Since Triesence is injected into the eye from which little is absorbed into the bloodstream, few interactions with medication taken orally are expected. However, you should tell the doctor who will administer Triesence about all medicines, supplements, vitamins and herbal remedies that you take before it is administered. Especially mention all other eye medications that have been prescribed by other doctors.
