Side Effects

Eye redness/discomfort/itching/dryness or eyelid redness may occur. If any of these effects last or get worse, tell your doctor or pharmacist promptly.

It is possible for hair growth to happen in other areas of your skin where this medication often touches. Be sure to wipe any extra medication after applying it to the eyelash margins.

Remember that this medication has been prescribed because your doctor has judged that the benefit to you is greater than the risk of side effects. Many people using this medication do not have serious side effects.

When the eye drop form of this medication is applied directly into the eyes to treat glaucoma, it may slowly (over months to years) cause brown discoloration of the colored portion of the eye (iris). This form of bimatoprost used to improve eyelash appearance could also have this effect. Also, this medication may cause eyelid changes or a darkening of the skin around the base of the eyelashes. After stopping use, eyelid skin darkening should go away after several weeks to months. However other side effects (such as discoloration of the iris) may be permanent. Tell your doctor if any of these side effects occur.

Tell your doctor right away if you have any serious side effects, including: eye pain, suspected eye infection (discharge, unusual redness, swelling of eyes), rapid vision changes (such as loss of vision).

A very serious allergic reaction to this drug is rare. However, get medical help right away if you notice any symptoms of a serious allergic reaction, including: rash, itching/swelling (especially of the face/tongue/throat), severe dizziness, trouble breathing.

This is not a complete list of possible side effects. If you notice other effects not listed above, contact your doctor or pharmacist.

Uses

This medication is used to treat patients with not enough or inadequate eyelashes. Bimatoprost makes the eyelashes more noticeable by causing more eyelashes to grow and making them longer, thicker, and darker. Bimatoprost is similar to a natural chemical in the body (prostaglandin). Bimatoprost is also used to treat glaucoma. If you are already using or are directed to use bimatoprost to treat glaucoma, be careful not to get this eyelash medication into your eyes. Getting extra bimatoprost in your eyes may make it less effective for treating glaucoma. Talk to your doctor or pharmacist for more details.

If any medication gets into the eye, do not rinse your eye. It is not likely to cause any harm if this medication gets into the eye, because it is the same medication that is used in the eyes to treat glaucoma.

Use this medication regularly to get the most benefit from it. To help you remember, use it at the same time each evening. Do not use more of this medication than recommended.
