I was given this drug in eye drop form for an eye infection, I have been on it for two days, I have not seen a complete clear up, but I believe I am on the way to it. I can taste the drug, not too unpleasant, that seems to be the only "down side".

Comment:
I got 10 mL for $15 with my co-pay. I was told to put this drop in my eyes 4 times a day for 10 days, along with lubrication drops every hour. A plus and a negative with this drug is that it really dries out your eyes, which is good for me because it reminds me to put the lubrication drops in. It also stings for about 10 seconds when I put it in, but it's nothing I can't handle. It ... Show Full Comment
