I have been using the drops for about two weeks. I have had very bad reactions to the drug which ended up putting me in the hospital with severe chest pains. Doctor has taken me off but my liver enzeymes are high and I have to have more testing.

In one week my pressures went down 5 points. The only concern I have is in the 2nd week ,I am getting red blotches under my eyes. Is anyone else experiencing this?

Until I read someone else's review I didn't realize that the terrible GI problems I started having were due to the Travatan. Terrible upset stomach, flatulence and diarrhea to the point where I'm afraid to leave the house.

Although the drug has been effective in correcting my eye pressures, I have had a reaction to it. It has made my face break out and I was wondering if anyone els had this reaction?!! If so, how did you treat the rash?

Bad experience with Travatan Z. Although the drops didn't burn, my eye became fiery red and about 2 hours after instillation, I developed severe eye pain - a throbbing ache. The eye felt bruised, like I'd been punched in the eye. Also had severe sensitivity to light. No visual problem. Happened each of the 4 days I used it, so it didn't get better with time. Now on a different med.

Comment from: 55-64 Female on Treatment for 1-2 years (Patient) Published: September 13

Travatan has been effective for me for the last two years with the reduction in the pressure,but with side effects like itching and redness in the eye. However, recently my wife noticed hair growth under my eyes. I did not believe that Travatan did it until I read one of the reviewers had the same effects. Not sure what to do now until I see my doctor next month.

Worked fine in lowering the pressure in my eyes (from late 20s/30) to 14/15 but I experienced growth of eye lashes (not that this can categorically be attributed to the taking of this drug) to the extent that they made my eyes sore and red (apart from looking very feminine!). For anybody else suffering similarly, try cutting eye lashes with nail scissors. Not easy but did the trick for me. Changed to another drug. A shame.
