Overview

INTRODUCTION

Azopt Opthalmic Suspension is a medicine used to reduce increased pressure in the eye, in people with glaucoma or ocular hypertension(high pressure in the eye). If the pressure in your eye is too high it can damage your sight. Azopt Opthalmic Suspension works by decreasing the amount of fluid inside the eye.

Never use Azopt Opthalmic Suspension if the seal is broken before you use it for the first time. Wash your hands before using it and shake the bottle well before each use. If you wear contact lenses, make sure you remove them before instilling and wait for at least 15 minutes before putting them back. Do not stop using this medicine without asking your doctor. Otherwise, the pressure in your eye will not be controlled and this could damage your sight.

The most common side effects are blurred vision and bitter taste in your mouth. Sometimes people experience more general effects such as shortness of breath, dizziness, tiredness, or heart palpitations. If your vision is blurred or you have other changes in sight for a time, do not drive until your vision is clear.

Do not use this medicine if you have severe kidney problems or are allergic to medicines called sulphonamides. Talk to your doctor before taking it if you have liver problems, dry eyes, or cornea problems. This medicine is not recommended for women who are pregnant or breastfeeding. Do not use other eye medications unless your doctor tells you to.
