Cosopt (dorzolamide/timolol) is a prescription eye drop. It contains two different active ingredients: a carbonic anhydrase inhibitor (dorzolamide) and a beta blocker (timolol). It is approved to treat high eye pressure in people with chronic open-angle glaucoma or ocular hypertension.

Lumigan (bimatoprost ophthalmic solution) is a prescription medication approved to lower eye pressure in people with the following eye conditions:

High eye pressure (known medically as ocular hypertension) & Open angle glaucoma.

Both eye drops treat the same ailments of the eye, Cosopt treats chronic open-angle glaucoma being the only difference, however please double check it with an doc/pharmacist.

Thanks so much for your imput. My husband also has, trouble sleeping and he can't see a regular doctor for another two weeks. Would benadryl or one of my ambients sleep aids harm him?
