Atropine Sulfate is an ophthalmic medication used to help stop spasms of the iris by temporarily paralyzing the muscles in charge of dilation. This can be useful when doing eye examinations, as well as for cats and dogs suffering from corneal ulcers, uveitis, and other eye conditions that might be causing discomfort.
Atropine Sulfate should not be taken by pets with, or predisposed to, glaucoma. Pets with a known sensitivity to drugs of this nature should not be given atropine sulphate. In cases where the ocular lens separates from its attachments within the eye, atropine sulfate should not be used. Atropine sulfate should not be taken with anticholinesterase, antihistamines, benzodiazepine, corticosteroids, phenothiazine, sympathomimetics, thiazide diuretic, amitraz, disopyramide phosphate, meperidine, metoclopramide, nitrofurantoin, primidone, procainamide, or quinidine.
