In an annual eye exam, my eye doctor was concerned with the high eye pressure readings (30). She gave me the most current recommended drug to reduce eye pressure but they did not work.

This drug caused my heart rate to drop 10 points.. thankful that I have monitored blood pressure and heart rate for years so the charting was helpful in relating this drop in heart rate to the eye drops..

After just 14 days on this eye drop combined with latanoprost, I constantly felt cold, tired, and wanted to cry. I was impotent. I had insomnia and sleep disrupted by anxious dreams. I started preferring being blind than living like this. My eye pressure did plunge 75% to single digits, but I was miserable. These side affects lessened and disappeared over 4 weeks following stopping the timolol.
