INTRODUCTION

FLUPRED contains Difluprednate which belongs to a group of medicines called Corticosteroids. It is used to treat inflammation and pain associated with cataract surgery and endogenous anterior uveitis (inflammation in the middle part of the eye).

Corticosteroid inhibits the inflammatory response to a variety of inciting agents and may delay or slow healing. It also inhibits edema, fibrin deposition, capillary dilation, leukocyte migration, capillary proliferation, fibroblast proliferation, deposition of collagen, and scar formation associated with inflammation.

Before using FLUPRED inform your doctor if you have liver, kidney or heart problems, are pregnant or breastfeeding. The common side effects are burning sensation, eye irritation and watery eyes. Avoid touching your eyelids or surrounding areas with the dropper tip of the bottle.  If you wear contact lenses, remove them before using this medicine, do not wear a contact lens if your eye is red.
