General Information on Dosing With Metipranolol

Considerations for people taking metipranolol include the following:
 
  • This medication comes in the form of an eye drop. It is applied to the affected eye(s) twice daily.
     
  • In order to prevent contamination of the drops, do not touch the tip of the dropper to any surface, including the surface of the eye.

  • For the medication to work properly, it must be taken as directed.
     
  • If you are unsure about anything related to your dosage, please talk with your doctor, nurse, or pharmacist.
