Does echothiophate ophthalmic solution interact with drugs?

Since echothiophate ophthalmic solution is applied to the eyes from which little is expected to be absorbed into the bloodstream, few interactions with oral medications are expected. However, you should be sure to tell your doctor about all of the medicines and supplements you take, especially other eye medicines and over-the-counter cold remedies. Drug interactions are still possible and can reduce the medicine's effectiveness or produce undesired effects.

In addition, the solution can interact with organophosphate chemicals found in gardening products, such as herbicides, pesticides and fertilizers. If you work with these products, make sure you follow proper precautions such as wearing masks and eye protection.
