INTRODUCTION

BELLPINO ATRIN 1% contains Atropine which belongs to the group of medicines called Mydriatics and Cycloplegics. It is used to treat certain forms of eye inflammation such as uveitis or iritis. It can enlarge the pupil of the eye which makes it as a suitable diagnostic aid prior to certain eye examinations (such as cycloplegic refraction). It can also be used in the diagnosis of certain eye problems such as blurred vision among young children (6 years or below) and in children who have squint eyes and corrects amblyopia (poor eyesight in one eye) in children having poor eyesight.

Atropine is an anticholinergic medicine. It works by blocking the effects of a chemical messenger called acetylcholine in the eyes. As a result, it relaxes the eye muscles and causes the pupil to dilate (mydriasis) which helps in the diagnosis of eye problems (refractive errors). It also reduces eye inflammation by blocking the movements of eye muscles. It corrects amblyopia by making the healthy eye temporarily blur, which forces the brain to focus harder using the weaker eye. Before and during treatment with BELLPINO ATRIN 1%, your doctor would regularly monitor the intraocular pressure (pressure in your eyes) to avoid the risks of any unwanted side effects. Children using BELLPINO ATRIN 1% should be monitored by their doctor for at least 30 minutes after application.

BELLPINO ATRIN 1% is not recommended for use in patients with glaucoma. It should be used with caution in children having brain problems and/or fever. It is also not recommended for use in pregnant and breastfeeding women unless considered necessary. Do not wear contact lens while using BELLPINO ATRIN 1%. Make sure to remove them before applying BELLPINO ATRIN 1% and wait for at least 10 minutes before reinsertion. The most common side effects of using BELLPINO ATRIN 1% are photosensitivity, eye irritation, redness, itching or swelling. Contact your doctor if any of the symptom worsens.
