Cortisporin ophthalmic suspension discontinued

King Pharmaceuticals has notified the FDA that it will stop manufacturing Cortisporin ophthalmic suspension (neomycin/polymyxin B sulfates/hydrocortisone). Many factors, including the company's understanding of current medical therapy and the availability of alternative therapies, played a role in the decision to discontinue this product.

Cortisporin ophthalmic suspension is indicated for steroid-responsive ocular inflammation associated with bacterial infection.
