What is a Generic Drug?

A generic drug is a copy of the brand-name drug with the same dosage, safety, strength, quality, consumption method, performance, and intended use. Before generics become available on the market, the generic company must prove it has the same active ingredients as the brand-name drug and works in the same way and in the same amount of time in the body.

The only differences between generics and their brand-name counterparts is that generics are less expensive and may look slightly different (eg. different shape or color), as trademarks laws prevent a generic from looking exactly like the brand-name drug.

Generics are less expensive because generic manufacturers don't have to invest large sums of money to develop a drug. When the brand-name patent expires, generic companies can manufacture a copy of the brand-name and sell it at a substantial discount.


Alphagan is prescription eye drop medication for ocular hypertension or open-angle glaucoma treatment. It works to prevent the risks associated with these eye conditions, including vision loss, nerve damage, or blindness. Alphagan eye drops work by lowering pressure in the eye to limit the amount of fluid formed and allow better draining of existing eye fluid so that the buildup of pressure doesn’t occur to the same extent. This is a proven effective glaucoma medication and works well for eye hypertension too but is not suitable for use with children under the age of two.

You can buy Alphagan eye drops with a doctor’s prescription at your local pharmacy, but your best Alphagan eye drops price will be when you order medication online from Canada Drugs Direct.


The standard Alphagan dosage is to administer these medicated eye drops 3 times a day, but take this medication exactly as directed by your doctor and indicated in your prescription.

  1. Tilt head back, look upward and pull down lower eyelid to form a pouch.
  2. Hold the dropper right above eye and insert one drop, as directed by your doctor.
  3. Look downward and close eyes gently for 1 to 2 minutes.
  4. Place one finger at the corner of your eye (near nose) and gently apply pressure. Don’t blink or rub your eye.
  5. Repeat these steps for the other eye if needed.

Do not rinse the dropper and put dropper cap back on dispenser bottle after each use.


The active ingredient in Alphagan eye drops is Brimonidine.


Ages two and up.

Tell your doctor if you have any history of blood vessel diseases like thromboangiitis obliterans, blood circulation disorders like cerebral or coronary insufficiency, depression, severe heart disease, kidney disease, liver disease, Raynaud's disease, or orthostatic hypertensions (low blood pressure when standing).

This drug may make you dizzy, so it is best to limit or avoid intoxicating substances while taking it. They may make dizziness or disorientation worse.

Use medication with caution if pregnant and be sure to discuss with your doctor before doing so.


There is the possibility of drug interaction risks between Alphagan and certain Rx medications, including beta-blockers like atenolol, metoprolol, and timolol eye drops/ digoxin / high blood pressure medications like clonidine and terazosin / tricyclic antidepressants like amitriptyline / opioid pain or cough relievers like codeine and hydrocodone / drugs for sleep or anxiety like alprazolam, lorazepam, and zolpidem / muscle relaxants like carisoprodol, cyclobenzaprine / antihistamines like cetirizine and diphenhydramine.

You should always inform your doctor of all medications you are currently taking before receiving a prescription and proceeding to buy Alphagan eye drops.

Side Effects

Side effects from Alphagan or other medicated eye drops for glaucoma or ocular hypertension are uncommon, but some Alphagan users may experience eye discomfort, itching or redness, blurred vision, dizziness, dry mouth, bad taste in mouth, drowsiness, or tiredness. If any of these side effects are experienced, you should stop use and consult with your doctor again to discuss open-angle glaucoma treatment or ocular hypertension treatment alternatives.
