Currently in my 5th week of using this medication. Only needed in one eye that had a pressure of 18. After 4 weeks, pressure went down to 11, so it's working well and I've had no side effects.

This has made me feel nausea, followed by blurred vision, depression & red itchy eyes. I have put on so much weight and i feel tired all the time. The side effects are terrible. Would not recommend...does anyone agree?
