Apraclonidine Side Effects

What should I watch for?

Visit your doctor or health care professional for regular checks on your progress. Report any serious side effects right away. Stop using this medicine if your eyes get swollen, painful, or have a discharge, and see your doctor or health care professional as soon as you can.

You may get drowsy or dizzy. Do not drive, use machinery, or do anything that needs mental alertness until you know how this drug affects you. Do not stand or sit up quickly, especially if you are an older patient. This reduces the risk of dizzy or fainting spells. Alcohol can make you more drowsy and dizzy. Avoid alcoholic drinks.

If you wear contact lenses, take them out before putting drops in the eye. Contact lenses may be put back in 15 minutes after putting the drops in your eyes.

Wear dark glasses if this medicine makes your eyes more sensitive to light.
