Does Tobradex eye drop suspension interact with medicines and supplements?

It is unlikely that Tobradex eye drops will trigger problematic drug interactions, because very little of the medication is absorbed into the bloodstream.  However, as with any medicine, there is a chance that Tobradex may interact with some other medications. Be sure to tell your doctor about any medicines you take, including prescription drugs, over-the-counter products, vitamins, herbs and supplements. In particular, tell your doctor if you are taking any other steroid medications, such as prednisone. You should let your doctor know if you are taking any other eye drops or eye medicines, especially antibiotics, to avoid possible interactions. Symptoms of side effects include eye irritation, such as burning, stinging and itching. If you are taking other antibiotic medications by mouth, or by any other route, also tell your doctor to avoid getting too much of the medication.
