Brimonidine (Brimonidine Tartrate Ophthalmic) - Summary



Brimonidine Tartrate Ophthalmic Solution 0.2% is a relatively selective alpha-2 adrenergic agonist for ophthalmic use. In solution, brimonidine tartrate ophthalmic solution 0.2% has a clear, greenish-yellow color. It has an osmolality of 280-330 mOsml/kg and a pH of 5.6-6.

Brimonidine tartrate ophthalmic solution 0.2% is indicated for lowering intraocular pressure in patients with open-angle glaucoma or ocular hypertension. The lOP lowering efficacy of brimonidine tartrate ophthalmic solution 0.2% diminishes over time in some patients. This loss of effect appears with a variable time of onset in each patient and should be closely monitored.
