Pediatric and Off-Label Indications for Alrex
Alrex is not approved for use in children, as it has not been adequately studied in this age group.
On occasion, your healthcare provider may recommend Alrex for something other than eye allergies (this would be known as an "off-label" use). At this time, however, there are no universally accepted off-label uses for Alrex. Although steroids can be used to treat a number of other eye conditions, the active ingredient in Alrex (loteprednol) is available in a higher strength (Lotemax®) that is approved for various other uses.
