Drug Interactions
No specific drug interaction studies have been performed with travoprost or timolol.
There is a potential for additive effects resulting in hypotension and/or marked bradycardia when ophthalmic beta blocker solution is administered concomitantly with oral calcium channel blockers, beta-adrenergic blocking agents, antiarrhythmics (including amiodarone), digitalis glycosides, parasympathomimetics or guanethidine.
The hypertensive reaction to sudden withdrawal of clonidine can be potentiated when taking beta-blockers.
Potentiated systemic beta-blockade (e.g. decreased heart rate, depression) has been reported during combined treatment with CYP2D6 inhibitors (e.g. quinidine, fluoxetine, paroxetine) and timolol.
Mydriasis resulting from concomitant use of ophthalmic beta-blockers and adrenaline (epinephrine) has been reported occasionally.
Beta-blockers may increase the hypoglycaemic effect of antidiabetic medicinal products. Beta-blockers can mask the signs and symptoms of hypoglycaemia (see Precautions).
