (if you wear them) before application and wait for at least 15 minutes before putting them back. The most common side effects of applying this medicine are eye irritation and burning sensation. Before taking this medicine, inform your doctor if you have liver disease or you are pregnant or breastfeeding.

USES OF ENTRAK SOOTHE

  • Treats allergic eye diseases
  • Prevents graft rejection in patients undergone corneal transplant

HOW ENTRAK SOOTHE WORKS

Topically applied tacrolimus blocks the early phase of T-cell activation by inhibiting the activity of calcineurin (a calcium-dependent phosphatase transmitting chemical). It also helps in the reduction of activated T lymphocytes, proinflammatory cytokines and markers of apoptosis which damages the eyes. Additionally, it also inhibits the release of histamine from mast cells and impairs prostaglandin synthesis.

DIRECTIONS FOR USE

Apply this medicine as directed by your physician. It is only for ophthalmic use. Your doctor will decide the dose and duration of the therapy depending upon your condition. Continue to use this medicine, as long as your doctor tells you to do so, to obtain better results.
