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. I have even been able to stop using my OTC drops as frequently. Also, one thing to ask your doctor about is plugging your punctals if you have severe dry eye. 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.

I have been using restatis for about 3 mons. I do not experience a whole lot of burning or stinging when applying it (it helps to keep it in the fridge). my eyes burned from being dry to begin with.

Comment:
I put this stuff in my eye only one time. It was SO painful. Every time I blinked, it burned, and burned so badly that my eyes watered for an hour. I guess that's how you get rid of dry eyes? I know I should try using it for a longer period of time, but every time I try to use it I put it back down. My memory is too long and I'm not stupid. If a medication is that painful, how do they ...
