Description of Isopto Atropine

Isopto Atropine has Atropine Sulphate as its active ingredient, and it belongs to the class of anti-muscarinics or anticholinergics. You can buy Isopto Atropine in the form of an ophthalmic solution. This drug is used only for patients more than 3 months of age. Use the drug exactly as prescribed by your doctor, as using more or less than prescribed may have adverse effects.

Indications & Dosage of Isopto Atropine

Isopto Atropine is used for dilating or widening the patient’s pupil before an eye examination or for treating an eye condition such as uveitis. The eye drops cause the muscles of your eye to relax, so that the pupil is widened and it does not respond to light. Atropine also blocks receptors of muscles in your eyes that are involved in controlling your pupil’s size and lens’ shape.

Patients with darker irises require larger doses of Isopto Atropine, as they are harder to dilate. If you are using the eye drops before an eye examination, you will be advised to apply one drop into the eye two times per day 2-3 days before the examination. For the treatment of uveitis, you will be advised to apply one drop in the eye 2-3 times per day.

Side Effects & Interactions of Isopto Atropine

Some of the side effects commonly associated with Isopto Atropine include blurred vision, burning, stinging or itching in the eye. These are temporary side effects of the drug and subside on their own within a few minutes of applying the eye drops. However, inform your doctor at once if any of these persist or worsen.

Some serious side effects associated with Isopto Atropine include:

  • Difficulty urinating
  • Eye pain
  • Dry mouth
  • Fever
  • Dryness or flushing of skin
  • Rapid or irregular heartbeat
  • Unsteadiness of the feet

Symptoms of an allergy include hives, difficulty breathing, chest tightness, severe dizziness or facial swelling. Stop using the medicine at once if you develop any of these symptoms. Seek medical attention if any of these persist even after discontinuing the drug.

Some of the medicines that may adversely interact with Isopto Atropine eye drops include antiarrhythmic drugs (such as procainamide or quinidine), antispasmodics (such as dicyclomine), antihistamines (such as meclizine or diphenhydramine), MAO inhibitors (such as isocarboxazide or linezolid), anti-Parkinson’s disease drugs (such as benztropine), tricyclic antidepressants (such as amitriptyline) or any other eye medicines.

Warnings & Precautions of Isopto Atropine

Your doctor will not recommend you to buy Isopto Atropine if you have an allergy to any ingredients in it, or to any belladonna alkaloids (such as scopolamine). Also do not use this drug if you have glaucoma.

Inform your doctor beforehand if you have any other eye condition, spastic paralysis, brain damage or Down’s syndrome.

As Isopto Atropine may make your vision blurred temporarily, you should not drive a vehicle, operate a machine or do any such activity that needs clear vision, as a serious accident may take place.

As these eye drops may increase your eyes’ sensitivity to light, avoid being exposed to bright light or direct sunlight. Wear dark sunglasses while outdoors.
