Combigan Eye Drops
If you have high eye pressure, your healthcare provider may recommend Combigan® (brimonidine/timolol). These eye drops are specifically designed to lower eye pressure in people with open-angle glaucoma or ocular hypertension. Generally, the medication is used when one medicine is not enough to control eye pressure.
The eye drops are used twice a day and are generally well tolerated. However, as with any medication, side effects are possible. In clinical studies, the most common side effects of Combigan included:
- Eye allergies (allergic conjunctivitis)
- Eye redness
- Eye burning and stinging
- Eye itching.
