Just one drop at night in right eye and had difficulty breathing through the night and the next day. The next day I felt sluggish like I was getting a cold. Stopped using it and will notify doctor.

I have a heart condition. The drug was causing my eyes to get "pink" and very watery. Also I could not walk 1/5th mile before I got a slight, funny feeling in my lower throat and I didn't want to continue my walk. Saw my cardiologist and he arranged for a nuclear test which was abnormal. He prescribed nitro pills to take when I had that feeling. (Also catherization to which I said No.) After 4 months my eyes were getting more "pink" so I stopped taking Combigan for 4 days and I could walk OK for 2 miles. I think there is a causation beween Combigan and irritation of heart problem. Seeing my Cardiologist tomorrow. (As an aside, I was instructed to place one drop in each eye before blocking teat duct area. I can see how that would allow part of first drop to enter one tear duct and get into my system before I applied a drop to the second eye.) J.M.

Taking combigan 2 X day for 2 months. Prescription has been working eye pressure went down fro, 47 to 23. Feel tired for 2-3 hrs. Have to lay down and sometimes can not focus and nausea. Thoughts are not the way they should be. Can not continue taking this medication, really where is the quality of life if you are tired all of the time and can not focus. Going in for surgery.

Comment from: So Tired, 55-64 on Treatment for 6 months - 1 year (Patient) Published: March 07

I started using this 6 months ago and felt great until about last month when I have been experiencing flu like symptoms, dizziness, drowsiness and extreme fatigue in the afternoons. My doctor recently ordered blood tests to rule out other illness and to help him make a conclusive decision that it is really Combigan's side effects.

Comment from: shopper, 45-54 on Treatment for 1-2 years (Patient) Published: November 12

Combigan completely knocks me out within 40 minutes. I have switched to taking it at night, because Isaac unable to function. I try to take it at 9pm. Then at midnight. Then if I wake up, once more no later than 4am. I take the lumigan in the late morning. This is better than taking connivance in the day. However I wake up hungover. But it's better than falling asleep in my office.
