Dorzolamide - Timolol Opth Soln 10 ML

I have been on Dorzolamide - Timolol for the past eight months , for use in one eye . This drug has reduced my eye pressure from 21 to 13 . I receive a 10 ML vial or bottle, which should last approximately 45 days . However after about 28 days the bottle is empty with proper use . What i discovered in the first four bottles is that , they were approx. 70 % full . I registered a complaint with my health insurance , which informed me to check the level of the bottle before leaving the pharmacy. When i acquired the fifth bottle , it was completely filled or 100%. I served on a Grand Jury for medicaid fraud . This is no doubt a case of fraud . A prescription bottle of Dorzolamide - Ttimolol 10 ML should be filled to the top of the bottle.
