Atropine Sublingual Drops
Not many: Any eye drop can have side effects, although patenol is usually very well tolerated. Some expected side effects might be stinging or burning feeling when used, possible mildly blurred vision, redness of the eyes after use. These are all fairly rare with patenol, in my experience. ...Read more

No: This is a prescriptive only iris dilator. Why would you want to use this without the advice of your ophthalmologist anyway? It is one of the common chair side drops used for diagnosis and occasional treatment. ...Read more

Dry secretions: Atropine drops help dry up secretions that a patient is unable to clear on their own. Secretions can pool in the throat and cause the breathing to become noisy.

How often and for how long should I be taking Atropine drops for iritis? When should the discomfort and light sensitivity go away?
Depends: You probably are seeing an ophthalmologist (I hope not an optometrist) for this potentially serious medical condition. Atropine helps by relaxing the internal eye muscles and also helping to prevent internal adhesions (synechia) between the iris and the lens. Atropine helps as long as the inflammation continues which depends mostly on the response to steroids which I assume you are also taking. ...Read more
I am taking Atropine drops for iritis, is it normal to have a bad taste in my mouth after taking the drops? The taste causes me to gag.
Yes, and use another: technique of placing your finger on your lower puncta (opening to tear duct) to reduce it going down your nose into your throat. That might help! ...Read more
Does anyone know if atropine drops can correct an eye that has peripheal vision loss from a hemispherectomy?
Dr. Prescribed several eye drops including atropine for pain caused by increased eye pressure but i've heard atropine is not good for glaucoma.
Different type: Glaucoma of the classic type (open angle) requires medication and sometimes surgery. Glaucoma termed "acute" is due to an anatomical issue in the eye which can be precipitated by pupillary dilators such as atropine. Your eye doctor has no doubt ruled this out as a possibility so that Atropine in your case would be safe to use. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Up to 2 weeks: Atropine can cause pupillary dilation for up to 2 weeks. Eye drops typically used during examination have a shorter duration of effect lasting for a few to several hours depending on the exact drug and concentration used and individual responses to the drug ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I took atropine eye drops to ease with corneal abrasion a week ago..Any meds i can take to make its dilating effects go away faster?
Not really: Remember that the visual loss does not originate in the eye ( think of a normal video camera as the eye) but in the brain ( think of a bad video cable sending only half the message). Opening up the lens aperture wider does not send an image through the defective portion of the cable. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Do you know if atropine eye drops can control or keep myopia from increasing? My daughter's nearsightedness is getting worse and the optometrist suggested she use atropine eye drops to slow it down.
Learned something!: At first glance I questioned the soundness of this advice but upon research it appears this is an acceptable approach now in Pediatric near nearsightedness. Just be sure to keep your follow up appointments to monitor the medications effect. http://eyeworld.org/article-atom-trials-find-atropine-eye-drops-reduce-myopia-progression ...Read more
Dad dx'd w/corneal abrasion & hyphema after accidentally hit in eye. Dr. Rx'd Tobradex, atropine drops, alphagan drops and pain med. How long to heal?
Dad's doctor's help:
This is a question best asked to the treating doctor. When you go to see a doctor(your dad in this case), that is the first question which should be raised....that is the reason for his visit.
But my guess is it should heal in 2-3 weeks. Usually the pain goes away first, that means it is healing well and should be healed in 1-2 weeks. ...Read more

What can be done for people who have a difficult time upping allergy shot dose due to local reaction?Lower dose? Repeat 1 dose often?Sublingual drops?
Depends: At least 2 studies showed that lowering the dose due to local reaction actually leads to more reactions. On the other hand, one must balance the discomfort against the potential gains. I would ask the patient to take an antihistamine about 2 hrs prior to see if this helps. The next question is whether the dose should be raised any further if there has been sufficient improvement. ...Read more

Atropine injections: "Conditions in which inhibition of postganglionic cholinergic nerves are undesirable, such as glaucoma and tachycardia. Also contraindicated in asthma, because the parenteral dose which might relieve asthma would have an excessive drying effect upon mucous plugs in the bronchi. Prostatic hypertrophy, while not a contraindication, requires special attention to signs of urinary retention." See: ...Read more
