What You Need to Know About Bepreve
When and How to Take BepreveGeneral considerations to keep in mind when taking this medicine include the following:
- The medication comes in the form of an eye drop. It is usually used in each eye twice a day.
- In order to prevent contamination of the medicine, do not touch the tip of the dropper to any surface, including the surface of the eye.
