Timotic uses and description

Sort by popularity
Timotic - Used for: Treating high blood pressure. It is also used to help prevent a second heart attack in patients who have survived a first heart attack and are stable and to prevent migraines. It may also be used for other conditions as determined by your doctor.

Timotic is a beta-blocker. It works by interfering with body chemicals that shrink blood vessels and interfere with normal heart contractions.

Timotic is in a group of drugs called beta-blockers. Beta-blockers affect the heart and circulation (blood flow through arteries and veins).

Timotic is used to treat hypertension (high blood pressure).

Timotic may also be used for purposes other than those listed in this medication guide.

Similar to propranolol and nadolol, Timotic is a non-selective, beta-adrenergic receptor antagonist. Timotic does not have significant intrinsic sympathomimetic, direct myocardial depressant, or local anesthetic (membrane-stabilizing) activity, but does possess a relatively high degree of lipid solubility. Timolol, when applied topically to the eye, has the action of reducing elevated, as well as normal, intraocular pressure, whether or not accompanied by glaucoma. Elevated intraocular pressure is a major risk factor in the pathogenesis of glaucomatous visual field loss and optic nerve damage.

Timolol belongs to a group of drugs called beta blockers. Like other beta blockers, it blocks the action of sympathetic nervous system (heart effects). In addition to the heart effects, Timolol also reduces intra-ocular pressure that in its turn reduces the damage to the optic nerve and loss of sight during Glaucoma.

Indications:

  • If you have ever suffered from allergy to Timolol, beta-blockers, or any other drugs.
  • You are currently using another type of eye medication
  • If you ever experienced the following conditions be sure to report it to your health care provider:
  • Ling disease
  • Heart failure
  • Thyroid
  • heart disease
  • diabetes
  • myasthenia gravis
  • If you are pregnant or plan to become pregnant
  • If you were having dental or any other types of surgery.
  • If you have any eye related problems or dysfunctions
  • If you were lenses or your vision is impaired

  • Timotic is used to treat certain types of glaucoma and other causes of high pressure in the eye. Timotic helps to lower the pressure in the eye. If left untreated, an increase in pressure within the eye can cause loss of vision and damage to the eyes.
