• Can I take Vigamoxi beyond its seven-day course?


    Question:

    I have coronavirus and my only symptoms are moderate headache for a few days and then pink eye. I’ve used Vigamoxi for seven days and it’s not quite 100%. Can I use Vigamoxi for a few more days?


    Answer:

    Vigamox or Vigamoxi (brand name in other countries) is a treatment for the bacterial form of pink eye (conjunctivitis). It has no effect on viral conjunctivitis. If you have coronavirus then you have viral conjunctivitis. It typically runs its course in two to three weeks. I would use OTC artificial tears and refrigerate. You can place the cold artificial tears to help with the symptoms of discomfort, but you really don’t need the Vigamoxi anymore.
