Tafluprost and Timolol Taptiqom®
Formulary

Single-use eye drops, tafluprost 15micrograms and timolol (as maleate) 5mg preservative free

  • Taptiqom costs less than preservative-free tafluprost and timolol eye drops administered separately
  • A clinical review has demonstrated that Taptiqom provides a reduction in IOP of up to 40% versus baseline.
