Description

Dorzolamide HCl is indicated for use in the treatment of glaucoma (increased ocular pressure). Elevated intraocular pressure is a major risk factor in the development of optic nerve damage and glaucomatous visual field loss.

For: Cats and Dogs
Benefits:
  • Reduces pressure in the eye due to glaucoma
  • Controls production of fluid, particularly within the eye
  • Reduces risk of nerve damage and loss of vision

  • How it works: Dorzolamide HCl inhibits carbonic anhydrase II. Inhibition of carbonic anhydrase decreases aqueous humor secretion, presumably by slowing the formation of bicarbonate ions with subsequent reduction in sodium and fluid transport. The result is a reduction in intraocular pressure (IOP).

    Prescription Required

    Directions

    Dosage & Administration: Use Dorzolamide HCl exactly as directed by your veterinarian. If you do not understand these directions, ask your pharmacist or veterinarian to explain them to you. Always wash your hands before and after applying this medication. Apply the medication to the pets eye by pushing on the "Finger Push Area" of the bottle which then releases a single drop of the medication. If you are using another eye drop in your pet, wait 10 minutes between use of different medications. Do not touch the dropper to any surface, including the eyes and hands. If it becomes contaminated, it could cause an infection in the eye. Do not use if the eyedrop is discolored or has particles in it. Store Dorzolamide HCl at room temperature away from moisture and heat. Protect from light. Keep the bottle properly capped.

    What happens if I overdose the pet: Symptoms of Dorzolamide HCl overdose are not known but may include panting, diarrhea, vomiting and loss of appetite which can occur when using oral carbonic anhydrase inhibitors. If an overdose is suspected, flush the eye with water and call your veterinarian or veterinary emergency room.

    What should I avoid while giving Dorzolamide HCl to my pet: Dorzolamide HCl may cause blurred vision. Do not touch the dropper to any surface, including the eyes and hands. If it becomes contaminated, it could cause an infection in the eye. If you are using another eye drop in your pet, wait 10 minutes between use of different medications.

    Possible side effects of Dorzolamide HCl: If any of the following serious side effects occur, stop using this Dorzolamide HCl and seek emergency veterinary medical attention; an allergic reaction (swelling of the lips, face, or tongue; difficulty breathing; closing of the throat; or hives). Less serious side effects may be more likely to occur. Continue to use Dorzolamide HCl and contact your veterinarian if your pet experiences itching or watering of the eye; blurred vision; sensitivity of the eye to sunlight; fatigue; rash; or nausea. Side effects other than those listed here may also occur. Talk to your veterinarian about any side effect that seems unusual or bothersome to the animal.

    What other drugs will affect Dorzolamide HCl: Tell your veterinarian if your pet is being given an oral carbonic anhydrase inhibitor such as acetazolamide (Diamox), dichlorphenamide (Daranide), or methazolamide (Neptazane). Avoid applying other topical medications at the same time unless told to by the veterinarian. Other topical medications may affect the absorption or effectiveness of Dorzolamide HCl. Drugs other than those listed may also interact with Trusopt. Talk to your veterinarian or pharmacist before giving any prescription or over the counter medications, including vitamins, minerals, and herbal products.

    What should I discuss with my veterinarian before giving Dorzolamide HCl to my pet: Tell your veterinarian if your pet has ever had an allergic reaction to a sulfa based drug such as SMZ/TMP (bactrim, Septra), sulfisoxazole, sulfamethoxazole, or sulfacetamide sodium (Bleph-10), Sulamyd Sodium). Dorzolamide HCl is based on a sulfa compound and your pet may have an allergic reaction to it. Tell your veterinarian if your pet has kidney or liver disease. Tell your veterinarian if your pet is pregnant, lactating, or if you intend to breed your pet.

    Cautions: Disclose all medications you are giving to your pet to your veterinarian. If any side effects occur (swelling, hives, difficulty breathing), stop using Dorzolamide HCl on your pet and contact your veterinarian. Do not touch the dropper to any surface, including the eyes and hands. If it becomes contaminated, it could cause an infection in the eye.
