About XALACOM EYE DROPS 2.5ML

XALACOM EYE DROPS 2.5ML is a combination drug containing 'ophthalmic medication' used to treat raised pressure in the eye in conditions such as ocular hypertension and glaucoma. Ocular hypertension is a condition in which the eye's pressure is higher than normal due to poor drainage of the aqueous humour (fluid inside the eye). Glaucoma is an eye disease in which the optic nerve is damaged due to abnormally high pressure inside the eye. If this condition is left untreated, it can lead to permanent vision loss.

XALACOM EYE DROPS 2.5ML contains Latanoprost and Timolol. Latanoprost is a prostaglandin analogue and works by increasing the natural flow of fluid from inside the eye into the bloodstream.  As a result, the pressure of the eye is decreased. Timolol is a beta-blocker and works by decreasing the fluid production in the eye, thereby lowering the pressure in the eye. XALACOM EYE DROPS 2.5ML should be used only in the infected eye, and contact with the normal eye should be avoided.

You should take this medicine exactly as prescribed by the doctor. The common side-effects of XALACOM EYE DROPS 2.5ML are burning or stinging sensation, itching, irritation, and pain at the application site. These side-effects are usually mild and temporary. However, if any of these side-effects persist or get worse, inform your doctor immediately.
