bitter & sour taste with cosopt

I have been using Cosopt morning and evening for several months now. It keeps down the eye pressure,but I have an increasing problem with sour and bitter taste in my mouth. It stays for at least 5-6 hours , making me not want to eat. Is there anything I can do for this problem? I have severe glaucoma in one eye and less in the other.

Lie down when doing drops .. put a finger with some pressure on the tear duct .. do the drop (only use one!) and give it a couple minutes to absorb. Then release the tear duct and go on with your day. It should help the taste problem.
