Alphagan (Brimonidine) is a prescription medication that is used for the treatment of open-angle glaucoma or ocular hypertension. Brimonidine belongs to the class of drugs called alpha adrenergic agonists. This medication works by reducing the amount of fluid produced by the eye and by increasing the flow of fluid out of the eye. By lowering the fluid pressure in your eyes, you will reduce the risk of vision loss, nerve damage or blindness. This medication is not recommended for use in children under 2 years old.
Canadian Pharmacy King is currently offering the brand Alphagan from Canada manufactured by Allergan and the generic Brimonidine eye drops from Canada manufactured by a different manufacturer. Alphagan is available in the strength of 0.2% eye drops.
