Cosopt Eye Drops

Cosopt® (dorzolamide/timolol) is a drug commonly prescribed for the treatment of high eye pressure related to certain medical conditions -- namely ocular hypertension and chronic open-angle glaucoma. This medication works by reducing the amount of fluid the eye produces, which in turn reduces pressure.
 
If you wear soft contact lenses, you must remove then prior to using Cosopt eye drops and then wait at least 15 minutes before putting the lenses back in. In addition, if you use other kinds of eye drops as well as Cosopt, be sure to separate the doses of each medicine by at least 10 minutes.
 
In general, this medicine is well tolerated; however, side effects are possible. In clinical trials, commonly reported reactions included eye redness, a burning or stinging sensation in the eye, and a bitter or unpleasant taste in the mouth.
