Q. The eye drops drain into my mouth. Is it dangerous?


Hello doctor,

The eye drops Loteprednol and Tobramycin drain into my mouth through my eye. I am now feeling the taste of the medicine into my mouth. Is it dangerous?

Welcome to icliniq.com.

No, it is not dangerous. It just goes to show that drainage of tears is very good in your body so do not worry.

The next time when you put drops, put pressure on the nasal side of the lower eyelid for one minute. It will not reach your mouth.

But the Loteprednol should not be used for more than four to six weeks. It may harm your eyes.
