I am curious about eye drops used to control increased intraocular pressure, such as Latanoprost. The medication has succeeded (for me) in significantly reducing the elevated pressure and brought it down to normal levels. I have two related questions, please.
If one were to discontinue the drops, how soon, on average, would the pressure return to its elevated levels? Does it elevate within 24 hours, say, or could that process take a few days? Second, if a patient is experiencing some side-effects with the drug (but has had much worse side-effects with alternative drugs), would an every-other-day regimen be worth trying, to see if that might reduce the side-effects without compromising the effectiveness of the drug?
