What is this drug
Generic Timoptic is an ophthalmic solution which is used to treat open angle and secondary glaucoma. Its generic name is Timolol and it is available both as an ophthalmic solution like in this case, or as an oral drug. It is also sold as Timoptol for the treatment of glaucoma. It is used to treat this condition due to its ability to reduce the intraocular pressure.
Classification and Mechanism of Action
Generic Timoptic is a beta-adrenergic receptor antagonist and it reduces the intraocular pressure by reducing the production of aqueous humor. This is done through the blockage of beta receptors on the ciliary epithelium. The exact pharmacological mechanism through which this is achieved is still unknown.
