This medication is very thick and hard to administer. Received 3 different eye drops after eye surgery. All were 5ml bottles. I have ran out of the Besivance far quicker than the others. Cost is expensive.

Severe redness eye pain and overall depression and miserable on this drug after retinal surgery. Do not use this, drug you may be miserable on it! "Zymaxid" is way superior with no side effects. I could barely function for a week and realized it was the "Besivance" reaction! Eye pain was severe and overwhelming until I stopped then I was fine. Use at your own risk!!!!!!

Besivance is wildly expensive, as are the other 2 medications required for my cataract surgery, pre and post surgery. The ophthalmologist's office contributed this as a sample, otherwise I probably would have just had to live with the cataracts. The consistency is like a thick goop. It became crusty and left residue on my lower eyelashes which made me think it had gone bad. I wish I didn't have to worry about taking it again when my other eye soon will be operated on.

It is super thick that doesn't dissolve inside your eye. Considering the price tag, I don't think it has a good p/p rate.

I had an allergic reaction after two drops - my ring finger and ear lobes got swollen & itched. Removed gold jewlery Dr. never heard of such a reaction. Stopped drops. Took bnaydryl which helped itching. Now trying Polymyxin B Sulfate. After two drops - no reaction yet. Will report back. Taken due to pre cataract surgery.

Used with prolensa after cataract surgery. After using it twice I broke out in hives on my head, face and neck. Paid $60 for 2 drops.

This medication was used following cataract surgery. It is very thick, and did not last for the entire treatment period. The cost is outrageous! Medicare formulary, even with additional drug coverage, does NOT cover this medication.
