Xalatan Eye Drops
Xalatan Eye Drops Information
Xalatan (Latanoprost) belongs to a class of medications called prostaglandin analogs. Xalatan reduces pressure in the eye by increasing the amount of fluid that drains from the eye. It is used to treat people with open-angle glaucoma and intraocular hypertension (increased pressure in the eye).
We currently have the brand from Canada manufactured by Pfizer and the generic Latanoprost manufactured by Sandoz. It may come from other suppliers. Xalatan is an eye drop available in 0.005 %/2.5 ml.

at 2° to 8° C (36° to 46°F). Once you open the bottle for use, it may be stored at room temperature
in a cool place for up to 25°C (77°F) for 6 weeks. You do not need to keep it refrigerated.
