In this 2007 post, Use Coenzyme Q10 with Timolol Eye Drops for Glaucoma | FitEyes.com, Dave wrote:
If you use ocular beta blockers such as timolol for glaucoma, consider using coenzyme Q10 supplements (ideally in the ubiquinol form). Even with careful use (including punctal occlusion), some glaucoma patients experience serious cardiovascular side effects from timolol. However, several studies have found that coenzyme Q10 can improve cardiovascular health. And one study specifically found that coenzyme Q10 reduced those cardiovascular side effects caused by timolol eye drops. Therefore, I would not consider using timolol eye drops without also using coenzyme Q10.
I would like to know if any FitEyes members who have low blood pressure have used CoQ10 and if they have noticed a drop in their blood pressure, per this study: Taking CoQ10 for Blood Pressure
If you have, did you find any way to be able to continue taking coQ10 without the BP drop?
Here's the study that statement is sourced from:
