Dorzox T 5 ml eye drop is used to treat increased pressure in the eye caused by ocular hypertension and open-angle glaucoma; both eye conditions cause high pressure within the eye, known as intraocular pressure that may lead to eye pain and harm your vision. This medicament helps in reducing pressure by reducing the formation of aqueous humor secretion and thus relieves eye pain due to glaucoma. It is a combined sterile, buffered and isotonic solution. It contains two drugs: Dorzolamide Hydrochloride, a sulfonamide carbonic anhydrase inhibitor, and Timolol Meleate, a beta-adrenergic blocker first beta-blocker approved for topical use. Both the drugs are together used to treat glaucoma, an eye disorder and lower the pressure inside the eye when their eye pressure is too high (intraocular pressure).
Always use Dorzox T 5 ml exactly as your doctor has told you. Check with your doctor if you are not sure about the correct dosing regimen of this medicine. Your doctor should determine the appropriate dosage and duration of treatment. In general, the recommended dose is one drop in the affected eyes twice daily. If you use Dorzox T eye drops with another ophthalmic solution, leave at least ten minutes between putting in the combination eye drop. Do not change the dose of the drug without discussing it with your ophthalmologist. If you wish to discontinue treatment, contact your doctor immediately. Do not allow the tip of the container to touch your eye or the area around your eyes. It may be contaminated with bacteria that can cause eye infections, leading to serious eye complications. To avoid contamination, keep the tip of the bottle away from contact with any surface.
Do not use Dorzox T 5 ml eye drop if you are allergic to Dorzolamide or timolol or any other medicine ingredients. Also, you should avoid ophthalmic suspension if you have certain medical conditions such as asthma, severe chronic lung disease, kidney stones, disturbance in the pH and heart problems.
