Answer

Yes, Combigan 0.2%-0.5% Ophthalmic Solution (Brimonidine; Timolol) is available generically (since 2022).

In fact, it is produced by at least 5 different manufacturers that I am aware of, including:

  • Sandoz
  • Alembic Pharmaceuticals, Inc.
  • Apotex Corp
  • Florida Pharmaceutical Products, LLC
  • Teva

Below is an image of Brimonidine Tartrate/Timolol Maleate 0.2%-0.5% Ophthalmic Solution manufactured by Alembic in three different sizes.

Generic Combigan

I am not aware of any supply issues regarding the generic Combigan products, so if you have been prescribed the drug by your doctor, talk to your pharmacist about which generic option is available to you.

Final Words

Thanks so much for reaching out and please do so again anytime.
