In brief: Yes

Depends on your definition of bad but yes there are relative and absolute contraindications, and many potential side effects, but generally the medicine is tolerated.

In brief: Yes

Timolol has been available for many years, but the serious side effects can include heart block and even death.
This is very rare.
