User Comments about Tropicamide
30 Jun 2011 I have been given tropicamide 1% for a number of years usually at about 6 month intervals to facilitate eye examinations and on the last but one occasion it was administered i suffered a breathing problem like breathing in air but nothing was being absorbed and i remember it was a long night of conscious breathing, this was the only occasion that i have experienced a problem with having tropicamide administered i remember also having a strong cup of coffee at the same time so i wonder if that may have caused an interaction. hope this is of help to anyone
