Bimatoprost Actavis eye drops 0.03% contain bimatoprost, a synthetic analogue of prostamide used to lower intraocular pressure in glaucoma, which can lead to blindness if untreated.  

Bimatoprost Actavis general information

What is Bimatoprost Actavis used for?

Bimatoprost Actavis eye drops 0.03% are used to lower pressure within the eye, known as intraocular pressure (IOP) in the treatment of glaucoma, which is raised IOP caused by a build up of fluid (aqueous humour) in the eye.  The increased IOP can cause damage to the optic nerve fibres that lead out of the back of the eye to the brain and may lead gradual loss of sight, starting with peripheral vision and eventually to total blindness in that eye.  Bimatoprost Actavis eye drops increases the drainage of aqueous fluid out of the eye which decreases IOP and prevents loss of sight.  Bimatoprost Actavis eye drops are also used to treat ocular hypertension (increased IOC without ocular nerve damage) to lower IOC.  Bimatoprost Actavis eye drops 0.03% (also known as Latisse and Lumigen) are also used to treat hypotrichosis, which is when eyelash growth is abnormal or not sufficient to give you adequate or enough eyelashes to allow you to grow longer, thicker and darker eyelashes. 

How does Bimatoprost Actavis work?

Bimatoprost Actavis eye drops contain bimatoprost, a synthetic analogue (mimic) of the naturally occurring prostamide, which is a prostaglandin-like chemical that has distinct and specific actions in various tissues of the body, including potent ocular hypotensive (pressure reducing) activity.  The build up of pressure in the eye that is seen in glaucoma is caused by a blockage in the draining system for the eye fluid called aqueous humour, which is produced continually to maintain normal eye pressure.  Bimatoprost in Bimatoprost Actavis eye drops binds to the same receptors in the eye as prostamide and increases the flow of aqueous humour out of the eye through the spongy tissue called the trabecular network, which is the conventional drainage route for the aqueous, by reducing the tonographic (pressure-sensitive) resistance to outflow of aqueous humour.  As the flow of fluid into and out of the eye becomes balanced again, the pressure in the eye is lowered and this reduces the risk of damage to the optic nerve and loss of sight that can happen if glaucoma is left untreated.

What does Bimatoprost Actavis contain?

Bimatoprost Actavis eye drops contain the active ingredient bimatoprost 0.3mg/ml (0.03%), a synthetic analogue of prostamide used to lower intraocular pressure (IOP) in glaucoma.  They also contain sodium phosphate dibasic heptahydrate, sodium chloride, citric acid monohydrate, purified water and the preservative benzalkonium chloride; sodium hydroxide and hydrochloric acid are added to adjust PH.  

Growing long eyelashes with Bimatoprost Actavis

Bimatoprost Actavis eye drops (also known as Latisse and Lumigen) is used to treat hypotrichosis, which is when eyelash growth is abnormal or not sufficient to give you adequate or enough eyelashes.  Latisse eye drops contain bimatoprost, a synthetic analogue (mimic) of a naturally occurring chemical called prostaglandin, which is thought to be involved in hair growth and works by increasing the length of the active hair growth phase.  Bimatoprost Actavis eye drops can help you grow eyelashes that are longer, fuller and darker than they were before. 

Treating glaucoma with Bimatoprost Actavis

Bimatoprost Actavis eye drops 0.03% contain bimatoprost, a synthetic analogue (mimic) of the naturally occurring prostamide that has potent ocular hypotensive (pressure reducing) activity and is used to treat glaucoma.  The build up of pressure in the eye that is seen in glaucoma is caused by a blockage in the draining system for the eye fluid called aqueous humour, which is produced continually.  Although aqueous humour is important for maintaining normal eye pressure and providing nutrients for the eye, increased production or decreased drainage from the eye increases IOP, which can cause damage to the optic nerve fibres that lead out of the back of the eye to the brain and may lead gradual loss of sight.  Bimatoprost in Bimatoprost Actavis eye drops increases the flow of aqueous humour out of the eye through the spongy tissue called the trabecular network, by reducing the tonographic (pressure-sensitive) resistance to outflow of aqueous humour.  As the flow of fluid into and out of the eye becomes balanced again, the pressure in the eye is lowered and this reduces the risk of damage to the optic nerve and loss of sight that can happen if glaucoma progresses untreated.  

What are the side effects of Bimatoprost Actavis?

The most commonly reported side effects when using Bimatoprost Actavis eye drops 0.03% include: red congested eyes (conjunctival hyperaemia), growth of eyelashes, itching, irritation or inflammation of the eye (conjunctivitis) and eyelid (blepharitis), sensitivity to light, an increase in colouring or pigment of area around eye, visual changes, eyelash darkening, darkening of the iris, headache, dizziness, infection (primarily colds and upper respiratory tract infections).

When should Bimatoprost Actavis not be used?

You should not use Bimatoprost Actavis eye drops 0.03% if you:

  • are allergic to bimatoprost or any of the ingredients in Bimatoprost Actavis eye drops
  • are pregnant, intend to become pregnant or breast feeding
  • have liver, kidney or respiratory disease
  • are wearing contact lenses, you should remove your contacts and replace them after using Bimatoprost Actavis eye drops

How should Bimatoprost Actavis/Latisse be used for growing eyelashes?

You should use your Bimatoprost Actavis eye drops 300mcg/ml once nightly, by applying to the to the base of the upper eye lashes of each eye. (An applicator is not supplied but a very fine eyeliner brush is suitable) Do not apply to the lower lid. Also avoid touching other areas with Bimatoprost Actavis eye drops, as this may result in unwanted hair growth. Before applying your Bimatoprost Actavis eye drops, ensure that your face is clean and makeup and contact lenses are removed. If you are using an eyeliner brush as an applicator, ensure that it is clean before each application. Place one drop of Bimatoprost Actavis close to the tip of your brush and immediately draw the brush across the skin of the upper eyelid margin where the eyelashes meet the skin, starting from the inner part of your lash line to the outer part of your lash line. Any extra solution should be blotted with a tissue. Should any Bimatoprost Actavis solution get into your eye, there is no need to rinse out the eye.This will not harm the eye. You may reinsert your contact lenses 5 minutes after application of the Bimatoprost Actavis. To avoid contamination by bacteria known to cause infections, ensure that the tip of the bottle or brush does not come into contact with your fingers or any other matter. You should begin to see results within 8 weeks with maximum eyelash growth by 12-16 weeks. If you stop using your Bimatoprost Actavis eye drops, your eye lashes will return to their original condition, within a few weeks or months. If you are using Bimatoprost Actavis for reducing your intraocular pressure or if you have glaucoma, you should not use Bimatoprost Actavis eye drops for eyelash growth. 

How should Bimatoprost Actavis be used for glaucoma?

You should use your Bimatoprost Actavis eye drops by applying one drop into the affected eye, once daily, preferably in the evening, and following the instructions provided.  If you are wearing contact lenses, you should remove them before applying your Bimatoprost Actavis eye drops and then replace them.  You should continue to use your Bimatoprost Actavis eye drops daily for as long as recommended by your doctor, which may be for several months or years, as they will help maintain normal eye pressure but will not cure glaucoma.  If you are using Bimatoprost Actavis for reducing your intraocular pressure or if you have glaucoma, you should not use Latisse eye drops for eyelash growth. 

Can you use Bimatoprost Actavis/Latisse together for glaucoma and eyelash growth?

If you are using Bimatoprost Actavis eye drops 0.03% or other prostaglandin analogs for reducing your intraocular pressure or if you have glaucoma, you should not use Latisse eye drops for eyelash growth, as using both together may interfere with the reduction in intraocular pressure (IOP) that you need to achieve.

How long should you use Bimatoprost Actavis/Latisse?

You should use your Latisse eye drops 0.03% continually for 12-16 weeks for maximum eyelash growth and you will begin to see results within 8 weeks.  If you stop using your Latisse eye drops, your eye lashes will return to their original condition, within a few weeks or months. 

How long should you use Bimatoprost Actavis?

You should continue to use your Bimatoprost Actavis eye drops daily for as long as recommended by your doctor, which may be for several months or years, as they will help maintain normal eye pressure only while using Bimatoprost Actavis eye drops but will not cure glaucoma. 

Missed dose of Bimatoprost Actavis

If you miss a dose of Bimatoprost Actavis eye drops take it as soon as you remember, unless it is time to take the next dose, then skip the missed dose.  Do not take a double dose.

How should Bimatoprost Actavis be stored?

You should store your Bimatoprost Actavis eye drops in a cool place where the temperature stays below 25°C and always replace the top on the bottle to prevent contamination.  Discard the bottle of Bimatoprost Actavis eye drops 4 weeks after opening.
