    I began with an IOP of 30 in each eye. I was prescribed Latanoprost once daily in each eye. After a month, Latanoprost had no effect. I was switched to Combigan. After 3 weeks using Combigan 2X daily, my IOP was down to 19 in each eye. I introduced 1 drop in each eye in the morning, and again in the evening about 12 hours later.

    Combigan has lowered the intra ocular pressure in both eyes. However, I feel very tired and my blood pressure drops for 3-4 hours after each use.

Hurts to get out of bed and in and out of car and even to get up after sitting for an hour or more. I didn't relate it to Combigan and thought I may be getting arthritis but it was from neck to hamstrings. Has anyone else experienced the same symptoms? I am an overal ... Show Full Comment

    Used drops for 5 days and developed heaviness in chest, as well as numbness in right hand and right leg felt asleep (like when you sit on your leg and it falls asleep). These sensations only lasted 5-10 seconds but are scary. Eye Dr. advised to discontinue drops and he thought I could have a heart attack it was not the drops. The symptoms occurred again after I stopped the drops (2 days) so I we ... Show Full Comment
