Travoprost + Timolol Maleate
This Sterile Ophthalmic Solution is indicated for the treatment of elevated intraocular pressure in patients with open angle glaucoma or ocular hypertension who are insufficiently responsive to single therapy with prostaglandin analogue or topical beta blocker.
Travoprost and Timolol reduce intraocular pressure (IOP) by complementary mechanisms of action. Travoprost is a prostaglandin analogue which reduces IOP by increasing trabecular outflow & uveoscleral outflow. Timolol is a non-selective beta adrenergic receptor blocker that does not have significant intrinsic sympathomimetic, direct myocardial depressant, or local anesthetic (membrane stabilizing) activity. It lowers IOP by decreasing the formation of aqueous humor in the ciliary epithelium.
Dosage & Administration

Contraindicated in patients who are hypersensitive to Travoprost, Timolol or any of the components of this preparation.
