Cosopt Eye Drops
What is Cosopt?
Dorzolamide and timolol are combined in Cosopt eye drops. Dorzolamide lowers the pressure inside the eye by reducing the amount of fluid in the eye. Timolol is a beta-blocker that also lowers intraocular pressure.
Cosopt is not known to be safe or effective in children under the age of two.
If you have a history of asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), or a significant cardiac problem such as “AV block,” sluggish heartbeats, heart failure, or if you have recently had a heart attack, you should not use Cosopt eye drops.
Before taking this medicine
If you are allergic to dorzolamide or timolol, or if you have a history of asthma, COPD, chronic bronchitis, or emphysema; or heart failure, sluggish heartbeats; heart block or “AV block” (2nd or 3rd degree); or heart muscle injury, you should not use Cosopt eye drops (such as from a heart attack).
Tell your doctor if you have any of the following conditions to ensure that Cosopt is safe for you:
a sulfa drug allergy; a hereditary predisposition to allergic reactions; muscle weakness, myasthenia gravis; a thyroid issue; liver or renal disease; diabetes; or if you plan to have surgery.
It is unknown if dorzolamide or timolol will cause harm to an unborn child.
