Were you looking for information on Gatifloxacin? Gatifloxicin is a common misspelling of gatifloxacin.
Gatifloxacin (Zymar®, Zymaxid™) is licensed for the treatment of bacterial conjunctivitis (pink eye), which is an infection of the conjunctiva (the thin membrane that lines the whites of the eyes and the inner eyelids). The medication comes as an eye drop that is applied to the affected eye two to eight times a day. It can be used in children as young as one year old.
Although most people have no problems with gatifloxacin, side effects are possible, such as eye irritation. These reactions are usually mild and temporary. However, if you experience persistent eye pain while using this medicine, or if your infection seems to be getting worse, contact your healthcare provider.
