Blocadren Dosage

Before prescribing a Blocadren dosage, your healthcare provider will consider several factors, such as the medical condition being treated, other medical conditions you may have, and other drugs you are taking. You should not suddenly stop taking Blocadren, as serious problems (such as heart attacks) may occur. Let your healthcare provider know if you develop chest pain or any other problems while stopping treatment.

Blocadren Dosage: An Introduction

The dose of Blocadren® (timolol maleate) your healthcare provider recommends will vary, depending on a number of factors, including:
 
  • The medical condition being treated
  • How you respond to the drug
  • Other medications you are taking
  • Other medical conditions you have.
     
As is always the case, do not adjust this amount unless your healthcare provider specifically instructs you to do so.
 
As with all beta blockers, you should not abruptly stop taking Blocadren, as serious problems (including heart attacks) may result. Your healthcare provider will advise you about how to safely stop taking this medication. People are generally advised to slowly reduce the dose over a period of time, with careful monitoring, and to minimize physical activity during this time. Let your healthcare provider know if you develop chest pain or any other problems while stopping treatment.
 

Dose of Blocadren for High Blood Pressure

For most people, the starting Blocadren dosage for high blood pressure treatment is 10 mg twice daily. If necessary, your healthcare provider may increase this amount, up to a maximum of 60 mg total per day (split up into two smaller doses per day).
 

Blocadren Dosage for Migraine Prevention

The recommended starting dose of Blocadren for migraine prevention is 10 mg twice daily. Once your migraines are under control, your healthcare provider may recommend taking this as just a single dose per day (Blocadren 20 mg once daily). Also, if necessary, your healthcare provider may decrease this amount (to 10 mg per day) or increase your dosage (to a maximum of 30 mg per day).
