Reviews for Rocklatan

Dolly · Taken for less than 1 month August 9, 2019

“1 drop per eye, along with 2 drops Combigan; which I previously used exclusively. Been using Rockatan for 3 weeks. Super red eyes the first 3 days; very noticeable and people were commenting. Rockatan Is also irritating my eyes. The side effects are huge for me. Next appointment is 2 weeks away, we’ll see if Rockatan has helped lower pressure. Too many side effects....I want out!”

“Per my Doctor's suggestion, I started using Roclatan from March 10 through June 12. Had a terrible impact to my eye- redness, tear, bloodshot eye and pressure reached as high as 35 and 28 in the left and right eye. My doctor performed a laser in my left eye, but the pressure did not drop as much. When asked the Doctor, he agreed that the Rocklatan drop is not found to effective for many patients and I am one of them. So I went back to using XALATAN and my pressure is gradually dropping, but much damage is done by the ROCKLATAN. It is also a tier 3 category for insurance reimbursement, thus I paid $353 for one month's supply. DO NOT USE ROCKLATAN just because the Drug company and medical professionals are advocating for this eye drop.”

“Have been using Rocklatan for 3 weeks for glaucoma and have had minor red eyes. Tomorrow I will see Dr to determine effectiveness/ Saw Dr and this drug works for me. Lowered pressure by 3 points with only red eye side effects.”

“I used Rocklatan one night. The next day my eyes were completely red. Eyelids swollen so I couldn't see. I did not use it again. Day 3 I still can't see. Eyes aren't as red. I went back to what I was using. May have to have surgery to correct the glaucoma”

“This medication caused my eyes to be red and dry from day one. After 5 weeks my eyes became not only red but unbearably itchy and swollen. I stopped putting the single drop per night as prescribed. My eyes are still red, itchy and swollen a week after I've stopped using Rocklatan. My optometrist said he will prescribe a different eye drop that has a lower rate of side affects once these side affects are gone.”

“I took Rocklatan for 3 weeks then saw my eye Dr. My pressure was lower by 3 or 4 points. So we thought it was going to work. Then when I had been using the drop for 5 weeks my eyes were so dry, red & itchy I had to start using lubricating drops 2-3 times a day after another week I called my Dr & he took me off Rocklatan. I had been using Latanoprost & timolol for a couple years already, with no side effects. After being off Rocklatan for a week, my eyes are still Dry & itchy & still red.”

“I began Rocklatan in the Fall of 2019 to lower eye my pressures because the laser surgery was starting to wear off after 2 yrs. Initially I did have severe redness after the first instillation, but it resolved dramatically by the following morning and never had it again. It must be kept in the refrigerator, and the coolness of the drop is actually refreshing! My pressures dropped from 23 & 24 down to 14 & 15 and have remained at those readings. It is an expensive drug, but I am fortunate to only pay $125 for a 90-day supply via my insurance's mail order pharmacy. No side effects at all.”

“I experienced glaucoma open angle in both of my eyes- red eyes, burning, watering, very extreme itchiness of the eye lashes, eye lids and tear ducts, a feeling something was crawling in my eyes and in my tear ducts. I'd get a gritty feeling like a speck of sand was in my eye. My nasal area by my tear duct itched. My skin felt very sensitive when water would touch my eye area and forehead area. I could not apply any kind of cream on my eye area without it becoming irritated, eye pain at times. My reaction started about about two months after I started using Rocklatan. My doctor just recently took me off of Rocklatan and slowly things are improving. My eye pressure did drop using Rocklatan when taken with another drop, I just happened to have an allergy reaction to Rocklatan.”

“After about 6 weeks bloodshot eyes followed by unbearable itching and finally puffy bags under eyes drooping to cheeks. Horrible I stopped immediately. I had perfect skin before I look terrible now. Will these bags go away? Wish I could attach a picture.”
