Comments from related studies:
From this study (6 days ago):
Aware of the more usual yesteryear being much clearer than yesterday in the elderly and this is normal experience. More recent months has shown that the mid term and even the 'fossilised' memory is affected (is that piano new? was my husband called George?). Spoken references are still clear and self orientation in time and place, though some appointments missed. Then losing normal to hand items now: letters just received, keys, tv remote (found in kitchen drawer)
Continuing to use daily so no assessment of withdrawal at this time
From this study (2 weeks ago):
Dry cough started after starting Zioptan. Coughing started while I had a cold, and persisted after the cold resolved. Upper airway sometimes seems irritated, too. No shortness of breath. Chest x-ray normal.
From this study (3 weeks ago):
Sice 6 month ago, because of high pressure of my eyes,I visited eye specialist and after he checking my eyes, he found Glaucoma associated with high pressure in my two eyes. He gave the above mentioned eye drops and advised me to instill one drop of Timolol to each eye in the morning and 1 drop of Latanoprost 0.005% in each eye in the bed time, every day . Those drugs made normal eye pressure. But recently I was feeling a kind of weakness and sleepy with a little discomfort on my heart. Then I checked my blood pressure and heart rate. The blood bressure getting high around 155/70 and the HERAT RATE dropped down 56,55,52 even some times to 48. Today August 21, 2014 I am feeling a lot weakness and with heart rate of 48. Then I stop the medication today and went through online, found your site and wrote the history to you. It should be mentioned that tomorrow I will contact to my eye doctor and will him to know, too. Llast week on Tuesday I talked to my family doctor and she thought this slow heart rate would be due to eye drops. Thanks for your help and remain to hearing from you.
