Combigan (generic name: Brimonidine/Timolol) is an ophthalmic solution (eye drops).
Combigan is an eye medication that is proven to lower elevated intraocular pressure (IOP) in patients with glaucoma who require additional or adjunctive IOP-lowering therapy. Abnormally high IOP is the only risk factor that can be treated to prevent glaucomatous vision loss.
Combigan is specifically prescribed to lower pressure in the eyes of people with primary open-angle glaucoma or ocular hypertension (both conditions involve elevated pressure in the eye).
Combigan eye drops lower the pressure in the eye by decreasing the fluid produced and helping the flow of fluid out of the eye chamber.
Follow the directions for using this medicine provided by your doctor. Use Combigan exactly as directed.
The usual dose of Combigan eye drops is one drop in the affected eye(s) twice daily, approximately 12 hours apart.
Use Combigan eye drops every day, at about the same time each day, unless your doctor tells you otherwise. Using your eye drops at the same time each day will have the best effect on your eye pressure. It will also help you remember when to use the eye drops.
If you are using more than one eye drop product, wait 5 to 10 minutes before using the second product.
If you are being changed from one eye drop to another, follow your doctor's instructions carefully as to when to stop the old drops and when to start the new drops.
If you are wearing soft contact lenses, remove them before putting the drops in your eye.
Tell your doctor before using Combigan, if:
you are allergic to any medicines;
you have any serious medical conditions;
you are pregnant or breast-feeding.
Active ingredients: brimonidine tartrate and timolol.
