Comment:
I've been taking Methazolamid for several years and I know that w/o my eye pressure would be a lot worse, like it used to be before, with only eye drops Cosopt, Alphagan, Lumingan. Unfortunately, the big side effect to this medication is that I feel very sleepy, very tired to the point that I don't have energy to do finish what I'm doing many times.
