Brief Answer: The eye drop is not the cause Detailed Answer: Hi and thank you so much for this query. I am so sorry to hear about this blood pressure and heart rate numbers that seem out of the normal. I have reviewed Vigamox and it is not a possible cause of these abnormal numbers. Though they are not in line with the usual numbers, I will suggest that we monitor a little more before concluding on whether to consider using medications to address this. Also, what drugs do you take for hypertension? Has there been any change? I strongly suggest that these increased values are consistent with the anxiety that we all develop going through surgery and they would return to usual values after this. This eye drop is a local drug and suggesting that it would affect other drugs or cause far reaching effects on the heart. In all, continue with this drug. The increased numbers are consistent with anxiety related to surgery. Things should return to normal pretty soon. If they should fail, then we shall take a closer look but less like to be vigamox. I hope this addresses your query fully. Thank you so much for using our services and please feel free to ask for clarifications if need be. I wish you the best of health. Dr. Ditah, MD.
