This medication is administered to the eyes through intraocular solution such as an eye drop. It is essential to wash your hands before administering the medication to avoid infections.

When administering the eye drops, tilt your head backwards then pull the lower eyelid downwards. Position the dropper just above the eye. The dosage is determined by the doctor and is based on the patient’s condition. Squeeze the dropper for a drop of the medication and gently close the eye. If more drops are required, repeat the procedure in five-minute intervals.

Common side effects due to Carbaminoylcholine chloride usage include teary eyes, stinging or burning sensation, sweating, headache, dizziness, nausea and low vision. Though rare, retinal detachment may occur in some patients and can lead to blindness. If any of these side effects occur, seek medical attention quickly. Before using Carbaminoylcholine chloride, it is important to consult with your doctor and undergo a thorough check up of your retina to determine if there is a risk of retinal detachment.

If you are using other eye medication like suprofen, flurbipron ketorolac and diclofenac, you must inform your doctor prior to the use of Carbaminoylcholine chloride. This is important since some medications may react when used together with Carbaminoylcholine chloride.
