HOW TO USE TIMOLOL
Always use Timolol exactly as your doctor has told you. You should check with your doctor or pharmacist if you are not sure.
The usual starting dose is one drop of 0.25% eye drops into each affected eye(s) twice daily, approximately 12 hours apart. Your doctor will change your treatment as necessary. If you are using in combination with another eye drop medicine, wait 5-15 minutes before applying the second eye drop.
A detailed medical examination should precede the use of Timolol. Your doctor will carefully evaluate the risks and benefits when considering treatment with Timolol. If the benefits outweigh the risks, it is recommended to use the lowest active agent concentration available once daily. With regard to “the use in children”, the 0, 1% active agent concentration may be sufficient to control pressure within the eye. If the pressure is not sufficiently controlled with this dosage, a twice daily application at 12-hourly intervals may be necessary. Patients, especially newborn, should be closely observed for one to two hours after the first dose and careful monitoring for adverse events should be carried out until surgery is performed.
