What is Combigan?
Combigan is a prescription eye-drop medication. It is used to reduce a build-up of pressure inside the eye in adults and children aged 2 and over with ocular hypertension or glaucoma. The medication is dropped directly into your eye and it reduces how much aqueous humor (a transparent water-like fluid) is produced in your eyes, helping to lower pressure.
You typically drop Combigan into each affected eye twice daily, ideally 12 hours apart. The doctor who prescribes the medication to you will tell you how much to use and how often.
Combigan active ingredients
Combigan has two active ingredients, called brimonidine and timolol. They work together to reduce the pressure in your eye(s).
When you drop Combigan into your eye, the brimonidine and timolol it contains are absorbed through your cornea (the front of your eye). The active ingredients then attach to the surface of cells inside your eye at sites called receptors. This stimulates the cells inside your eye to produce less aqueous humor, lowering the pressure inside your eye.
Combigan side effects
The most common side effects caused by Combigan include:
- Eye irritation, including redness, itching, and stinging or burning sensations
- Inflammation of the eye and eyelids
In rarer instances, Combigan can cause more serious side effects, like:
- Severe allergic reactions to the medication
- Heart failure
- Difficulties breathing
- Worsening asthma
- Worsening chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD)
- Falls in blood pressure (hypotension)
- Stronger allergy symptoms in people with existing allergies
- Muscle weakness
- An increased risk of bacterial infections in the cornea (bacterial keratitis)

- Any other medications or products you put into your eye
