Headaches are common side effects of Lumigan and Timolol can cause light headedness. However if the headache is severe please let your doctor know and they may be able to give something else.

When I experience headache between applications, I apply Timolol again, judiciously, on the assumption that the medication has not reached the proper site in my eyes. It alleviates it soon.
