There is only one standard recommended dose of travoprost, regardless of your age or weight. As is always the case, do not adjust your dose unless your healthcare provider specifically instructs you to do so.
Travoprost should be stored at room temperature, away from moisture, heat, and light. Keep this and all other medications out of the reach of children.
What Should I Do If I Miss a Dose?
If you forget to take your travoprost, take your missed dose as soon as you remember. If it is almost time for your next dose, skip the missed dose and continue with your regular schedule. Do not take a double dose.
Is There a Generic Version?
Currently, there are no generic versions of travoprost licensed for sale (see Generic Travatan for more information).
