Iopar-SR Capsule effectively controls ocular hypertension and certain types of glaucoma by decreasing the pressure in the eyes.

You should not take Iopar-SR Capsule if you have or ever had cirrhosis, severe liver or kidney disease, an electrolyte imbalance, adrenal gland failure, or an allergy to Iopar-SR Capsule or sulfa drugs. Also, let your doctor know if you are pregnant, planning to conceive or are breastfeeding to avoid any harmful effect on your baby.
