General Info

Description

Alphagan® eye drops are manufactured by Allergan. The active substance comprised in this medication is Brimonidine, an alpha adrenergic agonist and ocular hypotensive agent.

Indications:

- elevated intraocular pressure (IOP) due to open-angle glaucoma (also known as chronic glaucoma);

- elevated intraocular pressure (IOP) due to other eye conditions (eye trauma, pseudoexfoliation syndrome, pigment dispersion syndrome and corneal arcus).

MOA (mechanism of action):

Brimonidine is a selective alpha2-agonist and potent hypotensive agent that does not cause mydriasis (dilation of the pupil of the eye). It decreases intraocular pressure reducing aqueous humor synthesis and promoting uveoscleral aqueous humor outflow. In a gel formulation, Brimonidine can reduce erythema due to its vasoconstrictive properties.

Dosage

For increased IOP in patients with open-angle glaucoma or ocular hypertension

Adults: instill 1 drop (Brimonidine 0,2%, 0,1%, or 0,15% ophthalmic solution) in the treated eye(s) 3 times daily, at 8-hour interval.

Children over 2 years: instill 1 drop of Brimonidine 0,2% ophthalmic solution in the treated eye(s) 3 times daily, at 8-hour interval.

Brimonidine may be used concomitantly with other ophthalmic medications for lowering IOP. Administer each ophthalmic medication at 10-minute interval.

Precautions

Alphagan® eye drops are not intended for use in children under 2 years of age.

Alphagan® solution is for topical ophthalmic use only, not for injection.

Missing a dose
