Pranoprofen's main clinical component is a substance commonly referred to as pranoprofen. Most pharmacists describe Pranoprofen as one of the most effective non-steroidal anti-inflammatory products on the market; in other words, Pranoprofen is an NSAID. Pranoprofen is mainly recognized for its anti-inflammatory effects, which make it the first medicine of choice for certain eye clinical disorders.
Pranoprofen can be employed in various eye medical conditions that would benefit from its anti-inflammatory effects. Your ophthalmologist will help you determine whether a therapy course with Pranoprofen is indeed the adequate solution for you.


Although this eye medication is widespread, not all individuals are allowed to start using Pranoprofen; this is due to the fact that Pranoprofen is associated with a set of contra-indications. In other words, the use of this anti-inflammatory eye remedy is forbidden in the case of patients who suffer from hypersensitivity to any of its ingredients. In order to make sure that no complication of this origin affects your future therapy course with Pranoprofen, you should undergo a set of allergy tests before you start employing Pranoprofen. Furthermore, you should allow your main clinical prescriber become up to date with your current medical condition, as the presence of certain disorders (especially eye medical conditions) may also force you to seek an alternative therapy option for your condition.

Intake Guidelines

One of the most important aspects with which a patient who plans to use Pranoprofen on a regular basis should be well aware of is the importance of keeping the product's dropper sterile. The pack of this NSAID is known to contain a sterile dropper, which is able to prevent the patient from developing certain unpleasant complications (in most cases, such complications are reported as infections of the eye(s)). The dropper can become easily contaminated if the patient touches it with his or her hands, eyes, or lets it come into direct contact with any infected surfaces. In case you suspect you have contaminated your Pranoprofen dropper you should go to the nearest pharmaceutical location and purchase a new device.
In order to achieve the expected results from your therapy course with Pranoprofen you should employ all of your doses of Pranoprofen in a professional manner. The medical guide-book that accompanied a pack of Pranoprofen contains all the medical facts that you should take into consideration concerning the proper ways of administering your doses. If you are unable to understand certain aspects that are described in the professional leaflet of Pranoprofen, you should refer to your main clinical prescriber for the required explanations.


Although you can easily obtain some general information concerning the average dosing routine with Pranoprofen that is prescribed to most patients that share your clinical condition, we strongly recommend you to discuss this matter with your PD. He or she may want to prescribe you a personalized dosing schedule with this eye remedy, depending on your age, sex, severity of your disorder, and so on. This personalized dosing routine with Pranoprofen should imply you experiencing a safer and a more effective therapy course with Pranoprofen.


No patient should overlook the presence of over-dosage with Pranoprofen (or with any other NSAID), as this could trigger severe consequences. Besides the fact that such a condition will probably impair the beneficial results of your therapy course with Pranoprofen, exposure to a mega dose of Pranoprofen will also trigger a set of adverse clinical manifestations. Most patients who had been diagnosed with such a medical condition accused the presence of blurred vision, temporary eye loss, eye itching, redness, etc. The severity and the persistence of these symptoms depend on the extra amount of Pranoprofen which you have employed. A patient who suspects to be in such a condition should make sure that they receive the needed supportive / symptomatic therapy in the shortest time.

Missed Dose

Just like overdoses with Pranoprofen, neglected doses of Pranoprofen can also impair the beneficial results of your therapy (by delaying or by diminishing them). Although such a medical condition should not trigger any severe consequences, you should not be surprised if your initial symptoms recur (especially if you have formed a habit out of missing Pranoprofen doses). Your PD or any other ophthalmologist should be able to give your precise details on how you should deal with such a disturbance of your therapy course with this NSAID.

Side Effects

Most medicines tend to lead to the development of a set of unpleasant symptoms, which accompany their expected, beneficial results. Unfortunately, Pranoprofen is no exception. For example, some patients who were being treated with Pranoprofen accused the presence of allergy symptoms, of eye redness / itching / dryness, and so on. Although not all individuals who are being treated with this NSAID will experience such unpleasant symptoms, they are quite common among those who do not follow an adequate dosing schedule with Pranoprofen or who do not administer their doses of Pranoprofen in a professional way. Your main prescriber will help you deal with your developed adverse manifestations as soon as you alert them of their presence.


You should avoid accompanying your therapy course with Pranoprofen with the use of other anti-inflammatory products that belong to the same class. Furthermore, using other eye-remedies (eye ointments, drops, etc) may also be considered inappropriate. Ask for your PD's professional expertise concerning such delicate clinical matters.
