Product Details:

  • Product Name: Brimonidine Tartrate
  • CAS #: 79570-19-7
  • Mode of Action:

    Brimonidine is an alpha adrenergic receptor agonist (primarily alpha-2). It has a peak ocular hypotensive effect occurring at two hours post-dosing. Fluorophotometric studies in animals and humans suggest that Brimonidine has a dual mechanism of action by reducing aqueous humor production and increasing uveoscleral outflow. The topical gel reduces erythema through direct vasocontriction.

  • Pharmacodynamics:

    Brimonidine significantly lowers intraocular pressure with minimal effects on cardiovascular and pulmonary parameters. It lowers intraocular pressure by reducing aqueous humor production and increasing uveoscleral outflow.

  • Metabolism:

    Metabolized primarily by the liver.

  • Toxicity:

    Oral LD50 is 50 mg/kg in mice and 100 mg/kg in rats. Common adverse reactions of the topical gel formulation include erythema, flushing, skin burning sensation, and contact dermatitis.
