Travoprost is a synthetic prostaglandin analogue. It is a selective FP prostanoid receptor agonist which is believed to reduce intraocular pressure by increasing uveoscleral outflow.
Indications And Uses
Elevated intraocular pressure in patients with ocular hypertension or open-angle glaucoma.
Dosage And Administration
Use in adults: One drop in the affected eye once-daily in the evening. The dosage of Travoprost should not exceed once daily since it has been shown that more frequent administration may decrease the normal intraocular pressure.
