  • if you are allergic to tafluprost or any of the other ingredients of this medicine (listed in section 6).

Warnings and precautions

Talk to your doctor, pharmacist or nurse before using SAFLUTAN.

Please note that SAFLUTAN may have the following effects and that some of them may be permanent:

  • SAFLUTAN may increase the length, thickness, colour and/or number of your eyelashes and may cause unusual hair growth on your eyelids.
  • SAFLUTAN may cause darkening of the colour of the skin around the eyes. Wipe off any excess solution from the skin. This will reduce the risk of skin darkening.
  • SAFLUTAN may change the colour of your iris (the coloured part of your eye). If SAFLUTAN is used in one eye only, the colour of the treated eye may permanently become different from the colour of the other eye.
  • SAFLUTAN may cause hair growth in areas where the solution comes repeatedly in contact with the skin surface.

Tell your doctor

  • if you have kidney problems
  • if you have liver problems
  • if you have asthma
  • if you have other eye diseases.

Children and adolescents

SAFLUTAN is not recommended for children and adolescents below 18 years due to a lack of data on safety and efficacy.

Other medicines and SAFLUTAN

Tell your doctor or pharmacist if you are taking, have recently taken or might take other medicines.

If you use other medicines in the eye, leave at least 5 minutes between putting in SAFLUTAN and the other medication.
