Neo-Poly-Dex (dexamethasone / neomycin / polymyxin b) for Blepharitis "My eyes stayed dry, red and irritated. After only 5 days, my eyes begin to clear up. Used it twice daily 2 drops each time. The only downside, was the stinging burning for the first 5-10 seconds, after putting drops in."

For Blepharitis "This is the first eye drop that has actually worked to stop my chronic dry eyes. Started out taking 1 drop each eye 3x/day, am now down to 1 drop each eye as needed, which is usually once a week! Eyes are tearing normally, no more crusting or burning!"

Neo-Poly-Dex (dexamethasone / neomycin / polymyxin b) "My doctor gave me Neo/Poly/ Dex sup for mild ear infection ( a very itchy one). A I used it for 5 days and swimmer’s ear symptom are all gone. (3 drops , every 8 hrs for 5 days). This actually made your ear itch more on first dose. But fine after."

Neo-Poly-Dex (dexamethasone / neomycin / polymyxin b) "This medication caused my eyes to swell, sacks like fluid under each one, dried my skin all around both eyes and caused redness. After 3 days my eyes started to itch. Returned to the doctor after 2 days and was told to use cold compresses and Benadryl for 5 days. It has been four days and the swelling and dry skin is still around the eyes."

"I had strabismus surgery in both eyes and after a week and 2 days of putting this ointment in both my eyes twice daily I found myself being very jittery, anxious and not able to sleep. The drug did help with the pain and redness in both my eyes, however, the steroids in this combo drug made me feel awful!"
