Drugs for treatment of diseases of eyes. Antibiotics. Chloramphenicol.
The code of automatic telephone exchange S01AA01
Pharmacokinetics At properties of instillation of drug in an eye happens intraocular and partially system absorption. At the same time therapeutic concentration of chloramphenicol are created in a vitreous, a cornea, an iris of the eye, watery moisture of an eye (chloramphenicol does not get into a crystalline lens).
Chloramphenicol – a bacteriostatic antibiotic of a broad spectrum of activity. The mechanism of antimicrobial action is connected with disturbance of synthesis with disturbance of protein synthesis of microorganisms.
Works bacteriostatically. It is active concerning gram-positive (staphylococcus and streptococci) and gram-negative cocci (a gonokokka, a meningokokka), many bacteria (an intestinal and hemophilic stick, salmonellas, shigellas, klebsiyella, serration, iyersiniya, proteas), rickettsiae, spirochetes. Drug is active concerning the strains resistant to penicillin, streptomycin, streptocides.
– a keratitis
– blefarokonjyunktivit blefarita
– a keratoconjunctivitis
– a neuroparalytic keratitis in the presence of consecutive bacterial
– at inefficiency or intolerance of drugs of penicillin, tetracycline, streptocides
the Route of administration and doses
Drug is dug in in a conjunctival sac:
to children from 1 year to 8 years – on 1 drop in each eye 3-4 times a day
to children are more senior than 8 years and the adult – on 1-2 drop in each eye 3-4 times a day.
– allergic reactions
of the Contraindication
– hypersensitivity to drug components
– individual intolerance
– skin diseases (psoriasis, eczema, fungal infections)
– a sharp intermittent porphyria
– oppression of a marrowy hemopoiesis
– deficit glyukozo-6-fosfatdegidrogenazy
– pregnancy and a lactation
– early children’s age (first months of life)
Co-administration of chloramphenicol with the drugs oppressing a hemopoiesis (streptocides, cytostatics) influencing a metabolism in a liver with radiation therapy – increases risk of development of side effect.
At simultaneous use with erythromycin, clindamycin, lincomycin the mutual weakening of action is noted because chloramphenicol can force out these drugs from the connected state or interfere with their linking with a subunit 50S of bacterial ribosomes. When assigning with oral hypoglycemic drugs strengthening of their action due to suppression of metabolism in a liver and increases in their concentration in plasma is noted.
Chloramphenicol suppresses the fermental system of P450 cytochrome therefore at simultaneous use with barbiturates, Phenytoinum, indirect anticoagulants note weakening of metabolism of these drugs, delay of removal and increase in their concentration in plasma.
Reduces antibacterial effect of aminoglycosides, penicillin, polymyxin B, tetracyclines, cephalosporins, erythromycin. Also it is not compatible to ascorbic acid, a hydrocortisone, group B vitamins.
it is not necessary to appoint drug with the preventive purpose. Unreasonable appointment of drug and its use at easy forms of infectious diseases is not allowed, especially in children’s practice.
In the course of treatment the systematic control of a picture of peripheral blood is necessary.
With care appoint to the patients receiving earlier treatment by cytostatic drugs or radiation therapy.
The feature of influence of medicine on ability to run the vehicle or potentially dangerous mechanisms
needs to be careful at control of motor transport or potentially dangerous mechanisms.
Symptoms: decrease in visual acuity
Treatment: drug withdrawal
