Product Details
Generic Name: Brimonidine ophthalmic
Brand Name: Alphagan P
Alphagan P also known as Brimonidine is a medicine used for curing ocular hypertension or open-angle glaucoma and acts through increasing the amount that drains from eye through uveoscleral outflow and decreasing synthesis of aqueous humor. As a cure for glaucoma, Alphagan P is usually given in eyedrop form. Alpha 2 agonists inhibit the activity of adenylate cyclase reduces cAMP. On the other hand, peripheral alpha 2 agonist activity results in vasoconstriction of blood vessels. This vasoconstriction might enlighten the acute reduction in aqueous humor flow.
