Alphagan Drug Interactions
Alphagan Drug Interactions ExplainedThe following sections explain in detail the potentially negative interactions that can occur when Alphagan is combined with any of the drugs listed above.
Blood Pressure Medications
It is possible that combining Alphagan with high blood pressure medications could cause your blood pressure to drop too much. However, this possibility is probably unlikely.
Medications That Cause Drowsiness
Combining Alphagan with other medications that can cause drowsiness may cause an additive drowsiness effect. This is probably more of a concern with young children (age two through seven years old), as they are much more likely than adults to experience drowsiness due to Alphagan.
Monoamine Oxidase Inhibitors (MAOIs)
Alphagan should never be combined with an MAOI, due to the risk of serious reactions.
Other Eye Medications
If you take other eye medications in addition to Alphagan, make sure to wait at least five minutes between using Alphagan and other eye medications.
Theoretically, tricyclic antidepressants may decrease the effectiveness of Alphagan, although it is unclear how significant this potential interaction actually is.
