FYI, there is now a generic for Cosopt that was approved as of 11/1/08. The generic is Dorzolamide-Timolol. My insurance company wasted no time dispensing the generic and it isn't that much cheaper that Cosopt. This always scares me because the FDA is always much to eager to approve drugs with minimal data and then a year or two later they pull it off the shelves. One might think the FDA is run by the pharmaceutical companies, silly me for thinking that. A few years ago my MD told me I had, had, to take this statin medication. I complies and ended up with perpherial neuropathy and just recently it was discovered that the medication was useless as a statin. How did the FDA approve that drug? How many people have been killed or injured cause by a FDA oversight? Now they want me to take a brand new generic and use it in my eye. What might the oversight be this time, blindness?
I am not against generic medications but I do think that there should be more research done before the FDA uses people as crash test dummies.
If you are using Cosopt watch out for the generic switch.
Keep moving, it makes it harder for the undertaker to catch you. Don
