Description

Bisacodyl is a stool softener, which is used in the treatment of constipation by preventing dry and hard stools. It is also used before certain medical procedures to empty the bowels.

How do I use it?

Immediately after administering the eye drops, close the eye and press on the tear duct (at the corner of the eye closest to your nose) for about two minutes. This is to minimise the amount of medicine that may be absorbed into the bloodstream, which will increase the local effect in the eye and minimise any adverse effects elsewhere in the body.

If any of the eye drops run onto your cheek you should wipe this away.

When using these eye drops you should take care to not touch the dropper tip to any surface, or to your eye.

If you miss a dose just apply your next dose as usual. Don't use the drops twice in one day to make up for a missed dose.

Each preservative-free single-use vial contains enough solution to put one drop in both eyes. However, only treat both eyes if you have been told to do so by your doctor. If there is any medicine remaining in the single-use container after you have used it this should be thrown away and not kept for future use.

How does it work?

Timolol is a type of medicine called a beta-blocker. These medicines block beta-receptors in various parts of the body. Blocking the beta receptors in the eye reduces the amount of aqueous humour that is produced. Timolol therefore reduces the inflow of aqueous humour into the eyeball and so decreases the pressure within the eye in a different way.

The combination of these two medicines is used to lower the pressure in the eye when a beta-blocker or a prostaglandin analogue eye drop does not lower the pressure enough on its own.
