User Comments:

For Glaucoma, Open Angle: “I hate this drug and all the side effects and yet I’m told it is the only one I can take. I’m actively searching for someone to help and have learned there is a preservative free Timolol but have been unable to find it. I hope to get help before my heart gives out.”

I’ve experienced dry eyes, blurred vision, possible ringing in my ears, prominent red veins in white of eyes, and flashes.Does anyone else use this? If so any side effects? Tell me what your experience has been.”

For Glaucoma, Open Angle: “Has anyone noticed that Timolol now comes in new packaging and the familiar yellow top that security closed the bottle is missing. I find the the current top cannot be securely closed. To me, this is extremely dangerous and is counter to what the website warns in preventing infection due to insecurely closed vials.”

Istalol (timolol) for Glaucoma, Open Angle: “This has been the best medication for my glaucoma. Stings a little, but has controlled my pressures. I have not been able to use any of the drops such a Alphagan, Xalatan, etc. as I have an adverse reaction, i.e. migraine, drying and scratchy eye, very sensitive to light, etc.”

Timoptic (timolol) for Intraocular Hypertension: “Whenever I put Timoptic in my eye, it makes me nervous. It feels like something is in my eye; my vision becomes blurred, I have no energy. It has the same side effects as my blood pressure medication, (Lopressor) because it is in the same class, a BETA BLOCKER.”
