Buy Xalatan online
Generic name: Latanoprost.
Xalatan is a medical remedy in the form of the eye drops which are used for the treatment of glaucoma and reduction of the intraocular pressure. This drug includes the active ingredients which help to improve vision and prevent blindness. In order to treat glaucoma it is necessary to use only narrow-purpose medical drugs as the use of the wrong ophthalmological drops may worsen the disease symptoms and lead to the fatal consequences.
Mechanism of action
Xalatan is a trade mark of Latanoprost which is used in the ophthalmological practice for a long period of time. The mechanism of the action of this drug is conditioned by the selective activization of the specific FP-receptors of the eye, and as a result of this there is the increase of the outflow of aqueous humor from the anterior and posterior chamber of eye. In case of the increased outflow of the water from the eyeball the intraocular pressure is reduced and the eyestrain is decreased.
In the course of the clinical studies it has been proved that this drug does not affect the volume of the secretion of aqueous humor which is produced by the processes of the ciliary body. In order to reduce water in the chambers of the eye the active ingredients of Xalatan activate the additional uveoscleral outflow of the intraocular liquid, i.e. it will quickly leave without accumulating and causing tension on the eyeball and increase of the intraocular pressure even during preservation of the production level of this liquid.
Usage and dosage
Xalatan eye drops are prescribed for the treatment and prophylaxis of:

The more frequent use does not lead to the increase of the anti-glaucoma effect, however a patient may experience the weakening of the pharmacological effect from the treatment, and that is why it is not recommended to exceed the daily dose.
When the patient has applied the medication, the reduction of the intraocular pressure occurs in about 3-4 hours. The maximal therapeutic effect is recorded in 8-12 hours after the use of the drops.
