Drug Precautions ::
Due to systemic absorption of ophthalmic preparations, adverse reactions associated with systemic administration of beta-blockers may occur. Abrupt withdrawal of beta-blocker may cause exacerbation of angina, and myocardial infarctions have occurred in some cases. Ophthalmic Timolol should not be used alone for treatment of angle-closure glaucoma. beta-blocker therapy may increase sensitivity towards allergen in patients with history of atrophy or severe anaphylaxis reactions. Safety and efficacy have not been established in paediatric patients.

Exact mechanism of ocular hypotensive effect is unclear, but it is thought to be related to reduction of aqueous humour formation. beta-blockade also causes lowering of BP.
Drug Interactions ::
Concomitant admin w/ reserpine may increase hypotension and bradycardia. Additive effects w/ other antihypertensives (e.g. hydralazine, methyldopa). Increased ?-adrenergic blockade (e.g. decreased heart rate) w/ quinidine. Rebound HTN due to abrupt withdrawal of clonidine. Hypotensive effect may be antagonised by NSAIDs (e.g. indomethacin, ibuprofen).
