After two weeks of use my pressure lowered from 29-30 to 19-20 for which I am very grateful. After about 6 weeks of use I'm still experiencing red eyes and now have very dry nasal passages.

I used this medication as soon as it was available. Had red eyes most of the time and became very sensitive to light. Noticed weakness in hands and felt like I had the flu.

My eye dr. prescribes this to lower my eye pressure for Suspect Glaucoma. it has been working well, he is pleased with the numbers. however i do have some tendency toward red, itchy eyes - some of which can be attributed to year-round allergies. my lashes have not become long or "enhanced" unfortunately.

Comment:
Eyes are consistently blood shot red that my co-workers think I have an eye infection or I have been crying.....The redness only goes away when I stop using it for a day or two. My Dr's suggestion on my last visit when I complained was: that it's better to have red eyes than cataret......needless to say he will no longer be my eye doctor.
