Drug Description:

This medicine is used for the reduction of intra-ocular pressure (eye pressure) in glaucoma.Prior to mixing solutions, avoid temperatures above 30C. After mixing, this medicine is stable for 28 days when stored at room temperature.

If you have any questions about the amount and/or frequency of the medicine you are taking, talk with your health care provider. There have been reports of inadvertent overdosage with Timoptic resulting in systemic effects similar to those seen with systemic beta-adrenergic blocking agents such as dizziness, headache, shortness of breath, bradycardia, bronchospasm, and cardiac arrest. The following therapeutic measures should be considered: 1) Gastric lavage: If ingested. 2) Symptomatic bradycardia: Use atropine sulfate i.v. in a dosage of 0.25 to 2 mg to induce vagal blockade. If bradycardia persists, i.v. isoproterenol HCl should be administered cautiously. In refractory cases the use of a transvenous cardiac pacemaker may be considered. 3) Hypotension: Use sympathomimetic pressor drug therapy, such as dopamine, dobutamine or norepinephrine. In refractory cases the use of glucagon HCl has been reported to be useful. 4) Bronchospasm: Use isoproterenol HCl. Additional therapy with aminophylline may be considered. 5) Acute cardiac failure: Conventional therapy with digitalis, diuretics and oxygen should be instituted immediately. In refractory cases the use of i.v. aminophylline is suggested. This may be followed if necessary by glucagon HCl which has been reported to be useful. 6) Heart block (second-or-third degree): Use isoproterenol HCl or a transvenous cardiac pacemaker. If accidentally swallowed, pilocarpine is readily absorbed from the alimentary tract, and if a large amount is ingested cholinergic symptoms may appear, including salivation, lacrimation, nausea, vomiting, headache, mental confusion, visual disturbances, abdominal colic, diarrhea, bronchospasm and hypotension. Dehydration and shock may develop. Respiratory depression has been reported in severe cases of pilocarpine poisoning.
