How does Travacom work?

This product combination consists of two different medications: travoprost and timolol. Travoprost belongs to a class of medications called prostaglandin analogues. Timolol belongs to a class of medications called beta-adrenergic receptor blockers (also known as beta-blockers).

Travoprost - timolol is used to reduce the pressure inside the eye for people with open-angle glaucoma or ocular hypertension (increased pressure in the eye in people who do not have a complete response to treatment with only one medication). This medication is used when your doctor feels it is appropriate to use both travoprost and timolol. This medication is not to be used as initial treatment.

Fluid is constantly being formed and drained out of the eye. When this fluid does not drain out of the eye properly, pressure inside the eye increases. Travoprost - timolol works by reducing the amount of fluid produced by the eye and by increasing the flow of fluid out of the eye.

Your doctor may have suggested this medication for conditions other than those listed in these drug information articles. As well, some forms of this medication may not be used for all of the conditions discussed here. If you have not discussed this with your doctor or are not sure why you are being given this medication, speak to your doctor. Do not stop using this medication without consulting your doctor.

Do not give this medication to anyone else, even if they have the same symptoms as you do. It can be harmful for people to use this medication if their doctor has not prescribed it.

How should I use Travacom?

The recommended adult dose of travaprost - timolol is one drop in the affected eye(s) once daily each morning. Do not use more than once a day.

Many things can affect the dose of a medication that a person needs, such as body weight, other medical conditions, and other medications. If your doctor has recommended a dose different from the ones listed here, do not change the way that you are using the medication without consulting your doctor.

To use the eye drops:

1. Wash your hands before using the eye drops.
2. Remove the cap and place it in a clean location. To avoid possible contamination, keep the tip of the container away from contact with any surface.
3. Tilt the head back and look towards the ceiling.
4. With your index finger, gently pull the lower eyelid down and away from the eye to form a pouch.
5. Apply one drop into the pouch but do not allow the tip of the container to touch the eye or areas around the eye.
6. Gently apply pressure to the inner corner of the eye (at the bridge of the nose) for about 30 seconds (this is called nasolacrimal occlusion). This prevents the medication from dripping down through the tear duct and entering the bloodstream, which could cause you to experience some side effects.
7. Repeat with the other eye, if prescribed by your physician.
8. Wash your hands again to remove any medication.

Do not allow the dropper tip of the bottle to touch the eye or other surrounding structures. This can contaminate the tip with common bacteria known to cause eye infections. Serious damage to the eye, possibly leading to loss of vision may result if you use eye drop solutions that have become contaminated.

If you use other eye drops as well, wait at least 5 minutes before using them.

If you wear contact lenses, remove them before instilling travoprost - timolol into your eye. You may put your contact lenses back in 15 minutes after using the medication.

It is important to use this medication exactly as prescribed by your doctor. If you miss a dose, skip the missed dose and continue with your regular dosing schedule. Do not administer a double dose to make up for a missed one. If you are not sure what to do after missing a dose, contact your doctor or pharmacist for advice.
