 3  Glaucoma Right eyelid itchy, red, swollen, scabby. I thought at first it was skin cancer, but from the comments here it seems a fairly common side effect. Not happy about this. It brings the eye pressure down, but still ... F 56 2 months

 1  glaucoma Lot#82809 is causing around eye irritation. So far only Lot#82809 is causing the problem. Reminds me of B&L contact lens wash problems of many years ago. I cannot contact Allergan directly. M 75 8 months

 1  Glaucoma Swollen, itching and cracking skin around eyes, inflamed and swollen tear ducts, inflamed eyes. All symptoms stopped within one week after halting Combigan. Combigan did reduce eye pressure beyond what Lumigan did, but I had a reaction to something in the Combigan. This reaction is mentioned as being of low likelihood in the enclosure. "Rare" does not mean "Never"! M 76 8 months

 1  Ocular pressure My hair has begun falling out after a month on combigan following cataract surgery. Apparently this is a little known side effect. Have been switched to xalatan so am hoping I stop shedding soon! F 50 1 months

 1  Glaucoma After 15mnths developed red eyes, itching eyelid margins, tear ducts and other areas around the eye, particularly below the eye where the skin became red and raw. Caused Uveitis and Iritis which are being treated with steroid and dilatory drops which in turn are raising the eye pressures and the replacement (preservative-free) Cosopt drops are not strong enough to counteract this. Will probably end up needing surgery. M 66 2 years

 3  temporary use to lower pressure Dry mouth, bad taste in mouth, feel a bit tired. Am getting some palpitations but not too serious as a deliberate cough or two stops them. I was a chronic A-Fibber for 10 years before surgical cure (mini-maze surgery 4 years ago), so am quite familiar with heart palpitations. I am only taking this temporarily in one eye after cateract surgery because corticosteroid drops caused high ocular pressure. Would not want to take Combigan long term. M 65 7 days

 1  glaucoma I am exhausted almost immediately upon administering the drops. I feel drained, lethargic, no energy at all. I took Combigan 2 weeks ago for 2 days, felt exhausted, gloomy, so I stopped the drops and felt great once again. I waited 2 weeks, tried again, and immediately felt drained, just like before. I also take Xalatan with no ill effects. I will continue with that and substitute Dorzolomide for Combigan. I have 3 children, so I can't sleep all day, I need my energy back. F 52 2 days

 4  high IOP Puts me to sleep immediately, so I take it right before bedtime. Been on it 2 years and only now have been experiencing redness in one of my eyes only. Stopped the drops in that eye only and redness goes away. Until now I've had no problems with it. F 40 2 years

COMBIGAN  (BRIMONIDINE TARTRATE; TIMOLOL MALEATE):  This combination medication is used to treat high pressure inside the eye due to glaucoma (open-angle type) or other eye diseases (e.g., ocular hypertension). Lowering high pressure inside the eye helps to prevent blindness. This product contains brimonidine and timolol. These medications are used together when 1 drug is not controlling the pressure inside the eye. Brimonidine works by allowing better fluid drainage from within the eye and also by decreasing the amount of fluid formed in the eye. It belongs to a class of drugs known as alpha agonists. Timolol is thought to work by decreasing the amount of fluid formed in the eye. Timolol belongs to a class of drugs known as beta blockers. This medication is not recommended for use in children less than 2 years old due to an increased risk of serious side effects. Ask the doctor or pharmacist for more details.   (Sources: U.S. Centers for Medicare Services, FDA)
