Latisse Side Effects
LATISSE is contraindicated for use if there is individual intolerance or reactions of hypersensitivity to any components of the medication.
Throughout clinical trials patients experienced itchy eyes and eye redness. Latisse's side effects may include a transient darkening of the skin around the eyelids and/or brown pigmentation of the colored part of the eye (which may remain permanently).
The most frequently reported adverse events were eye pruritus, conjunctival hyperemia, skin hyperpigmentation, ocular irritation, dry eye symptoms, and erythema of the eyelid. These events occurred in less than 4% of patients.
LATISSE must be prescribed by doctor or skin care professional.
It is in consumers' interests to seek consultation from a qualified doctor to determine if they are an appropriate candidate for the treatment.
Use Latisse strictly under the direction of an opthalmologist to maximize the medication's effectiveness and manage any potential side effects.
You should immediately consult your doctor if you have any of the above side effects, as well as any vision problems, eye infections or allergic reactions or if you have a history of eye pressure problems.
If you stop using LATISSE, your eyelashes are expected to return to their previous state, darkening of eyelid skin will disappear after a few weeks or months.
Finally, there is no difference between generic Latisse / Bimatoprost and Brand one except the price.
Generic Latisse contains the same active ingredient as the brand medication and possesses the same therapeutic effect.
