Xlash (Bimatoprost) Ophthalmic Solution
What is Xlash (Bimatoprost) Ophthalmic Solution used for?
Xlash (Bimatoprost) is prescribed to patients without eyelashes or who have an inadequate amount of eyelashes. The medication stimulates the existing lashes and follicles to produce thicker, darker, and healthier eyelashes. The eyelashes may eventually return to their original state in length and thickness without continued use. This medication may also be prescribed for the treatment of glaucoma or other conditions causing high pressure inside the eyes. This medication should be administered using specialized applicators.
How should I use Xlash (Bimatoprost) Ophthalmic Solution?
Always use Xlash (Bimatoprost) according to your doctor`s instructions to get the safest and most effective results from treatment. One daily application is normally administered by gently shaking the bottle to mix its contents, applying one drop to the applicator, and gently brushing it through the upper eyelash. Repeat the process on the other eyelash using a new applicator. Do not apply the medication to the lower eyelashes. Dispose of the applicator after each use. Always observe the medication before each use to make sure it is not cloudy or discoloured as this may indicate contamination. Ask your pharmacist or doctor any questions you have about the medicine to ensure the correct administration.
What are the side effects of Xlash (Bimatoprost) Ophthalmic Solution?
