I have had burning and post nasal drip with use. Also discovered when I use it at night, I do not sleep. Bad news for an insomniac. My eyes continue to burn and hurt at night, making it difficult to read and watch TV. Not worth it to me.

I have been on this medication for 6 months. It took about a month to notice a change, but now my eyes feel much better, and I use OTC drops less.

I used Restasis for about six weeks. My vision became blurred after about three weeks. I decided to stop it to see if that helped, and it did--my vision was no longer blurred. I won't use it again.

Comment:
I use these drops for over a year and my eyes got worse and worse, finally, the ophthalmologist said if they haven’t helped in a year, you might as well quit using them. As soon as I quit, my eye weren’t nearly as dry as with the drops. These made my eyes feel like sandpaper!
