What are the side effects of Maxitrol?

Maxitrol (neomycin-polymyxin B-dexamethasone) should cause only minor side effects. You may experience some itching or swelling of the eyelid, blurry vision or light sensitivity. Irritation, redness, burning or stinging also may occur. Contact your doctor if they become unmanageable. If you experience new eye problems while taking Maxitrol, such as discharge, eye pain or vision changes or if your symptoms are getting worse, tell your doctor right away. It is unlikely, but if you have any signs of a severe allergic reaction such as difficulty breathing, hives or swelling in the face, mouth, throat or tongue, get immediate medical help.
