INTRODUCTION

MOXIGRAM contains Moxifloxacin which belongs to a group of antibiotics known as fluoroquinolones which works by killing bacteria that cause infections. It is indicated to treat bacterial conjunctivitis caused by susceptible microorganisms, corneal ulcers and blepharitis.

Moxifloxacin is a sterile ophthalmic, 8-methoxy fluoroquinolone anti-infective for topical ophthalmic use. The antibacterial action of moxifloxacin results from inhibition of the topoisomerase II (DNA gyrase) and topoisomerase IV. DNA gyrase is an essential enzyme that is involved in the replication, transcription and repair of bacterial DNA. Topoisomerase IV is an enzyme known to play a key role in the partitioning of the chromosomal DNA during bacterial cell division. It provides prolonged contact with ocular surface that ensures longer duration of action.

Always use MOXIGRAM exactly as directed by your doctor. Before using this medicine, inform your doctor if you have eye diseases or infection, are pregnant or breastfeeding. It is not recommended for use in infants below one year of age. The common side effects are eye pain or irritation and dry eyes. Do not wear contact lenses if you have signs and symptoms of bacterial conjunctivitis.
