What is a generic medication?
Generic medications are significantly discounted copies of brand name medication that have the same active ingredients, intended use, dosage, side effects, effects, and route of administration as the original brand name medication. In other words, generic medications have the same pharmacological effects as their brand-name counterparts. Over half of all prescribed medications are for generic medications.

Bimatoprost is used to treat high pressure inside the eye due to glaucoma (open-angle type) or other eye diseases (e.g., ocular hypertension). Lowering high pressure inside the eye can help prevent blindness. Lumigan works by regulating the flow of fluid within the eye to maintain a normal pressure.
How to Use Lumigan
Apply Lumigan in the affected eye(s), usually once a day in the evening, or as directed by your doctor. Do not use bimatoprost more often because it will not work as well. 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. Bimatoprost contains a preservative that may stain contact lenses. If you are wearing contact lenses, remove them before using your eye drops. Wait at least 15 minutes after each dose before putting your lenses back in. 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 one 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. This will prevent the medication from draining out. Try not to blink and do not rub your eye. Repeat these steps for your other eye if so directed. Do not rinse the dropper. Replace the dropper cap after each use, and keep the cap tightly closed. If you are using another kind of eye medication (e.g., drops or ointments), wait at least 5 minutes before applying other medications. Use eye drops before eye ointments to allow the eye drops to enter the eye. Use Lumigan regularly in order to get the most benefit from it. Remember to use Lumigan at the same time each day. Keep using bimatoprost even if you feel well. Most people with glaucoma or high pressure in the eye do not have symptoms.
Before using bimatoprost, tell your doctor or pharmacist if you are allergic to it; or to similar drugs (e.g., latanoprost, travoprost); or if you have any other allergies. Lumigan 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 Lumigan, tell your doctor or pharmacist your medical history,eye problems (e.g., macular edema, iritis, uveitis, lens extraction/aphakia). If you develop an eye infection or injury, or have eye surgery, check with your doctor about the continued use of your current bottle of bimatoprost. You may be advised to start using a new bottle. Lumigan may cause temporary unstable vision. Do not drive, use machinery, or do any activity that requires clear vision until you are sure you can perform such activities safely Lumigan should be used only when clearly needed during pregnancy. Discuss the risks and benefits with your doctor. It is not known whether Lumigan passes into breast milk. Consult your doctor before breast-feeding.
