I only just started this two days ago. No burning for me so far. Hope it helps but the price is prohibitive. Looking for low-cost alternatives or programs. However, I noticed a few posts about fish oil. Please try to find a vegetable source for Omega 3 and Omega 6's! Fish oil can be toxic!

I tried this drug initially 2 years ago for severe dry eye. At that time I used it for two months with no results. Six weeks ago my eye doctor insisted I try again, using it in conjunction with lotemax, warm eye compresses, and fish oil capsules. I have been extremely faithful to the regimine, only missing on average one to two nights a week on the warm compresses, and have had no results. I have ... Show Full Comment
