Xiidra Ophthalmic (Lifitegrast)

Xiidra (lifitegrast) works by blocking a certain protein on the surface of cells in your body. This protein can cause your eyes to not produce enough tears, or to produce tears that are not the correct consistency to keep your eyes healthy.

These eye drops are used to treat symptoms of dry eye disease.

Xiidra may also be used for purposes not listed in this medication guide.

How To Use Xiidra (lifitegrast)

Use Xiidra exactly as directed by your health care provider. Follow all directions on your prescription label. Do not use this medicine in larger or smaller amounts or for longer than recommended.

Xiidra is usually given as one drop in each eye twice per day (every 12 hours). Follow your doctor’s dosing instructions.

Wash your hands before using the eye drops.

Do not use Xiidra eye drops while wearing contact lenses. Wait at least 15 minutes after using this medicine before putting in your contact lenses.

To apply the Xiidra eye drops:

  • Tilt your head back slightly and pull down your lower eyelid to create a small pocket. Hold the dropper above the eye with the tip down. Look up and away from the dropper and squeeze out a drop.
  • Close your eyes for 2 or 3 minutes with your head tipped down, without blinking or squinting. Gently press your finger to the inside corner of the eye for about 1 minute, to keep the liquid from draining into your tear duct.
  • Use only the number of drops your doctor has prescribed. If you use more than one drop, wait about 5 minutes between drops.
  • Wait at least 10 minutes before using any other eye drops your doctor has prescribed.

Do not touch the tip of the Xiidra eye dropper or place it directly on your eye. A contaminated dropper can infect your eye, which could lead to serious vision problems.

Each single-use eye drop container is for only one use in both eyes. Throw away after one use, even if there is still some medicine left in it after using the eye drops

If You Miss A Dose

If You Overdose

An overdose of Xiidra is not expected to be dangerous. Seek emergency medical attention, if anyone has accidentally swallowed the medication
