"Originally diagnosed with Glaucoma, had laser eye surgery but over the years eye pressures increased and prescribed Xalatan Latanoprost no significant problems. But when chemist swapped for a generic make 2 years ago I had problems feeling queasy, palpitations, waterworks weakness, generally not feeling well. Changed prescription immediately, back to Xalatan, no problem. This happened again yesterday, given generic Latanoprost and thought I would give it a further try, big mistake, terrible nights sleep and will be going back to pharmacist immediately for change back to Xalatan! But if I had a choice I would not take any of these drugs, all very powerful."

"I'm absolutely content with this drug. Originally my doctor prescribed me latanoprost and i've been sick quickly. I had a severe sore throat and my eyes were strongly red all the time after just 10-12 days of using it. Than I came back and I told about all side effects. After that conversation my doctor prescribed me Xalatan and I am really content now! It's my third week of using it and i don't have any side effects. No sore throat, no headache, no weakness, no muscle pain, no redness. My eyes were just a little bit red at the beggining but now they are all ok."

"About 4 years ago my eye pressure was discovered to be 21 with no nerve damage. I had exams every two years prior and normal. Luckily it was discovered early and I was given Xalatan, one drop each eye daily. There was a little burning, at first, but tolerable and only lasted a minute or so and not every time. Now, very rare. After monitoring every six months, the first two years, and now only yearly exams needed as pressure is at a steady 11. No nerve damage. Though I must take this medication forever, it sure beats the alternative - developing glaucoma, irreversible damage, and blindness. Additionally, not missing any exams is for one's own benefit. Note: getting yearly physicals and exams is proactive in keeping healthy and any abnormalities can be detected early on and treated before greater damage is done. This is a simple task and may no one hear their doctor say, "If we had caught this earlier...". Take care of yourself and be safe!"

"I'm doing just fine, but then again I have a high tolerance for most things. Also, would much rather have a little burning than blindness."

"Works well so far, doesn't sting too much. Pretty expensive though"
