Sandoz Eye Drops Recalled in Canada

Filed July 21st, 2008 amy

Health Canada is warning consumers not to use the prescription drug in 0.25% and 0.5% strengths, because some bottles may contain more of the active ingredient (timolol maleate) than indicated on the label, exposing patients to an increased risk of adverse events. The recalled eye drops are taken for treatment of increased intraocular pressure (high fluid pressure inside the eye) and glaucoma.

Potential adverse events patients may experience from the recalled eye solution may include red eye, eye irritation, inflammation of the eyelids and/or cornea, drooping of the upper eyelid, double vision, dizziness, headache, abnormally slow heartbeat, abnormally low blood pressure, shortness of breath, difficulty breathing, and cardiac failure. Patients taking either Sandoz Timolol Ophthalmic Solution 0.25% or 0.5% eye drops should discontinue use and consult their health care practitioner immediately to ensure that treatment of the original condition (intraocular pressure) is not interrupted. Consumers should return the product to their pharmacist for safe disposal.
