AZOPT EYE DROPS SUSPENSION 10MG/ML
AZOPT contains brinzolamide which belongs to a group of medicines called carbonic anhydrase inhibitors. It reduces pressure within the eye. AZOPT eye drops are used to treat high pressure in the eye. This pressure can lead to an illness called glaucoma.
Do not use AZOPT
- if you have severe kidney problems.
- if you are allergic to brinzolamide or any of the other ingredients of this medicine
- if you are allergic to medicines called sulphonamides. Examples include medicines used to treat
diabetes and infections and also diuretics (water tablets). AZOPT may cause the same allergy.
- if you have too much acidity in your blood (a condition called hyperchloraemic acidosis).
If you have further questions, ask your doctor for advice.
Warnings and precautions
Talk to your doctor or pharmacist before using AZOPT:
- if you have kidney or liver problems.
- if you have dry eyes or cornea problems.
- if you are taking other sulphonamide medicines
- if you have a specific form of glaucoma in which the pressure inside the eye rises due to deposits that block fluid draining out (pseudoexfoliative glaucoma or pigmentary glaucoma) or a specific form of glaucoma in which the pressure inside the eye (sometimes rapidly) rises because the eye bulges forward and blocks fluid draining out (narrow-angle glaucoma)
Children and adolescents
AZOPT is not to be used by infants, children or adolescents under 18 years of age unless advised by your doctor.
Other medicines and AZOPT
Tell your doctor or pharmacist if you are taking, have recently taken or might take any other medicines, including medicines obtained without a prescription.
Pregnancy and breast-feeding
If you are pregnant or breast-feeding, think you may be pregnant or are planning to have a baby, ask your doctor or pharmacist for advice before using this medicine.
Women who may become pregnant are advised to use effective contraception during AZOPT treatment. The use of AZOPT is not recommended during pregnancy or breast-feeding. Do not use AZOPT unless clearly indicated by your doctor. Ask your doctor or pharmacist for advice before taking any medicine.
Driving and using machines
Do not drive or use machines until your vision is clear. You may find that your vision is blurred for a time just after using AZOPT.
AZOPT may impair the ability to perform tasks requiring mental alertness and/or physical coordination. If affected, take care when driving or using machines.
AZOPT contains benzalkonium chloride.
This medicine contains 3.35 μg benzalkonium chloride per drop (= 1 dose) which is equivalent to 0.01% or 0.1 mg/ml. AZOPT contains a preservative (benzalkonium chloride) which may be absorbed by soft contact lenses and may change the colour of the contact lenses. You should remove contact lenses before using this medicine and put them back 15 minutes afterwards. Benzalkonium chloride may also cause eye irritation, especially if you have dry eyes or disorders of the cornea (the clear layer at the front of the eye). If you feel abnormal eye sensation, stinging or pain in the eye after using this medicine, talk to your doctor.
How to use AZOPT
Always use this medicine exactly as your doctor or pharmacist has told you. Check with your doctor or pharmacist if you are not sure. Only use AZOPT for your eyes. Do not swallow or inject. The recommended dose is
1 drop in the affected eye or eyes twice a day - morning and night. Use this much unless your doctor told you to do something different. Only use AZOPT in both eyes if your doctor told you to. Take it for as long as your doctor told you to.
