Azopt (brinzolamide) for Glaucoma, Open Angle "I have been on treatment with Azopt eye drops - once a day - for over 25 years. About 17 months ago I have started getting breathless - especially when walking on hills - out of the blue! Until that time I have never experienced such a feeling. I'm very upset about it. It's very upsetting that while treating one condition another organ eventually gets damaged."

Azopt (brinzolamide) for Intraocular Hypertension "I had retinal surgery 3 days ago. My pressure is up to 32 since the surgery so my doctor faxed a prescription for Azopt to my local Walgreens pharmacy. I am on Medicare as my primary insurance so I was not eligible for the coupon discount. Since the cost, after insurance, was $137 I was not able to purchase this drug. So sad that people on Medicare are not eligible for the coupon discount..most people with high pressure are elderly and really need the lower price."
