Betagan Side Effects

Serious Side Effects

Some side effects with Betagan, while occurring infrequently, are potentially serious and should be reported immediately to your healthcare provider. These include, but are not limited to:
 

 

    • An unexplained rash or hives
    • Itching (more than the usual itching related to eye allergies)
    • Unexplained swelling, especially of the mouth, lips, or throat
    • Wheezing or difficulty breathing. 

 

Of course, any eye drop can cause problems (such as an eye infection) if it is contaminated, so be sure to avoid touching the tip of the dropper to any surface, including the surface of the eye. Report any signs of an eye infection (such as severe pain, swelling, or redness) to your healthcare provider right away.
 

Final Thoughts on Betagan Side Effects

You may experience some or none of the Betagan side effects listed in this article. Unfortunately, there is no way for your healthcare provider to know beforehand if you will have side effects from a medicine that you have never tried. Therefore, make sure to let your healthcare provider know if you develop any side effects while taking the drug or if something "just does not seem right." While it may not be a side effect of Betagan, your healthcare provider will be able to diagnose and treat the problem.
