Pharmacological action of

Anti-glaucoma drug. Betaxolol is a selective beta1-blocker without internal sympathomimetic activity. It does not have a membrane stabilizing (local anesthetic) effect.

Topical application of betaxolol reduces both elevated and normal intraocular pressure, due to a decrease in the production of intraocular fluid. The onset of the hypotensive effect is usually observed 30 minutes after using the drug, and the maximum decrease in ophthalmotonus occurs in about 2 hours. After a single instillation, the effect on the ophthalmotonus persists for 12 hours.

Betaxolol, in comparison with other beta-blockers, does not cause a decrease in blood flow in optic nerve, miosis, accommodation spasm, hemeralopia (unlike myotics).



Betaxolol is highly lipophilic, as a result of which it penetrates well through the cornea into the anterior chamber of the eye, Cmax in the anterior chamber is determined 20 minutes after instillation. When applied topically, systemic absorption is low, and the plasma concentration is below the threshold (2 ng / ml) for detection.

Distribution and excretion of

Plasma Protein Binding – 50%. T1 / 2 – 14-22 hours. It is excreted by the kidneys (15% unchanged). Permeability through the BBB and the placental barrier is low, secretion with breast milk is negligible.

Dosage and administration

Instill 1-2 drops in the conjunctival sac 2 times / day. In some patients, stabilization of intraocular pressure occurs within a few weeks, so it is recommended to control intraocular pressure during the first month of treatment.

If the required level of intraocular pressure is not achieved with Betoftan monotherapy, additional therapy should be prescribed.

From the respiratory system: dyspnea, bronchospasm, bronchial asthma, respiratory failure.

Drug Interaction

Concurrent use of Betoftan and adrenaline for ophthalmic use may result in the development of mydriasis in some cases.

When using the drug Betoftan in combination with drugs that deplete catecholamines (such as reserpine), an increase in effects such as BP and bradycardia may be observed.

The concurrent use of Betoftan and beta-blockers for oral administration increases the risk of side effects (both local and systemic) due to the additive effect.

Caution should be exercised when co-administering Betoftan and adrenergic psychotropic agents due to possible enhancement of their action.

When both muscle relaxants and hypoglycemic agents are given, their effects may increase.

When combined with sympathomimetics, an increase in their vasoconstrictor effect is noted.

If needed, it can be used in combination with other topical ophthalmic drugs. In this case, the interval between their use should be at least 10 minutes.


There have been no reports of overdosage with Betofan.
