    Detached retina surgery 2 years ago resulting in blindness. But the eye continues to be red and painful.Started this drug 3 days ago resulting in severe itching, hives,and wheezing. Finally settled down after repeated doses of anti-histamines. Dr.says there shouldn't be pain of the eyeball and the drug doesn't cause that kind of reaction. One dose and I'M itching again.

    I have been using this medication for 3 months after my cornea surgery. The biggest problem I am having is I am extremely itching and am getting raised red bumps over my body (legs, chest, arms). Must take Benadryl 3-4 times a day. Very annoying
