Xalatan Side Effects

Serious Side Effects

Some side effects with Xalatan, while occurring infrequently, are potentially serious and should be reported immediately to your healthcare provider. These include  but are not limited to:
 
  • Eye infections (if the bottle becomes contaminated with use)
  • Blood clots in the eye
  • Retinal detachment (which can lead to blindness)
  • Signs of an allergic reaction, including unexplained rash, hives, itching, unexplained swelling, or difficulty breathing.
     

Final Thoughts

You may experience some or none of the Xalatan side effects listed in this article. Unfortunately, there is no way for your healthcare provider to know beforehand if you will have problems with 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 medication or if something "just does not seem right." While it may not be related to Xalatan, your healthcare provider will be able to diagnose and treat the problem.
