"I was allergic to Dorzolamide which made my eye's itch and redden all around the eyelids, Dr. changed me to Cosopt that has no additives and the itching and redness left! I use them daily with no problem for Glaucoma :-)"

"I Started using Cosopt 2x daily and after a few days I experienced really bad chest pain/ spasms, digestive pains/discomfort and itchy eyes but I continued use and after a few more days the discomfort seemed to improve and I felt like my normal self. 1 month later when I opened a NEW package, on the 3rd or 4th I started having chest pain/spasms, upper and lower back discomfort, anxiety, depression and I was extremely emotional to the point of tears. I stopped the drops for a few days and the symptoms improved.! I’ll restart the drops and see what happens and I will definitely inform my doctor. Not sure if it’s effective I’ll see the doctor in a few weeks for pressure check. "

"I find it burns for a minute after instilling. Something I'm trying to get used to. I also get a weird taste in the back of my mouth. Dr suggested using artificial tears first then using the cosopt. I use the unit dose drops which is great for travel."

"I really don't know if this product works as my appointment is in 2 weeks. This drug was added to the first drop originally prescribed. First drug no issue. This one is hard to drop due to the viscosity so sometimes I get a lot, sometimes hardly anything. Also, as someone else mentioned, about 30 minutes after use there is a terrible taste in the back of my throat. This drug is prescribed twice a day but you have to wait at least 5 min before using any other drops. This causes me to just skip it and I end up using it only once per day. I'll be anxious to hear what my doctor says. I'd rather just have the laser surgery than use any drops."
