S SENSORY ORGANS

A formulation approved both for use in the eye/ear is classified in S03, while formulations only licensed for use in the eye or the ear are classified in S01 and S02, respectively.


S01 OPHTHALMOLOGICALS

Most of the drugs in this group are topical preparations. Systemic preparations with clear ophthalmological indications are also classified in this group.

Small amounts of antiseptics in eye preparations do not influence the classification, e.g. benzalconium.

See also S03 - Ophthalmological and otological preparations.

This group comprises all eye preparations, which contain corticosteroids or non-steroidal antiinflammatory agents and antiinfectives. Preparations may also contain additional drugs.
