DESCRIPTION:

Each gram of ointment contains 500 units of bacitracin in a low melting special base containing White Petrolatum and Mineral Oil.

CLINICAL PHARMACOLOGY:

The antibiotic, bacitracin, exerts a profound action against many gram-positive pathogens, including the common Streptococci and Staphlococci. It is also destructive for certain gram-negative organisms. It is ineffective against fungi.

INDICATIONS AND USAGE:

For the treatment of superficial ocular infections involving the conjunctiva and/or cornea caused by bacitracin susceptible organisms.

CONTRAINDICATIONS:

This product should not be used in patients with a history of hypersensitivity to bacitracin.

PRECAUTIONS:

Baciguent® ophthalmic ointment should not be used in deep-seated ocular infections or in those that are likely to become systemic. The prolonged use of antibiotic containing preparations may result in overgrowth of nonsusceptible organisms particularly fungi. If new infections develop during treatment appropriate antibiotic or chemotherapy should be instituted.

ADVERSE REACTIONS:

Bacitracin has such a low incidence of allergenicity that for all practical purposes side reactions are practically non-existent. However, if such reaction should occur, therapy should be discontinued.

To report SUSPECTED ADVERSE REACTIONS, contact Woodward Pharma Services LLC at 1-844-200-7910 or FDA at 1-800-FDA-1088 or www.fda.gov/medwatch.

DOSAGE AND ADMINISTRATION:

The ointment should be applied directly into the conjunctival sac 1 to 3 times daily. In blepharitis all scales and crusts should be carefully removed and the ointment then spread uniformly over the lid margins. Patients should be instructed to take appropriate measures to avoid gross contamination of the ointment when applying the ointment directly to the infected eye.
