Tropicacyl (tropicamide ophthalmic) Disease Interactions

There is 1 disease interaction with Tropicacyl (tropicamide ophthalmic):

Major

Anticholinergics (Includes Tropicacyl) ↔ Glaucoma

Severe Potential Hazard, Moderate plausibility

Applies to: Glaucoma/Intraocular Hypertension

Anticholinergic agents are contraindicated in patients with primary glaucoma, a tendency toward glaucoma (narrow anterior chamber angle), or adhesions (synechiae) between the iris and lens, as well as for the elderly and others in whom undiagnosed glaucoma or excessive pressure in the eye may be present. Because anticholinergics cause mydriasis, they may exacerbate these conditions.
