Waarvoor wordt dit middel gebruikt?

Bimatoprost XXX is an antiglaucoma preparation. It belongs to a group of medicines called prostamides.

Bimatoprost XXX eye drops are used to reduce high pressure in the eye. This medicine may be used on its own or with other drops called beta-blockers which also reduce pressure.

Your eye contains a clear, watery liquid that feeds the inside of the eye. Liquid is constantly being drained out of the eye and new liquid is made to replace this. If the liquid cannot drain out quickly enough, the pressure inside the eye builds up. This medicine works by increasing the amount of liquid that is drained. This reduces the pressure inside the eye. If high pressure is not reduced, it could lead to a disease called glaucoma and eventually damage your sight.


Wanneer mag u dit middel niet gebruiken of moet u er extra voorzichtig mee zijn?

Do not use Bimatoprost XXX:

- if you are allergic to bimatoprost or any of the other ingredients of this medicine (listed in section 6).

    • You wear contact lenses (see “Bimatoprost XXX contains”)
    • You have or have had low blood pressure or low heart rate
    • You have had a viral infection or inflammation of the eye

Bimatoprost XXX may cause your eyelashes to darken and grow, and cause the skin around the eyelid to darken too. The colour of your iris may also go darker over time. These changes may be permanent. The change may be more noticeable if you are only treating one eye.

Children and adolescents

Bimatoprost XXX has not been tested in children under the age of 18 and therefore Bimatoprost XXX should not be used by patients under 18 years.

Other medicines and Bimatoprost XXX:

Tell your doctor or pharmacist if you are using, have recently used or might use any other medicines.

Pregnancy and breastfeeding and fertility

If you are pregnant or breast-feeding, think you may be pregnant or are planning to have a baby, ask your doctor or pharmacist for advice before using this medicine.

Bimatoprost XXX may get into breast milk so you should not breastfeed while you are using this medicine.

Driving and using machines:

Your sight may become blurred for a short time just after using Bimatoprost XXX. You should not drive or use machines until your sight is clear again.

Bimatoprost XXX contains benzalkonium chloride

Do not use the drops when you are wearing your lenses. Wait 15 minutes after using the drops before you put your lenses back in. The preservative, benzalkonium chloride, may cause eye irritation and can discolour soft contact lenses.


Hoe gebruikt u dit middel?

Always use this medicine exactly as described in this leaflet or as your doctor or pharmacist has told you. Check with your doctor or pharmacist if you are not sure.

Bimatoprost XXX should only be applied to the eye. The recommended dose is one drop of Bimatoprost in the evening, once daily in each eye that needs treatment.

If you use Bimatoprost XXX with another eye medicine, wait at least 5 minutes between using Bimatoprost XXX and the other eye medicine.

Instructions for use:

  1. Wash your hands. Tilt your head back and look at the ceiling.
  2. Gently pull down the lower eyelid until there is a small pocket.
  1. Turn the bottle upside down and squeeze it to release one drop into each eye that needs treatment.
  2. Let go of the lower lid, and close your eye for 30 seconds.

Wipe off any excess that runs down the cheek.

If a drop misses your eye, try again.

To help prevent infections, do not let the tip of the bottle touch your eye or anything else. Put the cap back on and close the bottle straight after you have used it.

If you use more Bimatoprost XXX than you should

If you use more Bimatoprost XXX than you should, it is unlikely to cause you any serious harm. Put your next dose in at the usual time. If you are worried, talk to your doctor or pharmacist.

If you forget to use Bimatoprost XXX

If you forget to use Bimatoprost XXX, use a single drop as soon as you remember, and then go back to your regular routine. Do not use a double dose to make up for a forgotten dose.

If you stop using Bimatoprost XXX

Bimatoprost xxx should be used every day to work properly. If you stop using Bimatoprost XXX the pressure inside your eye may go up, therefore talk to your doctor before stopping this treatment.
