What should I know about Alocril before taking it?

Alocril should not be used by children younger than three years of age. Do not wear contact lenses while using Alocril unless given permission by your doctor. Be careful to keep the eye dropper clean; the solution is sterile but can become contaminated if the dropper touches anything, including skin. Tell your doctor if you have any type of eye infection because the infection must be treated while you use Alocril. Under pregnancy Category B, Alocril is not known to have adverse effects on developing fetuses. Still, tell your doctor if you are pregnant before taking Alocril. It is not known if Alocril is transferred to babies through breast milk, so talk to your doctor before taking Alocril while breastfeeding.
