1 doctor agrees

In brief: Weigh risk/benefits

Both trusopt and Xalatan (latanoprost) are pregnancy category c.
Meaning there are no adequate/well-controlled studies in pregnant women using these drugs, thus these medications should be used during pregnancy only if the potential benefit justifies the potential risk to the fetus.Trusopt has been associated with decreased birth weight when studied in rats.Review any options with your doctor.Take care.
