Trusopt Eye Drop Information

Available in the form of an eye drop, Trusopt® (dorzolamide hydrochloride) is a prescription drug used to treat high eye pressure. It is approved for use in people with chronic open-angle glaucoma or ocular hypertension.
 
The medication is generally administered three times a day in the affected eye(s). Although most people are able to use the eye drops without any problems, some people do experience side effects during treatment with Trusopt, such as eye burning, stinging, or discomfort.
 
Because these eye drops may not be the best choice for everyone, it's important to provide your healthcare provider with up-to-date information on your health situation before starting treatment. Let him or her know if you are taking any other medications, have any allergies, or have any other medical conditions, such as liver or kidney disease.
