The Time Interval Between Consumption Of Alcoholic Drinks When Treating Eyes Using Thymol?
Excuse me doctor
Hello Lee Pyro, Thank you for the question.
Thymol is eye drops containing thymolol, which works to treat glaucoma. Glaucoma is a condition of increased pressure inside the eyeball that causes damage to the eye nerve. This drug serves to reduce the production of fluid in the eye so that pressure in the eyeball can be reduced. You are not recommended to consume alcoholic beverages while using this drug because it can aggravate the side effects that arise from the use of timolol. Some of the common side effects of using timolol are slow or irregular heartbeat, headache, dizziness, nausea, difficulty breathing, eye irritation, and double vision. Please avoid the consumption of alcoholic drinks. Continue to use this medicine according to the eye doctor's recommendations. If you experience any annoying side effects, do not hesitate to consult a doctor for further examination and treatment.
Hopefully this information helps you.
