I have been taking Restasis for about 9 months. I have Sicca Syndrom and I can tell a big difference when I use the tear drop. I have not had any side affects, with the exception of the stinging.

Good luck to all who use this product, ... Show Full Comment

I've only taken it for 3 weeks and my eyes are better - but I have developed arthritis in my thumb. I've seen other posts here about arthritis so I think it's the Restasis. Never a problem with arthritis before taking it. I'm skipping today's dose. Hope my thumb feels better.

I have been treated for dry eye for several months before starting Restasis. Since using this medication I have developed severe pain like slivers of glass in my eyes besides burning and foggy vision. I feel that all my new problems are being caused by the use of this medication. I now have severe eye problems.
