After trying several treatment options, my glaucoma is now contolled with this drug. As a pharmacist I know that it is just trial and error to find an individual treatment that works.

I am a post heart attack and triple bypass patient and post stroke patient with resulting Epilepsy, using Phenobarbital for seizures. I experienced rapid heart beat and skipping beats, with this medication just like Betoptic and four other eyedrops Glaucoma medications. I have spent thousands of dollars for repeated emergency room visits from these drops and other drops due to the cardiac side effects. Dr. prescribed 2 puffs of Marijuana 3 times a day and it works without dangerous or costly side effects. But I do experience one side effect, I get hungry. So I do the marijuana puffs before meals. Side effect controlled.

Although this drug has worked fine for me, I am switching to Brimonidine (Tartrate) Opht solution .2% because it is less expensive. Ir is curious my doctor said this is ok, but my mail order Rx provider does not consider it a generic equivalent.Web MD also associates Alphagan P to Brimonidine Opht so this confirms what the doctor is saying. Yet the mail order pricing for Brimonidine is that of a generic. Have your doctor specifically change your Rx because your mail order provider will not automatically change your Alphagan P to what is effectively the generic equivalent.

My Dr just started me on this drop to lower my pressure from 11 to a target of 7-9. Already on Cosopt & Zioptan (new), which is excellent, as it contains no preservatives that irritate my eye.

After my PARS PLANA VITRECTOMY WITH MEMBRANE PEEL AND FLUID AIR?GAS EXCHANGE surgery was performed, this drug was prescrbed. One application and my eye turned red and burned like fire. I called the doctor and was told to immediately stop this medication. Now I have what the doctor described as 'optic nerve damage'.
