This paper reports on the results of a comparative study between pilocarpine 2%, Guanethidine 1 % & adrenaline 0.5% combination over a 6 months period with each formulation.

This study confirms the potentiating effect of adding guanethidine to adrenaline & suggests that this combination would be a useful alternative treatment to pilocarpine 2% used alone
