Will Azopt raise blood pressure?
There is no definitive answer to whether or not Will Azopt raise blood pressure. Some people say that it does, while others maintain that it does not. The truth is, everyone’s body reacts differently to medications, so it’s hard to say for certain what the outcome will be in any given individual case. However, if you are concerned about the possibility of a blood pressure increase with this medication, you should speak with your doctor before starting treatment.
What is the half life of Azopt?
Azopt is a medication that is used to treat open-angle glaucoma. It works by decreasing the amount of fluid in the eye, which helps to lower pressure inside the eye. The half life of Azopt is about 5 hours, meaning that it takes about 5 hours for half of the medication to be eliminated from the body. This means that if you take a dose of Azopt at 8am, by 1pm approximately 50% of the drug will have been eliminated and by 4pm approximately 75% will have been eliminated.
Is there a preservative free Azopt?
There is no preservative-free Azopt. The active ingredient, brinzolamide, is a sulfonamide which can cause allergic reactions in people who are sensitive to it.
Should Azopt be refrigerated?
There are many reasons why you should not refrigerate your Azopt eye drops. One reason is because it can cause the preservative benzalkonium chloride to break down, which can then lead to contamination of the solution and possible infection of your eyesight. Additionally, if the temperature gets too cold, it can cause the drug to precipitate out of suspension and form crystals on contact with the surface of your eyes, which will impair its ability to lower intraocular pressure (IOP).
It’s also important to note that keeping your medication at a consistent room temperature will help maintain its potency and efficacy over time – so there’s no need for you to worry about whether or not it needs refrigeration!
