Preservative-free TIMOPTIC in OCUDOSE is used to treat high intraocular (eye) pressure in patients with ocular hypertension or open-angle glaucoma. It may be used for patients who are sensitive to the preservative in Timoptic (benzalkonium chloride), or if use of a preservative-free eye medication is advisable for any reason.
IMPORTANT SAFETY INFORMATION
TIMOPTIC should not be used by patients with:
- Asthma, or a history of asthma
- Severe chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, a lung disease commonly known as COPD
- Sinus bradycardia (an unusually slow heartbeat)
- Severe atrioventricular block (a heart condition that causes sudden bouts of unconsciousness)
- Heart failure or reduced heart function
- Allergy to any component of the product
This drug is called a beta-adrenergic blocking agent, or beta blocker. Although it is an eye drop, it enters your bloodstream like beta blockers taken orally (by mouth) do. The same side effects seen with oral beta blockers have also been reported with the use of Timoptic eye drops. These include severe lung or heart reactions, including death.
Be sure to tell your doctor that you are using Timoptic if you are going to have surgery. Tell your eye care professional about any health conditions you may have, and use Timoptic as directed.
The most frequently reported side effects (seen in about 1 out of 8 patients) have been burning and stinging while putting the drops in the eyes.
