This combination medication is used to treat high pressure inside the eye due to glaucoma (open-angle type) or other eye diseases (e.g.,
ocular hypertension). Lowering high pressure inside the eye helps to
prevent blindness. This product contains brimonidine and timolol. These
medications are used together when 1 drug is not controlling the
pressure inside the eye. Brimonidine works by allowing better fluid
drainage from within the eye and also by decreasing the amount of fluid
formed in the eye. It belongs to a class of drugs known as alpha
agonists. Timolol is thought to work by decreasing the amount of fluid
formed in the eye. Timolol belongs to a class of drugs known as beta
blockers.wisepoqder ß-agonist Powder

This medication is not recommended for use in children less than 2 years old due to an increased risk of serious side effects. Ask the
doctor or pharmacist for more details.


How to use Brimonidine-Timolol Drops

This medication may come with a Patient Information Leaflet. Read the Patient Information Leaflet provided by your pharmacist before you
start using this product and each time you get a refill. If you have any
questions, consult your doctor or pharmacist.


To apply eye drops, wash your hands first. To avoid contamination, do not touch the dropper tip or let it touch your eye or any other
surface.


The preservative in this product may be absorbed by contact lenses. If you wear contact lenses, remove them before using the eye drops. Wait
at least 15 minutes after using this medication before putting in your
contact lenses.


Tilt your head back, look up, and pull down the lower eyelid to make a pouch. Hold the dropper directly over your eye and place 1 drop in
the pouch, usually 2 times daily (12 hours apart) or as directed by your
doctor. Look down and gently close your eyes for 1 to 2 minutes. Place
one finger at the corner of your eye (near the nose) and apply gentle
pressure. This will prevent the medication from draining away from the
eye. Try not to blink and do not rub your eye. Repeat these steps for
your other eye if so directed.


Do not rinse the dropper. Replace the dropper cap after each use.

If you are using another kind of eye medication (e.g., drops or ointments), wait at least 10 minutes before applying other medications.
Use eye drops before eye ointments to allow the eye drops to enter the
eye.


Use this medication regularly in order to get the most benefit from it. To help you remember, use it at the same times each day. It is
important to continue using this medication even if you feel well. Most
people with glaucoma or high pressure in the eyes do not feel sick.
