Alphagan is medical remedy that used in ophthalmology for treatment of diseases connected to increased pressure inside eyes. It is produced in form of eye drops, for higher pharmacologic effectively and maximal quick decreasing of disease symptoms.
Active substance is Brimonidine. It has anti-glaucoma pharmacologic action that lays in direct stimulation of adrenoreceptors. Hypotensive action of active substance is provided due to decreasing of formation and increasing of outflow aqueous liquid through uveoscleral tract. Stimulation of adrenoreceptors provides improvement of aqueous liquid outflow. It doesn’t provoke dilated pupils or narrowing of vessels on micro vessels level in xenotransplantation of human retina.
However, active components of Alphagan controls amount of eye liquid section. By reducing of production of aqueous liquid, it is managed to reduce voltage on eyeball, by which to increase effectiveness of treatment course.
Maximal effect of reducing eye pressure is reachable after 2 hour of use. Drug is metabolized primarily in liver. Brimonidine and its metabolites are eliminated by liver.
Despite data which proves insignificant influence of Alphagan on whole arterial pressure, it is required carefully to use it in patient with several diseases: orthostatic hypotension, severe cardiovascular diseases, which are accompanied by heart failure, cerebrovascular disease, renal insufficiency \ hepatic failure, depressive disorder.
State of patients should be strictly controlled with given states, in case deterioration of patient’s state it is required to deny drug use.

I bought Alphagan on the recommendation of my doctor. I have recently had ophthalmologic examination and my doctor told me that I have the initial stage of the open-angle glaucoma. While it is not late I decided to buy the most effective medicines in order to stop this disease. The doctor told me that Alphagan is one of the best anti-glaucoma drugs and I believed her. I don’t know how this medicine will be effective in the future but I have notice that my eyes do not hurt in 3 weeks of the treatment and the vision disorders disappeared.
I have been using Alphagan for more than 3 years due to the indicated diagnosis – glaucoma. It is a dangerous disease with the increase of the intraocular pressure which may lead to blindness without the treatment. I am constantly under the supervision of ophthalmologist and I have deep examination every 3 months, and it allows me to compare early usage of the medicine. The difference is obvious. The influence on the respiratory and cardiac system which were affected by the previous medicines were reduced. I felt better, and the most important is that Alphagan helped to regulate the intraocular pressure. At the moment I dilated the range of the morning exercises, and I go to the gym two times a week. I work at the computer mainly and I don’t feel any discomfort in the eyes. I thank the manufacturers of Alphagan for such excellent medicine.
The constriction of the eye vessels was diagnosed in my mom after the surgery. For glaucoma mom takes Alphagan every day for one year already. She feels better but she doesn’t stop the treatment. It is great that it’s possible to buy Alphagan in online pharmacy with the discount, and therefore we can afford this medicine. The doctor told that these are the results and it will be possible to stop the treatment and see the results soon. We wait when the mom will recover and she will forget about glaucoma.
