Drug Interactions
Specific drug interaction studies have not been performed with Latanoprost/Timolol.
There have been reports of paradoxical elevations in intraocular pressure following the concomitant ophthalmic administration of two prostaglandin analogues. Therefore, the use of two or more prostaglandins, prostaglan­din analogues, or prostaglandin derivatives is not recommended.
The effect on intraocular pressure or the known effects of systemic beta-blockade may be potentiated when Latanoprost and Timolol is given to patients already receiving an oral beta-adrenergic agent, and the concomitant use of two or more topical beta-adrenergic blocking agents is not recommended.
Mydriasis resulting from concomitant use of ophthalmic beta-blockers and adrenaline (epinephrine) has been reported occasionally.
There is a potential for additive effects resulting in hypotension and/or marked bradycardia when eye drops with Timolol are administered concomitantly with oral calcium channel blockers, guanethidine or beta-blocking agents, anti-arrhythmics, digitalis glycosides or parasympa­thomimetics.
The hypertensive reaction to sudden withdrawal of clonidine can be potentiated when taking beta-blockers.
Beta-blockers may increase the hypoglycaemic effect of antidiabetic agents. Beta-blockers can mask signs and symptoms of hypoglycaemia.
