Oxyal

Indications

Oxyal is a very effective remedy for several unpleasant eye conditions. Here is a list of the most common ingredients that can be found in a dose of Oxyal: boric acid, sodium chloride, ProtectorTM, potassium chloride, purified water, OxydTM, magnesium chloride hexahydrate, a special sodium salt of the hyaluronic acid, and so on. The main component of Oxyal is sodium hyaluronate, a substance that mimics the characteristics of the synovial fluid (a substance that naturally occurs in the human organism, surrounding the joints, acting as a shock absorber and as a lubricant).
Oxyal has been especially designed to effectively reduce the symptoms of eye dryness, acting as an eye lubricant. The ability to lubricate the patient's eye is enhanced by the ingredients of Oxyal, especially by a special polymer, the ProtectorTM. If you are suffering from eye dryness, or from any other form of eye medical condition and you think that you would benefit from a therapy course with Oxyal you should refer to your PD. He or she is the only one entitled and able to determine whether a treatment with Oxyal is the adequate solution in your case.

Contraindications

As with most other medical products, the use of Oxyal is not recommended in all clinical cases. For example, patients who are suffering from an allergy to any of the ingredients of Oxyal are to seek an alternative therapeutic routine for their eye condition. Such individuals should not limit their knowledge to the short list of ingredients that we have provided you with in our first chapter. They should contact their pharmacist and ask him or her to provide them with further professional information concerning this matter. The safety associated with the use of Oxyal during pregnancy is a debatable matter. For this reason, pregnant females should avoid, as much as possible, a therapy course with Oxyal, especially during the first two semesters of pregnancy. A gynecologist can give you further information about the complications that may arise due to such a treatment course. Although this type of medical risk is diminished in the case of nursing females, the ingredients of Oxyal may be absorbed into the mother's bloodstream, and may pass later on into her breast milk. Discontinue nursing your infant during your treatment course with this eye lubricant and for a short period of time after you have ceased using this type of drug (in order to make sure that the ingredients of Oxyal have been excreted from your system).

Intake Guidelines

Most of the components of Oxyal are naturally found in the lacrimal fluid; this means that the administration of Oxyal does not irritate the mucous membrane of the eye. After you have broken the vial's seal, you should employ the product during the following 60 days. Patients who use contact lenses (of any type) should not be worried whether Oxyal is adequate for them when using their doses of Oxyal. However, they should remove their contacts when they apply the medication. The product is bound to come along with a professional medical guide-book. You should consult the label of the medication in order to make sure that you are well familiar with all the steps of the administration routine. As with most drugs that come in the form of eye drops, it is imperative to maintain the Oxyal dropper sterile. This means that you must not allow the dropper to come in direct contact with contaminated surfaces (this includes furniture, hands, eyes, and so on).

Dosage

The correct dose of Oxyal depends from one individual to another, as it is strongly related to the diagnostic of the patient's condition, to the age, sex, general health status of the individual, and so on. In other words, the appreciation of the correct dosing routine should be performed only by a well trained eye medical professional. The average dosing schedule that is indicated in most cases implies the administration of 1-2 drops of Oxyal in the affected eye(s).

Overdose

The administration of extra amounts of Oxyal can lead to over-dosage with Oxyal. This is not a common condition, and thus, we have little information concerning its regular symptoms. Any patient who suspects to be suffering from such a disorder should seek emergency medical help.

Missed Dose

Not many patients have to worry about missed doses of Oxyal, as Oxyal is mainly employed when needed, and only a small number of individuals actually follow a strict dosing routine with it. If you are on a dosing schedule with this eye lubricant, you should ask your PD to give you specific indications concerning the adequate way in which such a situation can be handled.

Side Effects

Several adverse manifestations are related with the administration of Oxyal. If you experience any of the symptoms of an allergic reaction during your therapy course with Oxyal you should immediately discontinue your treatment course and alert your medical provider. Other eye-related symptoms have also been reported by patients who were being treated with Oxyal.

Interactions

Combining the use of this eye lubricant with other eye remedies is not recommended, as severe medical interactions can occur. Only a well trained eye medical professional is allowed to prescribe such a complex therapeutic approach for a certain ailment. Ask your PD if it is safe to employ other medical products during your treatment with Oxyal.
