INTRODUCTION

OCCUMOX contains Moxifloxacin which belongs to a group of antibiotics known as fluoroquinolones which works by killing bacteria that cause infections. It is used to treat infections of the eye (conjunctivitis) when caused by bacteria.

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.

Your doctor will prescribe the right dose depends on your child’s age and body weight. The common side effects are eye pain or irritation.
