Alrex (loteprednol etabonate ophthalmic suspension) is indicated for the temporary relief of the signs and symptoms of seasonal allergic conjunctivitis, which is inflammation of the eyes caused by seasonal allergies.

Alrex is specifically indicated for the temporary relief of signs and symptoms of seasonal allergic conjunctivitis. It can be used to alleviate the discomfort associated with this condition, such as itching, redness, and swelling of the eyes.

Alrex is an ophthalmic suspension that is applied directly to the eyes. It contains the active ingredient loteprednol etabonate, which is a steroid medicine that helps reduce inflammation in the eyes.


  • Use Alrex Suspension exactly as prescribed by your healthcare provider, typically 4 times a day.
  • Consult your healthcare provider about wearing contact lenses during treatment, especially if your eyes are red.
  • If your healthcare provider allows contact lenses, remove them before applying the drops and wait at least 10-15 minutes before reinserting.
  • Wash your hands thoroughly before using Alrex Suspension.
  • Shake the bottle well before each use.
  • Apply the drops following these steps:
    • Tilt your head back, look up, and pull down your lower eyelid to create a pouch.
    • Instill one drop directly into the affected eye.
    • Close your eye gently for 1-2 minutes, applying pressure near the corner of your eye to prevent drainage.
    • Repeat for the other eye if instructed.
  • Avoid touching the dropper tip to your eye or any other surface.
  • Replace the cap securely after each use.
  • Use Alrex Suspension at consistent times each day for maximum benefit.
  • Continue using the medication for the entire prescribed duration, even if symptoms improve.
  • Inform your healthcare provider if your condition worsens or doesn't improve after 2 days of treatment.


  • Don't skip doses or use Alrex Suspension more often than prescribed.
  • Don't use the medication for longer than recommended by your healthcare provider.
  • Don't stop using Alrex Suspension abruptly without consulting your healthcare provider.
  • Don't use contaminated Alrex Suspension (discolored drops).
  • Don't use Alrex Suspension with other eye medications within 5-10 minutes of each other. Apply eye drops before ointments.
