Good evening, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. Epinephrine or adrenaline is a hormone that normally exists in the body and comes from the adrenal glands which are located above the kidneys. These substances act on nerves called sympathetic nerves, and have various effects on the body, such as increasing the work of the heart, increasing blood sugar levels, increasing blood pressure, and making the body sweat more.
In eye drops, epinephrine is useful in reducing the fluid content in the eye thereby reducing the pressure in the eyeball. This is especially useful for those with glaucoma in their eyes. In addition, this drug can also be used during eye surgery.
What you need to know is not to use this drug without a prescription and without a doctor's supervision.
