Description

Dorzolamide is used as a treatment for glaucoma, and is often prescribed by veterinarians for use with dogs and cats. This drug contains a carbonic anhydrase inhibitor which decreases intraocular pressure, a characteristic of many types of glaucoma. (Manufacturer may vary)

Key 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).

Indications

Dorzolamide HCl Ophthalmic Solution is a carbonic anhydrase inhibitor indicated in the treatment of elevated intraocular pressure in patients with ocular hypertension or open-angle glaucoma.

Ingredients

Active Ingredients (per ml) Amount
Dorzolamide Hydrochloride 22.3 mg/ml
Benzalkonium Chloride (preservative) 0.0075%
Other Ingredients: Hydroxyethyl Cellulose, mannitol, sodium citrate dihydrate, sodium hydroxide (to adjust pH) and water for injection.

Directions

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.

  • Dorzolamide HCl Sterile Ophthalmic Solution is a prescription medication used in dogs and cats to reduce pressure inside the eye by reducing the amount of fluid in the eye.
  • Dorzolamide HCl Sterile Ophthalmic Solution is also used to treat high blood pressure in the eye due to open-angle glaucoma.
  • Dorzolamide HCl Sterile Ophthalmic Solution is a prescription medication not FDA approved for veterinary use; however, it is a commonly accepted practice for veterinarians to prescribe this medication for dogs and cats.

Tip: Do not touch the dropper to any surface, including eyes and hands. The dropper is sterile. If it becomes contaminated, it could cause an infection of the eye. Do not use if the eye drop is discolored or has particles in it. Dorzolamide HCl Sterile Ophthalmic Solution may cause blurred vision.

Caution:

Disclose all medications you are giving to your pet to your veterinarian.

Precautions:

Therefore, the same types of adverse reactions that are attributable to sulfonamides may occur with topical administration of Dorzolamide HCl Ophthalmic Solution.

This drug is FDA-approved for human use. However, it is common practice for veterinarians to prescribe such drugs for use in dogs and cats.

Possible Side Effects:

The most frequently reported adverse reactions associated with Dorzolamide HCl Ophthalmic Solution were ocular burning, stinging, or discomfort immediately following ocular administration (approximately one-third of patients). Approximately one-quarter of patients noted a bitter taste following administration. Superficial punctate keratitis occurred in 10 to 15% of patients and signs and symptoms of ocular allergic reaction in approximately 10%.

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.
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.
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.

Thanks for your wonderfully speedy delivery of Missy’s eye meds. Without them she’s in a lot of pain, and we were almost out of them . The local pharmacy couldn’t deliver for a week. My daughter found you online (bless her heart) and you were so responsive. We emailed the prescription. Then It felt as if I had just gotten off the phone with your rep, and boom, there were her eye drops. You’ve earned a devoted customer.

Thanks again from all of us.
