In brief: Dorzolamide

The generic form of trusopt is dorzolamide, so is usually less expensive.
But be aware that the brand name medication is sometimes a bargain with rebates from the manufacturer. Also if the branded drug controls your pressure better due to the formulation helping the active ingredient get into the eye better, then that is your best value for the medication. Sometimes cheaper is not better.
