Lotemax gel is used to treat eye inflammation and pain after eye surgery.

The active ingredient in Lotemax gel is loteprednol, which belongs to a class of drugs known as corticosteroids. Loteprednol works by relieving symptoms such as swelling, redness, and itching in the eye.


  • Use Lotemax exactly as prescribed by your healthcare provider, typically 4 times a day.
  • Wash your hands thoroughly before applying the medication.
  • Remove contact lenses before using Lotemax and wait for your healthcare provider's approval before wearing them again.
  • Apply the eye gel as directed:
    • Shake the bottle upside down once to fill the tip.
    • Pull down your lower eyelid to create a pouch.
    • Place the prescribed number of gel into the pouch.
    • Gently close your eye and roll your eyeball to spread the medication.
    • Avoid blinking or rubbing your eye.
  • Repeat for the other eye if instructed.
  • Use other eye medications with at least a 5-10 minute gap between applications. Apply gel before gels.
  • Wait for your vision to clear before driving or operating machinery.
  • Use Lotemax consistently, at the same times each day.
  • Continue using Lotemax for the entire prescribed duration, even if your symptoms improve.
  • Tell your healthcare provider if your condition worsens or doesn't improve after a few days of using Lotemax.


  • Don't use Lotemax more often than prescribed or increase your dosage.
  • Don't use Lotemax if it appears contaminated (discolored or with particles).
  • Don't stop using Lotemax abruptly without consulting your healthcare provider.
  • Don't touch the bottle tip to your eye or any other surface.
  • Don't use Lotemax while wearing contact lenses unless your healthcare provider approves it.
