Why Dorzolamide HCL?
  • For use in the treatment of glaucoma (increased ocular pressure)
  • Elevated intraocular pressure is a major risk factor in the development of optic nerve damage and glaucomatous visual field loss
  • For Cats and Dogs
Benefits:
  • Reduces pressure in the eye due to glaucoma
  • Controls production of fluid, particularly within the eye
  • Reduces risk of nerve damage and loss of vision
Dorzolamide HCl inhibits carbonic anhydrase II. Inhibition of carbonic anhydrase decreases aqueous humor secretion, presumably by slowing the formation of bicarbonate ions with subsequent reduction in sodium and fluid transport. The result is a reduction in intraocular pressure (IOP). 

Timolol/Dorzolamide drops contains two drugs used to treat high pressure inside the eye due to glaucoma or other eye diseases. Lowering high pressure inside the eye helps to prevent blindness. The medication works by decreasing the amount of fluid within the eye.

1. on 5/21/2018, said:
This Dorzolamide HCL 2% should be taken off the market. I just reported it to the FDA in April 2018. I was told by Sandoz it has never been tested on animals,its a human Glaucoma eye medication. The bottles always leaked when I reported that they leaked this medicine went on backorder right after I reported it Dec.2017 to Sandoz and its still on backorder. This medication ate my dogs eyes and caused her to go blind. Also,caused her to have a bad seizure last time I used it. Don't ever give this horrible eye medicine to your dog. I just had to put her down cause of her eyes. I think my dog was used as a Guinea Pig.

Dorzolamide HCL

How it works: Dorzolamide HCL inhibits carbonic anhydrase II. Inhibition of carbonic anhydrase decreases aqueous humor secretion, presumably by slowing the formation of bicarbonate ions with subsequent reduction in sodium and fluid transport. The result is a reduction in intraocular pressure (IOP).

If an overdose is suspected, flush the eye with water and call your veterinarian or veterinary emergency room.

    What should I avoid while giving Dorzolamide HCL to my pet: Dorzolamide HCL may cause blurred vision. Do not touch the dropper to any surface, including the eyes and hands. If it becomes contaminated, it could cause an infection in the eye. If you are using another eye drop in your pet, wait 10 minutes between use of different medications.

    Possible side effects of Dorzolamide HCL: If any of the following serious side effects occur, stop using this Dorzolamide HCL and seek emergency veterinary medical attention; an allergic reaction (swelling of the lips, face, or tongue; difficulty breathing; closing of the throat; or hives). Less serious side effects may be more likely to occur. Continue to use Dorzolamide HCL and contact your veterinarian if your pet experiences itching or watering of the eye; blurred vision; sensitivity of the eye to sunlight; fatigue; rash; or nausea. Side effects other than those listed here may also occur. Talk to your veterinarian about any side effect that seems unusual or bothersome to the animal.

    What other drugs will affect Dorzolamide HCL: Tell your veterinarian if your pet is being given an oral carbonic anhydrase inhibitor such as acetazolamide (Diamox), dichlorphenamide (Daranide), or methazolamide (Neptazane). Avoid applying other topical medications at the same time unless told to by the veterinarian. Other topical medications may affect the absorption or effectiveness of Dorzolamide HCL. Drugs other than those listed may also interact with Trusopt. Talk to your veterinarian or pharmacist before giving any prescription or over the counter medications, including vitamins, minerals, and herbal products.

    What should I discuss with my veterinarian before giving Dorzolamide HCL to my pet: Tell your veterinarian if your pet has ever had an allergic reaction to a sulfa based drug such as SMZ/TMP (bactrim, Septra), sulfisoxazole, sulfamethoxazole, or sulfacetamide sodium (Bleph-10), Sulamyd Sodium). Dorzolamide HCL is based on a sulfa compound and your pet may have an allergic reaction to it. Tell your veterinarian if your pet has kidney or liver disease. Tell your veterinarian if your pet is pregnant, lactating, or if you intend to breed your pet.

    Cautions: Disclose all medications you are giving to your pet to your veterinarian. If any side effects occur (swelling, hives, difficulty breathing), stop using Dorzolamide HCL on your pet and contact your veterinarian. Do not touch the dropper to any surface, including the eyes and hands. If it becomes contaminated, it could cause an infection in the eye.
