Side Effects of Tobramycin and Dexamethasone

Reported Side Effects

Tobramycin and dexamethasone has been studied thoroughly in clinical trials. However, there is little specific information about the frequency of tobramycin and dexamethasone side effects available. In particular, there are no specific percentages available for the various reported side effects.
 
Reported side effects of this drug include:
 
  • Eye lid itching
  • Eye lid swelling
  • Redness of the eye.
     
Additionally, it should be noted that eye ointments (including tobramycin and dexamethasone ointment, but not the drops) often cause temporary blurred vision. Also, it is common for many different types of eye drops to cause temporary stinging or burning.
 

Final Thoughts

You may experience some or none of the tobramycin and dexamethasone side effects listed in this article. Unfortunately, there is no way for your healthcare provider to know beforehand if you will have problems with a medicine that you have never tried.
 
Therefore, make sure to let your healthcare provider know if you develop any side effects while using this product or if you develop something that "just does not seem right." While it may not be related to tobramycin and dexamethasone use, your healthcare provider will be able to diagnose and treat the problem.
