SALT INFORMATIONBimatoprost (0.03%w/v) TYPICAL USAGE Glucoma, hypertension. SIDE EFFECTS Photosensitivity, photophobia, dizziness, headache, itching, burning eyes, eye pain, dry eye. DRUG INTERACTION Bimatoprost is known to interact with other drugs like latanoprost. Always consult your physician for the change of dose regimen or an alternative drug of choice that may strictly be required. MECHANISM OF ACTION Bimatoprost is believed to lower intraocular pressure (IOP) in humans by increasing outflow of aqueous humor through both the trabecular meshwork and uveoscleral routes. Bimatoprost reduces the pressure in the eye by mimicking the action of a naturally-occuring prostaglandin. Prostaglandins are a group of chemicals found in many places in the body. In the eye, they increase the drainage of the aqueous humour out of the eyeball. Bimatoprost is a synthetic compound related to one of the natural prostaglandins, and works by increasing the drainage of aqueous humour out of the eyeball. Bimatoprost may also lower the rate of aqueous formation in the eye. Both these effects decrease the pressure within the eye.
