Use Lumigan 0.01 % one drop once a day in both eyes. 5.0 ml. bottle nearly empty in 28 days but pharmacy says that my drug insurance plan says that it is too soon to refill the presription. How many drops do you get out of a 5.0 ml. bottle of Lunigan?
21 Feb 2012
A medical drop is 1/12 mL. Therefore there are 12 drops in 1mL. Since you were given a 5mL bottle that would be 60 drops in the bottle divided by 2, total drops in eyes per day, means a total supply of 30 days. If you are really at day 28 you should be able to get a refill. However if they are using a metric drop which is 1/20 mL then you are nowhere near ready for your refill as the bottle should last 50 days. You need to ask your pharmacist what unit of measure they are using for your eye drops. They you should call your insurance company and find out what the problem really is.
