About Latanoprost

Latanoprost belongs to the group of medicines known as prostaglandin analogs. It works by increasing the natural outflow of fluid from inside the eye into the bloodstream. It is used to control the progression of glaucoma, as it has the property of decreasing intraocular pressure by causing an increase in the outflow of aqueous humor that circulates in the anterior portion of the eye. Increased intraocular pressure or ocular hypertension is the main risk factor involved in glaucoma, a disease that if left untreated leads to progressive loss of vision that can lead to irreversible blindness.

What is Xalatan Latanoprost ?

Xalatan belongs to the group of medicines known as prostaglandin analogs. It works by increasing the natural outflow of fluid from inside the eye into the bloodstream.

How does it work?

Treatment with latanoprost reduced IOP levels by 22 to 39% more than treatment from 1 to 12 months. Latanoprost was more effective than timolol 0.5% twice daily in 3 of 4 large (n = 163-267) randomized, double-blind trials. Latanoprost demonstrated a stable long-term IOP reducing effect in 1- or 2-year continuations of these trials, with no signs of decreased effect during prolonged treatment.

Meta-analysis suggests that latanoprost is more effective than timolol in reducing IOP. However, it often causes the iris to pigment. While current evidence suggests that this pigmentation is benign, careful assessment of patients' lifetimes remains warranted.

What are the benefits of taking it?

Xalatan eye drop uses include being indicated to treat diseases known as open-angle glaucoma and ocular hypertension in adults. Both diseases are related to an increase in pressure inside the eye, which can affect vision. Xalatan is also used to treat increased pressure within the eye and glaucoma in children and babies of all ages.

How do I use it and its dosage?

Follow exactly the Xalatan instructions given by your doctor, or by the doctor treating your child. Ask your doctor, or the doctor treating your child, or the pharmacist if you have questions.

The recommended Xalatan Eye Drop dose for adults (including the elderly) and children is one drop in the eye or affected eyes once a day. It is preferable to be administered at night.

Do not use Xalatan more than once a day; The effectiveness of the treatment may decrease if it is administered more frequently.

Use Xalatan exactly as your doctor or your child's treating doctor has told you to until you stop.

Contact lens wearers

If you or your child wear contact lenses, you should remove them before using Xalatan. After application, you must wait 15 minutes before putting your contact lenses back on.

  • Wash your hands and sit comfortably.
  • Remove the outer protective cap (which can be discarded).
  • Unscrew the inner protective cap. The stopper must be kept.
  • Using your finger, gently separate the lower eyelid from the eye to be treated.
  • Place the tip of the bottle close to but not touching the eye.
  • Gently squeeze the bottle so that only one drop falls into the eye. Remove your finger from the lower eyelid.
  • Press your finger to the end of the affected eye, near the nose. Exert pressure for 1 minute, keeping your eye closed.
  • Repeat the operation on the other eye, if your doctor has told you to.
  • After use, put the inner protective cap back on the bottle

Side effects & precautions

Like all medicines, this medicine can cause side effects, although not everybody gets them.

The following are known side effects when using Xalatan:

Very common side effects (may affect more than 1 in 10 patients):

A gradual change in the color of the eyes by increasing the amount of brown pigment in the colored part of the eye known as the iris. If you have mixed-color eyes (blue-brown, gray-brown, yellow-brown, or green-brown), you are more likely to experience this change than if your eyes are single-colored (blue, gray, green, or brown). The change in eye color takes years to develop, although it can usually be seen after 8 months of treatment. The color change can be permanent and can be more striking if Xalatan is used only in one eye. The change in the color of the eye does not seem to be associated with the appearance of any problem. The change in eye color does not progress once treatment with Xalatan has been discontinued.

Redness of the eye.

Eye irritation (stinging sensation, grit feeling in the eye, itching, pain, and foreign body sensation in the eye). If you experience severe eye irritation that causes your eyes to water excessively or causes you to consider stopping treatment, contact your doctor, pharmacist,or nurse as soon as possible (within one week). You may require that your treatment be reviewed to ensure that you are receiving the appropriate treatment for your condition.
