Combigan eyedrops are a combination of medications used to treat glaucoma and other eye conditions. This is accomplished by decreasing intraocular pressure. Brimonidine and Timolol, the two medicines that make up Combigan, are combined when one isn’t enough. Because the danger of significant side effects is higher in children under the age of two, it is not advised for them.

- Allergies to certain medical ingredients

Dizziness is a side effect of Combigan. Alcohol and/or weed may both make you dizzy. Do not operate machinery, drive, or engage in any other tasks that need alertness or clear eyesight. While using Combigan, try to stay away from alcohol. If you want to use cannabis, talk to your doctor first.

To avoid contamination, wash your hands before using this medicine. If you use contacts, remove them as well. Because some of the preservatives used in Combigan eyedrops can be absorbed by contact lenses, wait 15 minutes before putting them in.
Pull down your lower lid and tilt your head back, gazing up, to create a pouch in which to apply for the medicine. Apply one drop twice a day, twelve hours apart, on a daily basis. Close your eyes and stare down once you’ve applied for the medicine. Apply gentle pressure with your finger to the inner corner of the eye where Combigan was used. Don’t rub your eyes and keep them closed. If necessary, repeat on the opposite eye.
To prevent contamination, do not rinse the dropper; instead, replace the cap after each use. Use eye drops before ointments and wait at least ten minutes between eye medicines. To get the most out of Combigan, use it on a regular basis. The majority of people who have glaucoma or excessive eye pressure do not have any symptoms.
