Buy Xalatan brand or generic Latanoprost prescription drug from Canada
Why is Xalatan prescribed?
Xalatan, with the generic name Latanoprost, is an ophthalmic solution used to manage symptoms of glaucoma. Glaucoma is a condition that causes increased pressure in the eye (ocular hypertension) that causes loss of vision.
What does it do?
Latanoprost belongs to a class of medications called Prostaglandin Analogs which increases the flow of eye fluids out of the eye to lower the pressure within the eye.
How should I use it?
Xalatan is currently available as a 0.005% ophthalmic solution instilled in the eye. Xalatan only helps control symptoms of glaucoma and does not cure it. Do not discontinue using this medication unless told otherwise by your physician.
The dosage strength and frequency depend on every patient’s condition and the doctor’s prescription. It is imperative that you do not self-medicate and only take this drug after consulting with your doctor or pharmacist to determine the best dosage and dosing schedule for the treatment of your condition.
What if I missed a dose?
The desired effects of prescribed medications will only be achieved if taken properly. As much as possible, strictly follow your doctor’s prescribed dosing schedule. However, if you miss a dose, take it immediately and adjust the time of your next dose depending on your doctor’s advice. Never take two doses at the same time just to make up for your missed dose.
What are the special precautions before taking Xalatan?
In case you are wearing contact lenses, remove them before instilling Xalatan and wait 15 minutes before replacing your lenses.
Inform your doctor about all the medications you are taking. Discuss your current and previous medical history and any allergic reactions to Xalatan, or any other ingredients included in the manufacture of this medication.
Inform your doctor if you had any form of surgery or if you are planning to get one.
