Cyclopentolate Hydrochloride Drug Information
Cyclogyl is used before eye examinations (e.g., refraction exams). It belongs to a class of drugs known as anticholinergics. Cyclopentolate works by temporarily widening (dilating) the pupil of the eye and relaxing the muscles of the eye.
How to Use Cyclogyl
Cyclogyl is usually applied in the eye 40 to 50 minutes before the procedure or as directed by your doctor. The dose may need to be repeated in 5 to 10 minutes. Cyclogyl is for use in the eye only. Do not take by mouth or inject. To apply eye drops, wash your hands first. To avoid contamination, do not touch the dropper tip or let it touch your eye or any other surface. If you are wearing contact lenses, remove them before using eye drops. Ask your doctor when you can start wearing them again. If you are using another kind of eye medication (e.g., drops or ointments), ask your doctor when you should start using them again. Tilt your head back, look upward, and pull down the lower eyelid to make a pouch. Hold the dropper directly over your eye and place 1 drop into the pouch. Look downward and gently close your eyes for 1 to 2 minutes. Place one finger at the corner of your eye (near the nose) and apply gentle pressure for 2 to 3 minutes. This will prevent the medication from draining away from the eye and reduce side effects. Try not to blink and do not rub your eye. Repeat these steps if your dose is for more than 1 drop or for your other eye if so directed. Do not rinse the dropper. Replace cap after use. If you are using this medicine in a child's eye(s), do not get any medicine in the child's mouth. Wash your hands and your child's hands after use to remove any medicine from them. Cyclogyl may temporarily change digestion in infants. Do not feed an infant for 4 hours after the infant's eye exam. Cyclogyl starts to work in minutes, and its effect usually lasts 24 hours or sometimes longer. Tell your doctor if you continue to have blurred vision, sensitivity to light, or dilated pupils several days after your exam.
Before using cyclopentolate, tell your doctor or pharmacist if you are allergic to it; or to belladonna alkaloids (e.g., atropine); or if you have any other allergies. Cyclogyl may contain inactive ingredients (such as preservatives like benzalkonium chloride), which can cause allergic reactions or other problems. Talk to your pharmacist for more details. Before using Cyclogyl, tell your doctor or pharmacist your medical history,personal or family history of glaucoma (angle-closure type), Down's syndrome, brain damage or spastic paralysis (in children), heart disease. After you apply Cyclogyl, your vision may become temporarily blurred. Do not drive, use machinery, or do any activity that requires clear vision until you are sure you can perform such activities safely. Cyclogyl may make your eyes more sensitive to light. Protect your eyes in bright light. Use dark sunglasses when outdoors. Caution is advised when using Cyclogyl in infants or small children because they may be more sensitive to the effects of the drug, especially mental/mood changes. If using Cyclogyl in an infant, watch the infant closely for 30 minutes after the medication is applied. Caution is advised when Cyclogyl is used in the elderly since this group may be more sensitive to side effects of Cyclogyl, especially increased pressure in the eye. During pregnancy, Cyclogyl should be used only when clearly needed. Discuss the risks and benefits with your doctor. It is not known whether Cyclogyl passes into breast milk. Consult your doctor before breast-feeding.
Your doctor or pharmacist may already be aware of any possible drug interactions and may be monitoring you for them. Do not start, stop, or change the dosage of any medicine before checking with them first. Before using Cyclogyl, tell your doctor or pharmacist of all prescription and nonprescription/herbal products you may use,eye medications for glaucoma/increased pressure in the eye (e.g., dorzolamide, pilocarpine), certain antiarrhythmic drugs (e.g., quinidine), antihistamines (e.g., diphenhydramine, meclizine), antispasmodics (e.g., dicyclomine), certain drugs for Parkinson's disease (including anticholinergics such as trihexyphenidyl), MAO inhibitors (isocarboxazid, linezolid, methylene blue, moclobemide, phenelzine, procarbazine, rasagiline, safinamide, selegiline, tranylcypromine), tricyclic antidepressants (e.g., amitriptyline). This document does not contain all possible interactions. Therefore, before using Cyclogyl, tell your doctor or pharmacist of all the products you use. Keep a list of all your medications with you, and share the list with your doctor and pharmacist.
