Timolol Dosage

Dose of Timolol Eyedrops

Timolol eyedrops are usually taken as one drop in the affected eye(s) once or twice daily, depending on the particular product. Timoptic and Betimol drops are taken twice a day to start, although eventually your healthcare provider might recommend taking them just once a day once your glaucoma is under control. Istalol drops are taken once daily in the morning, and Timoptic-XE gel-forming drops are taken once a day.

General Information on Your Timolol Dosage

Some considerations for people taking timolol include the following:
  • Timolol comes in the form of tablets and eyedrops. It is usually taken once or twice a day, depending on the particular product.
  • You can take a dose with a meal or on an empty stomach.
  • With the eyedrops, make sure you know exactly how to use them (there are significant variations among the different products).
  • For the medication to work properly, it must be taken as prescribed. Timolol will not work if you stop taking it.
  • In general, the tablet form should not be stopped suddenly, as serious problems (including heart attacks) may result.
  • If you are unsure about anything related to dosing with timolol, please talk with your healthcare provider.
