Indications

Lumigan eye drops are indicated for the reduction of elevated intraocular pressure in patients with ocular hypertension or open angle glaucoma, who are intolerant of other intraocular pressure lowering drugs or insufficiently responsive to another intraocular pressure lowering drug.

Contraindications

Lumigan eye drops are contraindicated in patients with hypersensitivity to bimatoprost or any other ingredient in Lumigan.

Pregnancy

Pregnancy Category C. In embryo/fetal developmental studies in pregnant mice and rats, abortion was observed at oral doses of Lumigan eye drops, which achieved at least 32 or 98 times, respectively, the intended human exposure based on blood AUC levels. At doses 42 times the intended human exposure based on blood AUC levels, the gestation length was reduced in the dams, the incidence of dead fetuses, late resorptions, postnatal pup mortality was increased, and pup body weights were reduced.

Nursing Mothers

It is not known whether this drug is excreted in human milk, although in animal studies, bimatoprost has been shown to be excreted in breast milk. Because many drugs are excreted in human milk, caution should be exercised when eye drops are administered to a nursing woman.
