Quixin Drug Interactions
Although there are no known drug interactions with Quixin, make sure your healthcare provider is aware of any other medications you are taking. For instance, if you are taking another type of eye drop, you may have to wait a certain amount of time before using Quixin. Even though there are currently no known interactions with this eye medication, they could be discovered in the future.
Quixin® (levofloxacin ophthalmic solution) is an antibiotic eye drop licensed to treat bacterial conjunctivitis (commonly called pink eye). This medication is not likely to interact with other drugs.
Quixin is applied directly into the eye. Very little of the medication is expected to be absorbed into the bloodstream. Because only very small amounts of the drug are found in the blood after normal use, Quixin will likely not interact with other medications.
Some other sources list several drugs that may potentially interact with Quixin. However, this information is based on known drug interactions with levofloxacin in the tablet or intravenous form. These interactions are unlikely to be a problem with Quixin.
Although Quixin is not likely to interact with other medications, you may need to space its use from that of other eye drops. If you are using more than one eye drop medication, talk to your healthcare provider about the best way to use these medications together.
At this time, it seems unlikely that Quixin would interact with other medications, as very little of it is expected to be absorbed into the bloodstream. However, this does not necessarily mean that there really are no drug interactions with Quixin. This medication has not been studied with every possible drug, and there may be negative interactions that are yet to be discovered.
It is always a good idea to make sure your healthcare provider has a complete list of all your medications. Make sure you tell your healthcare provider about any medications (including prescription and nonprescription drugs, herbal supplements, or vitamins) you are taking, even if you believe they will not interact with other medicines.
