Where to buy Timpilo ?
This type of medical product is a combination remedy which contains 2 different drugs: Pilocarpine and Timolol. Timolol is one of the most effective beta-blocker on the market (in other words, the use of Timpilo reduces the patient's production of fluid; in this case we refer to the intra-ocular fluid), while Pilocarpine is a parasympathomimetic medical agent which is able to allow the intra-ocular fluid flow much better - in some cases, the use of this type of medication can also reduce the patient's production of eye fluid. This combination of drugs makes Timpilo highly effective in the reduction of the patient's intra-ocular pressure. This medical remedy is generally purchased under the form of medical eye drops.
Timpilo is widely indicated as the drug of choice in the therapy against intra-ocular hypertension and also in that against glaucoma. The use of this medical combination can also be indicated as an alternative therapy trial, in case the patient's treatment with simple Pilocarpine / Timolol was not considered effective. However, you should always keep in mind that your main medical prescriber may have advised you to start using this type of medical remedy in order to help you deal with another medical condition which has not been mentioned in this chapter of our presentation. If you have any questions concerning your therapy course with Timpilo you should discuss them with your main clinical prescriber.
Although this type of clinical combination is highly popular as it has been successfully indicated to numerous individuals from all over the world, you should know that not any patient is allowed to start using Timpilo on a regular basis. This is due to the fact that the presence of certain medical ailments impairs the patient's ability to start using Timpilo; among the most common disorders that may prevent a certain individual from being allowed to use Timpilo are: allergy to Timpilo, bronchospasm (this includes the presence of bronchial asthma), heart disease (heart block, cardiogenic shock, congestive heart failure), any clinical disorder in which the presence of excessive miosis has to be avoided (the main diseases that fit this clinical category include: glaucoma, acute inflammatory eye medical conditions, and so on).
Keep your medicine's dropper uncontaminated - this is vital in order to avoid the developing of unwanted complications during your therapy course (eye infections). Seek further intake guidelines in the professional leaflet that accompanies a pack of Timpilo. If you have any questions, address your local pharmacist or your PD. Remove your contact lenses (if you wear any) before you apply this type of eye medication. You may re-insert them after 30 minutes.
In most cases, the starting dose of one's therapy course with Timpilo consists of a single drop of Timpilo (in its 2% concentration form), which should be applied twice per day. In case the patient's response to this type of therapy is a beneficial one, he or she may be advised to start using a more concentrated form of Timpilo (4%) - 2 daily doses of 1 drop. Your main prescriber may choose to change your indicated dose of Timpilo at any time during your therapy course with Timpilo.
As Timpilo's ingredients can be absorbed in the patient's bloodstream, over-dosage with Timpilo can lead to the developing of severe complications. Seek your prescriber's advice concerning how you should manage such a medical condition - the safest way is to go to the nearest emergency center, as in this way you will be granted the needed medical support for your medical condition.
There is no universal way in which a patient can repair the damage that a missed dose of Timpilo can produce. This damage mainly refers to delays of the expected beneficial results of your treatment trial with this eye remedy. Seek your PD's professional expertise in case a missed dose of Timpilo occurs.
You should know that the use of numerous clinical remedies (including Timpilo) can lead to the developing of several unpleasant adverse manifestations. You should know that the side effects that can occur under the given circumstances (during your therapy course with Timpilo) can be permanent or temporary, severe or mild. If you become excessively concerned about your developed adverse reactions, contact your main medical provider. If you develop these bothersome / severe clinical reactions you should immediately refer to your medical prescriber (you can also seek information concerning this matter at your local pharmacy): stinging or burning in your eyes when applying Timpilo, changes in your far / near vision, decrease in your regular night vision, etc. Other less common reactions like sour stomach, acid stomach, belching, constipation, dry skin, indigestion, increased eye sensitivity to direct light, and so on, have also been associated (in rarer cases) with the patient's intake of Timpilo. More common side effects include eye redness.
You should know that your therapy course with Timpilo can be affected by the use of other clinical remedies; in other words, this medical combination can harmfully interact with other medical products, especially with the following drugs: other beta-blocker remedies, calcium channel blockers, epinephrine, clonidine, insulin, ergot alkaloids, Metformin, Quinidine, Prazosin, and so on. You should employ extra care if you are considering undergoing such a combination therapy. We strongly suggest you to seek your main medical prescriber's opinion concerning this matter. Avoid purchasing any other drugs during your therapy with Timpilo without consulting your PD first.
