Azopt Drug Interactions
Other Carbonic Anhydrase Inhibitors
Azopt is a carbonic anhydrase inhibitor. Even though it is an eye drop, some of the medication is absorbed into the bloodstream. Due to the possibility of increased side effects, it is not recommended to combine Azopt with another carbonic anhydrase inhibitor.
Other Eye Medications
If you use other eye medications, make sure to separate your dose of Azopt and your dose of the other medication(s) by at least 10 minutes.
There have been rare reports of serious drug interactions (resulting in serious problems) in people taking high-dose salicylates and oral carbonic anhydrase inhibitors. The risk of such problems is probably extremely small for Azopt (as it is given as an eye drop), especially if combined with low or normal doses of salicylates.
