Unavailability of Glaucoma medication

Posted , 3 users are following.

For some years now I have been using Brimonidine drops but suddenly, they have become unavailable. Consultant baffled as this is, apparently,the basic/standard glaucoma medication. Anybody else having this problem?

    Hello not sure if you are in the UK as I have not heard of diminishing What I can tell you s that I have been using a glaucoma drop called Azopt which has,suddenly become unavailable. Apparently a problem with distributor although I have been told that supplies will be available end of the month. In the meantime as I will run out of the azopt end of this week I will now have to take the generic version of azopt Brinzolamide. It should be the same but I do have very sensitive eyes so will not know until I start at the weekend. I wonder if this the drug you are referring to.
