After 10 days my lips got swollen for two days. Two days later I started to feel a pressure in my chest. My family insisted that I had to go to the emergency due to the nature of the pain. I went and of course they admited me, did all the tests to check my heart and everything was fine. I am sure the Restasis is to blame. The pain lasted 3 more days after I stopped the drops. Was a very bad experi ... Show Full Comment

My eyes were driving me crazy with the burning, hurting and feeling like a foreign object was in them. Went to an ophthamologist who diagnosed "no infection," recommended artificial tears and sent me on my way. Very expensive and not very helpful. Tried various brands of artificial tears and gels.
