About Simbrinza

Overview

This product contains two medications used to treat high pressure in the eye due to glaucoma (open-angle glaucoma-type) or a certain other eye disease (ocular hypertension). Lowering high pressure in the eye reduces the risk of vision loss, nerve damage, or blindness. This product contains brinzolamide and brimonidine. These two medications work together to decrease the amount of fluid within the eye. Brinzolamide belongs to a class of drugs known as carbonic anhydrase inhibitors. Brimonidine belongs to a class of drugs known as alpha agonists.

This product is not recommended for use in children younger than 2 years of age due to an increased risk of serious side effects such as very slowed breathing. Ask the doctor or pharmacist for details.

How to use

This medication is for use in the eye(s) as directed by your doctor, usually one drop in the affected eye(s) 3 times daily. Shake the bottle well before each dose.

To apply eye drops, wash hands first. To avoid contamination, do not touch the dropper tip or let it touch your eye or any other surface.

The preservative in this product may be absorbed by contact lenses. If you are wearing contact lenses, remove them before using eye drops. Wait at least 15 minutes before replacing your contact lenses.

Tilt your head back, look upward, and pull down the lower eyelid to make a pouch. Hold the dropper directly over your eye and place one drop into the pouch. Look downward, gently close your eyes, and place one finger at the corner of your eye (near the nose). Apply gentle pressure for 1 to 2 minutes before opening your eyes. This will prevent the medication from draining out. Try not to blink or rub your eye. If directed to use this medication in both eyes, repeat these steps for your other eye. Wait several minutes for your vision to clear before driving or operating machinery. Do not rinse the dropper. Replace the dropper cap after each use.

If you are using another kind of eye medication (such as drops or ointments), wait at least 5 minutes before applying other medications. Use eye drops before eye ointments to allow the drops to enter the eye.

Use this medication regularly to get the most benefit from it. To help you remember, use it at the same time(s) each day. Keep using this medication even if you feel well. Most people with glaucoma or high pressure in the eye do not feel sick.

Side effects

Eye discomfort/itching/redness/discharge, temporary blurred vision, dry eyes, feeling as if something is in your eye, dry mouth, bitter/sour/unusual taste in your mouth, dizziness, drowsiness, tiredness, and headache may occur. If any of these effects persist or worsen, tell your doctor or pharmacist promptly.

Remember that your doctor has prescribed this medication because he or she has judged that the benefit to you is greater than the risk of side effects. Many people using this medication do not have serious side effects.

Tell your doctor right away if you have any serious side effects, including: fast/pounding heartbeat, eye or eyelid pain/burning/swelling, extreme sensitivity to light, vision changes.

Get medical help right away if you have any very serious side effects, including: fainting, slow/irregular heartbeat.
