I have been using this medication for my 84 year old mother (1 drop each eye BID) for 2 days now and she is having extreme pain almost all day long.

I cannot continue putting her in this much pain and will stop the medication in the morning.....

Comment:
My 87 year old mother took this medication and the side of her face got red and swollen and developed sores. She stopped using the medication after that. She had only taken it for a day or two. She still has these adverse side effects and it has been 3 days since she stopped this medication.
