Taking Your Treatment as Prescribed

If you've been diagnosed with this type of glaucoma or ocular hypertension (high eye pressure), it's important to continue your therapy even if you feel fine. Remember, there are no early warning signs or symptoms. You usually can't feel the high eye pressure, and only your eye care professional can measure it.

Glaucoma is a lifelong disease, which means treatment is also lifelong. Remembering to take your eyedrops is easier if you make them part of your daily routine. Committing to taking your medication exactly as prescribed is the best way to help manage your type of glaucoma.

Be sure to ask your eye care professional if COMBIGAN® may be right for you.

You play the most important role in your treatment. The success of your therapy ultimately depends upon you and your ongoing daily commitment to taking your glaucoma medication as your doctor prescribed.

Indication: COMBIGAN® (brimonidine tartrate/timolol maleate ophthalmic solution) 0.2%/0.5% is approved for reducing elevated intraocular pressure (IOP) in patients with glaucoma or ocular hypertension who require adjunctive or replacement therapy due to inadequately controlled IOP. COMBIGAN® lowers IOP slightly less than taking both brimonidine tartrate three times a day and timolol maleate two times a day.

Contraindications: COMBIGAN® ophthalmic solution should not be used by patients who have or ever had a reactive airway disease including bronchial asthma, chronic bronchitis, emphysema, slow heartbeat, impaired conduction of the heart, heart failure, or impaired pumping of the heart. COMBIGAN® should not be used in patients aged 2 years and younger, or by patients with hypersensitivity to any ingredient in this product.
