 5  allergic conjunctivitis none I was allergic to the brand of contact lenses I was wearing and was not allowed to wear them for a week during my treatment. I was prescribed Tobradex to get rid of the itching, redness, and swelling. My eyes feel much better now, and I have changed my brand of contact lenses. F 21 10 days
 5  Outer Ear Infection Ringing in ears but I did not know if it was due to drug or infection. When doctor gave it to me he told me it was made for eyes but to use it in my ears? After my swelling went down in canals and I got a full dose inside it felt like it affected my lungs in some way? I couls also taste it for a few hours. Yuck! Also made my eustachian tubes burn and sting allday, everyday. It helped clear my ears up so as far as I am concerned it is a good drug. I guess I would use it again :) F 41 10 days
