  • From this study (2 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.

    Sincerely,
    Abdullah Olomi

  • I have experienced hearing loss within the past 8 years and wondered if it had to do with medications I have taken. I have taken others during that time including Abilify, Trileptal, Effexor. I recently have noticed a decrease in my hearing.
