... I have open angle glaucoma and have either had reactions to prior drugs or they have proved to be ineffective. I am told my eye pressure needs to be kept below 12. However,upon checking this drug on the internet & talking to my pharmacist I have discovered that it is an old RX w/ a slew of nasty side effects including possible detached retina. Not sure if I shold use it. Anyone else had experience w/ this drug? Were the side effects bad? Has anyone suffered w/ a detached retina due to this drug?
