- 0.004% - travoprost ophthalmic solution;

Indications

Travatan eye drops are indicated for the reduction of elevated intraocular pressure in patients with open-angle glaucoma or ocular hypertension who are intolerant of other intraocular pressure lowering medications or insufficiently responsive to another intraocular pressure lowering medication.

Contraindications

Travatan eye drops are contraindicated in patients with hypersensitivity to travoprost, benzalkonium chloride or any other ingredients in Travatan eye drops.

Pregnancy

Travatan eye drops was teratogenic in rats, at an intravenous (IV) dose up to 10 mg/kg/day (250 times the MRHOD), evidenced by an increase in the incidence of skeletal malformations as well as external and visceral malformations, such as fused sternebrae, domed head and hydrocephaly. Travoprost was not teratogenic in rats at IV doses up to 3 mg/kg/day (75 times the MRHOD), and in mice at subcutaneous doses up to 1.0 mg/kg/day (25 times the MRHOD).

Nursing Mothers

A study in lactating rats demonstrated that radiolabeled travoprost and/or its metabolites were excreted in milk. Travatan eye drops are not known whether this drug or its metabolites are excreted in human milk. Because many drugs are excreted in human milk, caution should be exercised when Travatan eye drops are administered to a nursing woman.
