DORZOLAMIDE + TIMOLOL
This Eye Drops is indicated for the treatment of elevated intraocular pressure in patients with open angle glaucoma or ocular hypertension who are insufficiently responsive to topical beta blockers.
Drugs for miotics and glaucoma
Dorzolamide, a carbonic anhydrase inhibitor, has actions similar to acetazolamide. By inhibiting carbonic anhydrase in the ciliary processes of the eye, dorzolamide decreases aqueous humor secretion. Used together, there is additional intraocular pressure reduction compared to using either component alone, but the reduction is not as much as concomitant admin of dorzolamide tid and timolol bid. Timolol maleate, a nonselective 8-adrenergic blocker, reduces aqueous humor formation.
Instill one drop in the conjunctival sac of the affected eye(s) twice daily.
Additive hypotension and bradycardia with oral calcium channel blockers, catecholamine-depleting drugs or 8-blockers, antiarrhythmics (e.g. amiodarone), digitalis glycosides, parasympathomimetics, narcotics and MAOIs. Additive systemic side effects with oral carbonic anhydrase or 8-blockers; avoid concurrent use. Additive systemic 8-blockade with CYP2D6 inhibitors (e.g. quinidine, SSRIs) and timolol.
