• Should I follow my doctor's instructions or the prescription instructions for medication for pink eye?


    Question:

    I just got eye drops for pink eye. The prescription says to use them every three hours. I thought my doctor's office said three times a day when I got the prescription but the office is closed so I can't check. Can every three hours be right?


    Answer:

    Obviously, I don't have access to your doctor's medical records, but I would suggest three times a day instead of every three hours. I suggest you contact the office of your doctor to ensure your compliance with his or her advice.
