Timolol

COMPOSITION:

Each ml contains:
Timolol  BP 5mg

Indication:

  Timitol Ophthalmic Solution is indicated in the treatment of elevated intraocular
pressure in patients with ocular hypertension or open-angle glaucoma.

Dosage and Administration:

TIMITOL Ophthalmic Solution is available in concentrations of 0.25% and  0.5%. The usual starting dose is one drop of 0.5% TIMITOL in the affected eye(s) twice a day. If the clinical response is not adequate, the dosage may be changed to one drop of 0.5% solution in the affected eye(s) twice a day.    Since in some patients the pressure-lowering response to TIMITOL may require a few weeks to stabilize, evaluation should include a determination of intraocular pressure after approximately 4 weeks of treatment with TIMITOL.
If the intraocular pressure is maintained at satisfactory levels, the dosage schedule may be changed to one drop once a day in the affected eye(s). Because of diurnal variations in intraocular pressure, satisfactory response to the once-a-day dose is best determined by measuring the intraocular pressure at different times during the day.
Dosages above one drop of 0.5% TIMITOL twice a day generally have not been shown to produce further reduction in intraocular pressure. If the patient's intraocular pressure is still not at a satisfactory level on this regimen, concomitant therapy with other agent(s) for lowering intraocular pressure can be instituted. The concomitant use of two topical beta-adrenergic blocking agents is not recommended.
