Indications

Side Effects

This drug is generally well tolerated. Eosinophillia has been reported in some patients.

Use in Pregnancy & Lactation

No adequate and well-controlled studies are established in pregnant women. Nispore eye drop should be used during pregnancy only if the potential benefit justifies the potential risk to the fetus.
