Reviews for Travoprost ophthalmic

Jessie · Taken for 6 months to 1 year December 15, 2020

Travatan Z (travoprost): “I have been using Travatan Z for the past year and it seem to be working OK at first outside of having red eyes. I’ve had pink eye from this medication, severe sensitivity to light to the point sunglasses did not help. The feeling of something in both of my eyes, the pain was excruciating. I do not recommend this drug. Short term maybe, long term absolutely not! My intraocular pressure was lowered but besides that the side effects was a bit much. I do not recommend this drug.”

Travatan Z (travoprost): “I used Travatan for many years until the preservative was changed, and I had an allergic reaction. After probably trying most other eye drops that were on the market, with not much luck, other than experiencing more allergic reactions, I had numerous laser treatments to keep the pressures down for a short interval. Then about 6 years ago I discovered Travatan Z, and my eye specialist gave me the chance of trying it. I've no problems with Travatan Z, and my eye pressures are usually under 15. I'm very happy with Travatan Z, and hope nobody will ever try to change the formula.”

Travatan Z (travoprost): “Lasted two weeks and the side effects were beyond my limits. Blurred vision, redness, sensitivity to sunlight almost blinded me. Set off problems with my BP medications with muscle aches, balance problems. Moved over to Zioptan and after three weeks ended up a 911 call. Was taking Triamterene/Hctz, Pravastatin, Lisinopril, and Asprin at the time. Six weeks after stopping eye drops - back to normal and consistent BP of 128/75 at age 72.”

Travatan Z (travoprost): “My opthamologist, three years ago, prescribed one Timolol drop in the morning and one Travatan Z drop in the evening in each eye. This after my pressure registered 22 one time. Since then, no pressure above 15, no pain, no nothing.”

Travatan (travoprost): “I have been using Travatan for two months now for my glaucoma and my eyes are extremely red and dry. My opthalmogist days that is because of the preservatives in it, but I cannot find, nor am sure if I can afford the preservative free version.”

“I have been using this for the last 10 years. Now the bottle has a very small amount of liquid and not last for a month. Also, compared to the prescription fee we have to pay is not worth it. I'm very disappointed with the product. People can't afford two bottles for one month. I am very disappointed..No value for money.☹️”

LAW · Taken for 1 to 6 months January 3, 2021

“The package that is used is almost impossible to open. The price of the eye drops have zoomed up in price, the solution and the plastic packaging is now very difficult to open and the amount of solution is only 1/2 full with 2.5 ml. While old packaging was a small challenge, the new is much harder. The date on the box I have is 11/27/2020, lot RR1515, sn 854671. I will take it back to the store next pharmacy next week and maybe to the Dr. Office to have them call someone or change medication.”
