HOW IT IS USED
Latisse® is applied nightly, directly to the skin of the upper eyelid margin at the base of the eyelashes using the accompanying applicators. Blot any excess solution beyond the eyelid margin.

WARNINGS AND PRECAUTIONS
Concurrent administration of LATISSE® and IOP-lowering prostaglandin analogs in ocular hypertensive patients may decrease the IOP-lowering effect. Patients using these products concomitantly should be closely monitored for changes to their intraocular pressure. Pigmentation of the eyelids and iris may occur. Iris pigmentation is likely to be permanent. (See product insert for more details). Most common adverse reactions (incidence approximately 3% – 4%) are eye pruritus, conjunctival hyperemia, and skin hyperpigmentation. (6.1)
