I have chronic inflammation due to several conditions and it really works for me. I tried a generic medicine but it didn't work. Only thing bad about Alrex is the cost.

My eyes constantly itched and I could not get relief from over the counter drops. Using Alrex I experienced immediate relief from itching sensation. Relief lasted 12 hours.

Comment:
I have chronic inflammation of the eye and eyelids due to stevens Johnson Syndrome and this mild steroid has definitely helped take the inflamation down and quieted the redness of my eye so the cornea is much mroe clear and white. I use 3x/day for 3 weeks. Helped my pain, no side effects. it's a great medication for me
