Atropen P Eye Drop


Overview

Introduction

Atropen P Eye Drop is used to treat myopia and inflammation in the eyes (uveitis or iritis). It is also used for the eye examination and diagnose eye problems like blurred vision or squint in children.

Always wash your hands before using Atropen P Eye Drop. Use only the number of drops that your doctor has prescribed. If you wear soft contact lenses, remove them before using the drops and wait for at least 15 minutes before putting them back in.

You should use this medicine regularly to get the most benefit and it’s best done at the same time each day. If you want to stop using it, consult your doctor first.

The most common side effects are irritation or pain in the eye, watery or dry eyes, and skin rash. There are other, less common, side effects affecting other parts of the body, some of which may be serious. Read the leaflet that comes with the medicine and consult your doctor if you're bothered by any side effects.
