Have used many different drops with still have high pressure. Tried Azopt but had lots of side effects including shortness of breath, light headed, low energy, dry, irritated, red eyes, metalic taste. Also could not tolerate Lumegan but have done fine with Xalatan and Timoptic XE.

One month using drops, pressures went from about 14 to 12, each eye. Except I would experience slight headache with the morning dose. I'm going to try Timolol,see if I tolerate it better.

I have been using azopd for a month and instead of decreasing my eye pressure it went up. At the beginning, the doctor said the drops were super good. In conclusion, this drops did not work for me. ps. remember to shake it well before use. No everybody tell you that.
