I recently had Dorzolomide added to Combigan and Travatan. It makes me so incredibly tired. I have been on it for about a week and am hoping that I will be able to tolerate it better at some point. Does this happen with anyone else? I guess if there is a side effect, this is not the worst one in the world, but I am usually a pretty active person and this is just knocking me for a loop.
