Section Number

Subject

Change

4.2

Posology and method of administration

Text added

Shake well before use

Safety and effectiveness in paediatric patients have not been established. No posology can be recommended.

 

To reduce possible systemic absorption, it may be recommended that the lacrimal sac be compressed at the medial canthus (punctal occlusion) for 1 minute. This should be performed immediately following the instillation of each drop

4.4

Special warnings and precautions for use

Text added

Safety and effectiveness have not been demonstrated in children of the age group two years or below.

 

Systemic adverse events may occur with extensive use of topical steroids; punctal occlusion may be recommended (see Section 4.2).

 

Pred Mild contains benzalkonium chloride, which is irritant to the eye and could cause discoloration of soft (hydrophilic) contact lenses. The patient should avoid contact with contact lenses and therefore be instructed to remove them before Pred Mild is used and then wait for at least 15 minutes before reinsertion.

 

Pred Mild contains sodium metabisulphite, a sulphite that may cause allergic-type reactions, including anaphylactic symptoms and life-threatening or less severe asthmatic episodes. Sulphite sensitivity is seen more frequently in asthmatic patients.

 

 

4.6

Pregnancy and lactation

Text added

Administration of corticosteroids to pregnant animals has been associated with abnormalities of foetal development therefore this product should be used with caution during pregnancy only if the potential benefit outweighs the potential risk to the foetus.

4.7

Effects on ability to drive and use machines

Text added

Upon instillation, patients may experience transient blurred vision which may impair the ability to drive or use machinery. If affected, patients should not drive or use machinery until their vision has cleared.
