Ask an Eye Doctor and Get an Answer ASAP
Hello, Welcome to Pearl.com
Are you available for chat?
Are you wanting to know about the side effects of this eye drops?
The dosage of this eye drops is 1 drop twice a day. I guess the dose given is right.
Is the patient also put on any other anti-glaucoma eye medicine?
Ok. Alphagan is to be used as twice a day eyedrops only.
Its side effects are minimal such as ocular side effects such as redness/itching sensation/eye discomfort.Being an alpha agonist it can get absorbed into the systemic circulation and have effect on the cardiovascular system ( very rare consequences, not seen in otherwise healthy individuals).
But the side effects would be related to the eye medicine itself and not because of excessive dosage.
