    Have been using the drops for 5 days for conjunctivitis. Have experienced very severe upper eyelid and facial itching. Have taken Benedryl for itching but it did not help. Took last dose 14 hours ago and will be contacting doctor today.

    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 notifed the doctor right away and was told to use systane before using the medication. It has not helped at all, it fact it is worse. I cannot continue putting her in this much pain and will stop the medication in the morning.....
