    Cosopt is incredibly effective. My pressure was as high as 40 due to many surgeries for uveal melanoma and subsequent complications. 2xday brought pressure to 11. However after about 5 months I became increasingly forgetful & confused to the point were I was crying almost daily seriously fearful that I had early onset dementia.

    The container is not made right. It is too hard to open. Sometimes the liquid comes out as you twist off the top. Sometimes there is not enough liquid in the container. It stings a lot when you put in the liquid. I almost think I will faint. I don't know yet how it is working on lowering my pressure readings. The packaging is definitely no good. It costs too much.

    The individual plastic packs are difficult to use. If you squeeze too hard all liquid comes in one drop; too soft the liquid gathers into one drop. Some vials had No liquid at all. The fear of losing out an application with each use is not worth the risk.

    My pressures were in the upper 20s while on Xalatan alone. The doctor prescribed Cosopt in addition, and after a month I am down to 18 in both eyes. The only issues I've had are mild and occasional and include eye stinging for a few moments after application and a slight bitter taste in the back of my throat.
