Latanoprost is specifically formulated for ophthalmic use and is available as eye drops. It works by mimicking the body’s prostaglandins, naturally occurring chemicals that, among other physiological effects, help relieve eye pressure. Latanoprost facilitates fluid drainage (aqueous humor) out of the eye, thereby lowering IOP.

Description

Latanoprost is an ophthalmic medication categorized as a prostaglandin analogue, widely prescribed for the treatment of conditions like open-angle glaucoma and ocular hypertension. It helps to increase the outflow of aqueous humor from the eyes, effectively lowering intraocular pressure (IOP). This reduction in pressure can help prevent damage to the optic nerve, averting the progression of glaucoma and potential vision loss.

Additional information

Usage

Indications:

● Primary treatment for reducing elevated intraocular pressure in patients with open-angle glaucoma or ocular hypertension.

Patients should:

● Apply drops as prescribed, typically once a day in the affected eye(s).

● The usual prescribed dosage is one drop in the affected eye(s) once daily in the evening.

Precautions:

● Not advised for patients who are hypersensitive to latanoprost or any other ingredients in the drops.
● Caution in patients with active intraocular inflammation (e.g., uveitis) because it may be exacerbated.
● Regular monitoring of intraocular pressure is recommended during treatment.

Drug Interactions:

● There may be an additive effect when used with other intraocular pressure-lowering medications.
● The concomitant use of two or more prostaglandins, prostaglandin analogs, or prostaglandin derivatives is not recommended.

Storage

Special Precautions

● Notify healthcare providers of comprehensive medical history, including any eye-related issues.
