This medication has been working for me, however, the side effects include mild flu-like symptoms, loss of energy (for about 3 hours after taking drops in am)burning eyes, sensitivity to light.

After two days on Combigan, I had shortness of breath, dry mouth, was extremely tired and felt "drugged" - then I realized it was the eye drops making me feel so bad. I had no idea an eye drop could affect a person in such a serious way.

About 1 hour after putting drops in the eyes, I fall asleep for about 2 hours if I am sitting in a chair. If I am not home, I feel an overwhelming fatigue. Also my mouth and throat are extremely dry and I have had laryngitis ever since beginning this drug 9 months ago. I am going to ask my doctor to prescribe something else - the side effects have made me so tired I can't function. My eye pressures, however, have gone from 48 to 16.

Side effects seem to outweigh benefits and am not sure it should be used for 'low pressure' glaucoma. I experienced severe redness in my eyes, drowsiness, droopy lids and a TIA!!!

Eyelids become heavy and generates sleep after using it twice a day for glaucoma.

Experienced many side effects. Don't know if the benefits outweigh the side effects.Looking for another eye drop to reduce the glaucoma without these side effects

I am in training for a marathon and after starting this medication, my pace decreased considerable and I am ravaged by tiredness, yet I havenĀ“t been sleeping that well at night. The tiredness has affected my job and life in general. Have reduced my dosage to one drop at night. will see how that works.

sometimes there seems to be a minor eye irritaion that develops (less than 10% of the time) several hours after use. I'll gladly accept that for the signficant decrease in pressure that I have achieved

Comment from: Drew, 55-64 Female on Treatment for less than 1 month (Patient) Published: April 17

Experienced dizzyness within 1 day and continue to do so. Application stings and twice a day is uncomfortable.

Comment from: 13Spikes, 45-54 on Treatment for 1-6 months (Patient) Published: February 07

Cons: I am weak, sluggish, tired and sleepless with a stomach ache. The drops burn on application and give me red eyes. Pros: There is no more migraine pain, even though I get all of the symptoms. It lowered my eye pressure greatly, but I have lost quite a bit of weight even though already thin. I worry that the stomach is getting worse, or causing a new problem.
