What is Duotrav PQ Used For?

Fluid is constantly being formed and drained out of the eye. When this fluid does not drain out of the eye properly, pressure inside the eye increases.

According to the information from Novartis Pharma’s Product Monograph, DuoTrav® PQ contains two active components, travoprost 0.004% and timolol maleate 0.5%, which lower intraocular pressure (IOP) by complementary mechanisms of action.

How Does DuoTrav Work?

Travoprost belongs to a family of medicines known as 'prostaglandins'. Timolol belongs to a family of medicines known as 'betablockers'.

DuoTrav Eye Drops lower the pressure within the eye by two processes. They improve the flow of fluid from your eye(s) (travoprost) and decrease the production of fluid (timolol).

Although DuoTrav Eye Drops help to control your glaucoma they do not cure it. This medication is not to be used as initial treatment.

Generic DuoTrav PQ is now available from Canada.

The First Generic Alternative to DuoTrav PQ

Generic DuoTrav PQ, APO-TRAVOPROST-TIMOP PQ OPHTHALMIC SOLUTION, is the generic equivalent of brand name DuoTrav PQ and contains the same active ingredient travoprost 0.004% and timolol maleate 0.5%.

What are the Possible Side Effects of Generic DuoTrav PQ?

Generic DuoTrav PQ may cause the same serious side effects as brand name one. This information is listed on manufacture’s Product Monograph, and Includes:

  • It may change the color of your eyes over time -- this is more likely among people who already have some brown eye coloring.
  • It may cause stinging or itching.

Each person may react differently to a treatment. If you think this medication may be causing side effects (including those described here, or others), talk to your doctor or pharmacist. He or she can help you to determine whether the medication is the source of the problem.
