NATACYN (natamycin (5%) ophthalmic suspension)
Prescription
Topical
Ophthalmic Suspension
Antifungals
Indications/Usage:

Indicated for the treatment of fungal blepharitis, conjunctivitis, and keratitis caused by susceptible organisms including Fusarium solani keratitis.

As in other forms of suppurative keratitis, initial and sustained therapy of fungal keratitis should be determined by the clinical diagnosis, laboratory diagnosis by smear and culture of corneal scrapings and drug response.

Whenever possible the in vitro activity of natamycin against the responsible fungus should be determined. The effectiveness of natamycin as a single agent in fungal endophthalmitis has not been established.


Typical Dosing:  

Fungal blepharitis, conjunctivitis and keratitis:

  • SHAKE WELL BEFORE USING.
  • The preferred initial dosage in fungal keratitis is 1 drop instilled in the conjunctival sac at hourly or 2-hourly intervals.
  • The frequency of application can usually be reduced to 1 drop 6 – 8 times daily after the first 3 – 4 days.
  • Therapy should generally be continued for 14 – 21 days or until there is resolution of active fungal keratitis.
  • In many cases, it may be helpful to reduce the dosage gradually at 4 – 7 day intervals to assure that the replicating organism has been eliminated. Less frequent initial dosage (4 – 6 daily applications) may be sufficient in fungal blepharitis and conjunctivitis.

Prescription
Topical
Ointment
Antibiotic–Steroid Combination Medications
Indications/Usage:

Indicated for steroid-responsive inflammatory ocular conditions for which a corticosteroid is indicated and where bacterial infection or a risk of bacterial infection exists.

Ocular corticosteroids are indicated in inflammatory conditions of the palpebral and bulbar conjunctiva, cornea, and anterior segment of the globe where the inherent risk of corticosteroid use in certain infective conjunctivitides is accepted to obtain a diminution in edema and inflammation. They are also indicated in chronic anterior uveitis and corneal injury from chemical, radiation, or thermal burns, or penetration of foreign bodies. 

The use of a combination drug with an anti-infective component is indicated where the risk of infection is high or where there is an expectation that potentially dangerous numbers of bacteria will be present in the eye. 

The particular anti-infective drugs in this product are active against the following common bacterial eye pathogens: Staphylococcus aureus, streptococci, including: Streptococcus pneumoniae; Escherichia coli; Haemophilus influenzae; Klebsiella/Enterobacter species Neisseria species; Pseudomonas aeruginosa. The product does not provide adequate coverage against Serratia marcescens.

This medication has a broad FDA approval for "steroid-responsive inflammatory conditions of the palpebral and bulbar conjunctiva, cornea, and anterior segment of the globe." Under our interpretation of this indication we have linked this medication with conditions we understand to be categorized as "steroid-responsive inflammatory conditions of the palpebral and bulbar conjunctiva, cornea, and anterior segment of the globe."

NORCO (hydrocodone bitartrate (5 mg; 7.5 mg; 10 mg) – acetaminophen (325 mg) tablets)
Opioid
Prescription
Oral
Tablets
Opiates/Opioids
Indications/Usage:

Indicated for the management of pain severe enough to require an opioid analgesic and for which alternative treatments are inadequate.

Limitations of Use

Because of the risks of addiction, abuse, and misuse, with opioids, even at recommended doses [See WARNINGS in package insert], reserve NORCO® for use in patients for whom alternative treatment options (e.g., nonopioid analgesics):

  • Have not been tolerated, or are not expected to be tolerated.
  • Have not provided adequate analgesia, or are not expected to provide adequate analgesia.

Typical Dosing:  

Pain severe enough to require an opioid analgesic and for which alternative treatments are inadequate.

  • Important dosage and administration instructions:
    • Use the lowest effective dosage for the shortest duration consistent with individual patient treatment goals [See WARNINGS in package insert].
    • Initiate the dosing regimen for each patient individually, taking into account the patient's severity of pain, patient response, prior analgesic treatment experience, and risk factors for addiction, abuse, and misuse [See WARNINGS in package insert].
    • Follow patients closely for respiratory depression, especially within the first 24 – 72 hours of initiating therapy and following dosage increases with NORCO® and adjust the dosage accordingly [See WARNINGS in package insert].
  • Initial dosage:
    • NORCO® 5/325: The usual adult dosage is 1 or 2 tablets every 4 – 6 hours as needed for pain. The total daily dosage should not exceed 8 tablets.
    • NORCO® 7.5/325 and NORCO® 10/325: The usual adult dosage is 1 tablet every 4 – 6 hours as needed for pain. The total daily dosage should not exceed 6 tablets.
  • Conversion from other opioids to NORCO®: 
    • There is inter-patient variability in the potency of opioid drugs and opioid formulations. Therefore, a conservative approach is advised when determining the total daily dosage of NORCO® .  
    • It is safer to underestimate a patient’s 24-hour NORCO® dosage than to overestimate the 24-hour NORCO dosage and manage an adverse reaction due to overdose.
  • Conversion from NORCO® to Extended-Release Hydrocodone:
    • The relative bioavailability of hydrocodone from NORCO® compared to extended-release hydrocodone products is unknown, so conversion to extended-release products must be accompanied by close observation for signs of excessive sedation and respiratory depression.
  • Titration and maintenance of therapy:
    • Individually titrate NORCO® to a dose that provides adequate analgesia and minimizes adverse reactions. Continually reevaluate patients receiving NORCO® to assess the maintenance of pain control and the relative incidence of adverse reactions, as well as monitoring for the development of addiction, abuse, or misuse [See WARNINGS in package insert]. Frequent communication is important among the prescriber, other members of the healthcare team, the patient, and the caregiver/family during periods of changing analgesic requirements, including initial titration.
    • If the level of pain increases after dosage stabilization, attempt to identify the source of increased pain before increasing the NORCO® dosage. If unacceptable opioid-related adverse reactions are observed, consider reducing the dosage. Adjust the dosage to obtain an appropriate balance between management of pain and opioid-related adverse reactions.
  • Safe reduction or discontinuation of NORCO®:
    • Do not abruptly discontinue NORCO® in patients who may be physically dependent on opioids. Rapid discontinuation of opioid analgesics in patients who are physically dependent on opioids has resulted in serious withdrawal symptoms, uncontrolled pain, and suicide. Rapid discontinuation has also been associated with attempts to find other sources of opioid analgesics, which may be confused with drug-seeking for abuse. Patients may also attempt to treat their pain or withdrawal symptoms with illicit opioids, such as heroin, and other substances.
    • When a decision has been made to decrease the dose or discontinue therapy in an opioid-dependent patient taking NORCO®, there are a variety of factors that should be considered, including the dose of NORCO® the patient has been taking, the duration of treatment, the type of pain being treated, and the physical and psychological attributes of the patient. It is important to ensure ongoing care of the patient and to agree on an appropriate tapering schedule and follow-up plan so that patient and provider goals and expectations are clear and realistic. When opioid analgesics are being discontinued due to a suspected substance use disorder, evaluate and treat the patient, or refer for evaluation and treatment of the substance use disorder. Treatment should include evidence-based approaches, such as medication assisted treatment of opioid use disorder. Complex patients with co-morbid pain and substance use disorders may benefit from referral to a specialist.
    • There are no standard opioid tapering schedules that are suitable for all patients. Good clinical practice dictates a patient-specific plan to taper the dose of the opioid gradually. For patients on NORCO® who are physically opioid-dependent, initiate the taper by a small enough increment (e.g., no greater than 10% to 25% of the total daily dose) to avoid withdrawal symptoms, and proceed with dose-lowering at an interval of every 2 to 4 weeks. Patients who have been taking opioids for briefer periods of time may tolerate a more rapid taper.
    • It may be necessary to provide the patient with lower dosage strengths to accomplish a successful taper. Reassess the patient frequently to manage pain and withdrawal symptoms, should they emerge. Common withdrawal symptoms include restlessness, lacrimation, rhinorrhea, yawning, perspiration, chills, myalgia, and mydriasis. Other signs and symptoms also may develop, including irritability, anxiety, backache, joint pain, weakness, abdominal cramps, insomnia, nausea, anorexia, vomiting, diarrhea, or increased blood pressure, respiratory rate, or heart rate. If withdrawal symptoms arise, it may be necessary to pause the taper for a period of time or raise the dose of the opioid analgesic to the previous dose, and then proceed with a slower taper. In addition, monitor patients for any changes in mood, emergence of suicidal thoughts, or use of other substances.
    • When managing patients taking opioid analgesics, particularly those who have been treated for a long duration and/or with high doses for chronic pain, ensure that a multimodal approach to pain management, including mental health support (if needed), is in place prior to initiating an opioid analgesic taper. A multimodal approach to pain management may optimize the treatment of chronic pain, as well as assist with the successful tapering of the opioid analgesic [See WARNINGS; Withdrawal, DRUG ABUSE AND DEPENDENCE in package insert].
