Maxitrol general information

What is Maxitrol used for?

Maxitrol Eye Ointment is a combination medication used for short term treatment of inflammatory conditions of the external part of the eye, that have become infected or are likely to become infected and where use of an antibacterial is required.  These conditions include, conjunctivitis (also known as pink eye), which is inflammation of the conjunctiva, the outermost layer of the eye and the inside of the eyelid; blepharitis or inflammation of the eyelid; sty, which is infection of a hair follicle on the eyelid; and keratitis or inflammation of the cornea (the clear area at the front of the eye over the lens and pupil).  Maxitrol Eye Ointment helps relieve symptoms of eye infection including sore eyes, redness, inflammation, discharge and crusting around the eyelid.

How does Maxitrol work?

Maxitrol Eye Ointment contains a corticosteroid and two antibiotics used in combination to treat bacterial infection and inflammation of the external part of the eye.  Dexamethasone in Maxitrol Eye Ointment is a highly potent corticosteroid and works by reducing the vascular (blood vessels) and cellular inflammatory response that triggers inflammation, primarily by blocking the production of inflammatory chemicals, like prostaglandins and leukotrienes from inflammatory cells; also by preventing the migration of inflammatory cells into inflamed tissues.  This reduces the swelling, redness and pain associated with inflammation.  Neomycin in Maxitrol Eye Ointment is a broad-spectrum aminoglycoside antibiotic that is used in topical medications and is effective against wide range of bacteria found in infected skin.  These include Staphylococcus aureus, Corynebacterium diphteriae, Streptococcus viridans, Escherichia coli, Klebsiella pneumoniae, Proteus vulgaris, Aerobacter aerogenes, and Haemophilus influenzae.  Neomycin in Maxitrol Eye Ointment works by blocking bacterial protein synthesis and inhibiting the production of proteins needed for bacterial cell growth.  The antibiotic Polymyxin in Maxitrol Eye Ointment is effective against Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Aerobacter aerogenes, Escherichia coli, Klebsiella pneumoniae and Koch-Weeks bacillus, and is often used in combination with another antibiotics for topical bacterial infection.  Polymyxin in Maxitrol Eye Ointment works by disrupting the bacterial cell membrane, which makes it more permeable and the bacteria more susceptible to the effects of other antibiotics.  The combination of corticosteroid and two antibiotics in Maxitrol Eye Ointment helps relieve symptoms of inflammation and prevents spread of infection.
