I live in the UK. After seeing two GP's who were very rude and told us to leave my daughters upper lip hemangioma we decided to pay for private. He suggested timolol and I have just picked up my prescription. I feel very nervous as it's near her lip. The only side effect I know it low blood pressure but my daughter will be monitored closely. Anyone have any experience with timolol? She's 12 weeks old.
Hi there! My daughter had an upper lip hemangioma but it was about 10 years ago and treatment was different back then. I'm not too sure about the timolol near her mouth- can you call the pharmacy and ask about your concerns? Or maybe call the doctors office and just double check so that way you will feel comfortable. Good luck! I hope you have success with the treatment! Shannon
