How to take the Medicine
Consumption Info •If the strip of PILOCARPINE HYDROCHLORIDE does not remain in your eye, then repeat the dose.
Drug quanitty •Wash your hands before you start. •Remove the cap from the tube. •Tilt your head back. •Pull down your lower eyelid with a finger, until there is a 'pocket' between the eyelid and your eye. The ointment will go in here. •Bring the ointment tube close to the eye. Do this in front of a mirror if it helps. •Do not touch your eye or eyelid, surrounding areas or other surfaces with the tip of the tube. It could infect the ointment. •Gently squeeze a small ribbon of ointment into the pocket formed between your lower eyelid and your eye. •Release the lower eyelid and blink a few times. •If you use ointment in both eyes, repeat the steps for your other eye. Replace and tightly close the cap on the tube.
Drug Dose The usual dose is to put a 1 to 1.5 cm (1/2 inch) strip of PILOCARPINE HYDROCHLORIDE into the lower eyelid of your affected eye(s) once each day at bedtime Always use PILOCARPINE HYDROCHLORIDE exactly as your doctor has told you. You should check with your doctor or pharmacist if you are not sure.
Excess Drug Consumption •If you use more PILOCARPINE HYDROCHLORIDE than you should, it can be washed out with cool water.
Forgot Drug Consumption •If you forget to use PILOCARPINE HYDROCHLORIDE, do not worry, just use it as soon as possible. Do not use a double dose to make up.
