Special warnings

Chloramphenicol can be systemically absorbed from mucous membranes, causing systemic effects. The possibility of bone marrow hypoplasia, including aplastic anemia with fatal outcome after topical application of chloramphenicol, has been described. Such cases are rare and here it is necessary to assess the risk and feasibility of chloramphenicol. In both short-term and long-term use of chloramphenicol eye drops, it may be advisable to monitor the blood picture before therapy and at appropriate intervals, for possible abnormalities in the hematopoietic system. In severe infections, local application of chloramphenicol is supplemented by appropriate systemic therapy.

Prolonged use of chloramphenicol eye drops should be avoided because it can lead to sensitization and emergence of resistant microorganisms. If any new infectious factor appears, treatment with this antibiotic must be discontinued and appropriate measures must be taken. Chloramphenicol should be relegated to the category of reserve drugs for the treatment of sensitive microorganisms.

Chloramphenicol is not sufficiently active against Pseudomonas aeruginosa and Enterobacteriaceae Serratia marcescens.
