ALREX Ophthalmic Suspension is indicated for the temporary relief of the signs and symptoms of seasonal allergic conjunctivitis

Important Safety Information

As with other ophthalmic corticosteroids, ALREX is contraindicated in most viral diseases of the cornea and conjunctiva, and in mycobacterial and fungal diseases of the eye. Prolonged use of corticosteroids may result in secondary glaucoma, cataract formation, and secondary ocular infections following suppression of the host immune response and/or perforation of the globe
The renewal of the medication order beyond 14 days should be made by a physician only after examination with the aid of magnification, such as slit lamp biomicroscopy and, where appropriate, fluorescein staining. If this product is used for 10 days or longer, intraocular pressure should be monitored
The most common adverse events in patients treated with ALREX were abnormal vision, blurring, burning, chemosis, discharge, dry eyes, epiphora, foreign body sensation, itching, and photophobia. Non-ocular adverse reactions include headache, rhinitis, and pharyngitis
