If you wear soft contact lenses, you must remove them prior to using Bepreve. Dosing guidelines call for one drop to be applied to each affected eye, twice daily. In addition, both adults and children take the same amount -- the dosage is not affected by things like age and weight.
An Introduction to Dosing With BepreveThere is only one standard recommended dose of Bepreve™ (bepotastine besilate), regardless of your weight, age, or the severity of your allergies. As is always the case, do not adjust this amount unless your healthcare provider specifically tells you to do so.
Bepreve Dose for Eye AllergiesThe recommended Bepreve dosage for treating eye allergy symptoms in adults and children age two and older is one drop in the affected eye(s) twice a day.
General Information on Your Dosage of BepreveConsiderations to keep in mind when taking Bepreve include the following:
- This medication comes in the form of an eye drop. It is usually used in each eye twice a day.
- In order to prevent contamination of the drops, do not touch the tip of the dropper to any surface, including the surface of the eye.
- If you wear soft contact lenses, you must remove them to use Bepreve. In order to prevent the lens from absorbing the medication, be sure to wait 10 minutes after using the drops before reinserting the lens. Do not wear your contact lenses if your eye is still red.
- For this medicine to work properly, it must be taken as directed.
- If you are unsure about anything related to your dosage or Bepreve dosing in general, talk with your doctor, nurse, or pharmacist.
