Frequently asked questions about timolol

What is timolol?

Timolol is a prescription medication used to treat high blood pressure (hypertension). This medication helps relax blood vessels and increases the supply of blood and oxygen to the heart. Timolol may be prescribed alone or in conjunction with other medications as a treatment for hypertension. In addition to medication, you may be prescribed certain lifestyle changes to help control blood pressure (such as exercise and dietary adjustments).

Along with its use as a treatment for high blood pressure, timolol may be prescribed for the treatment of severe migraine headaches.

What is timolol used to treat?

Timolol is primarily prescribed as a treatment for high blood pressure. This medication may be used alone or in conjunction with other medicines/ therapies to lower blood pressure and prevent further complications such as heart disease, heart attack, and stroke.

High blood pressure is a dangerous – potentially fatal – condition in which the heart is met with too much resistance from blocked or narrowed arteries as it tries to pump blood and oxygen around your body. When not treated, high blood pressure can lead to an array of serious health issues including heart attack, heart failure, stroke, and many more complications. Nearly ½ of Americans have high blood pressure, and heart disease is the leading cause of death of people in the United States.

A migraine is a headache disorder that generally affects one side of the head and causes intense pain. These throbbing, severe headaches are usually accompanied by nausea and vomiting. They may also cause acute sensitivity to light and sound. Migraine headache episodes can last anywhere from hours to days, and the pain might be severe enough to prevent you from going about your normal activities.

There is no singular cause of migraines. Neurology researchers continue to study the role that various brain chemicals and hormones play in causing migraines.

Some triggers that may cause a migraine episode include:
- Hormone changes in women
- Daily use of pain management medication or headache medication
- Stress
- Caffeine use
- Sensitivity to light or loud sounds
- Sensitivity to food additives or ingredients (such as aged cheese, nitrates, or alcohol)
- Changes in weather conditions
- Exhaustion or physical overexertion
- Dieting or missing meals
- Dehydration

How does timolol work?

Timolol is classified as a beta-blocker, a common form of heart pressure medication. These medications work by blocking the transmission of certain nerve impulses. When stimulated, nerves release a chemical called epinephrine (also known as adrenaline). Adrenaline can cause blood vessels to tighten and narrow. Narrowed blood vessels make it more difficult for blood to be pumped through the body, leading to an increase in blood pressure.

By preventing epinephrine’s effect on blood vessels, timolol keeps blood vessels relaxed and open which reduces blood pressure and minimizes the risk of cardiac conditions such as heart attack, heart failure, and coronary artery disease.

It’s important to note that timolol can help manage high blood pressure and migraines, but will not cure these conditions. Because of this, timolol is commonly prescribed with other forms of medication or therapy (such as dietary and lifestyle adjustments).

What are the common side effects of timolol?

Timolol has been shown to cause some side effects. Talk to your health care provider if these adverse reactions do not go away within a few days.

Common side effects reported while taking timolol include:
- Headache
- Dizziness/ lightheadedness
- Drowsiness
- Cold hands/ feet
- Heartburn


This is not a complete list of adverse effects – though these are the most common. Seek medical attention right away if you experience symptoms such as swelling, difficulty breathing, rash, weight gain, or chest pain while taking timolol.

As with all prescription medication, be sure to inform the prescribing doctor about any medical conditions you have been previously diagnosed with, as well as any medication/ supplements you are currently taking before taking timolol. Timolol can interact with other forms of medication and substances, causing potentially serious side effects. In addition, let your doctor know if you are pregnant or plan on becoming pregnant before starting treatment with timolol. If you become pregnant while taking timolol, inform your health care provider immediately.

What is the typical starting dose of timolol?

For adults managing high blood pressure, timolol is prescribed as a 10 mg tablet to be taken twice a day. This dosage may increase depending on your need and how well you tolerate the medication.

Do not discontinue or increase your dosage of timolol without consulting your doctor first. Take the medication exactly as prescribed, and inform your doctor if you begin to experience any side effects while taking the medication.
