    Nevanac is great medication but bottle is horrible and very difficult to get 1 DROP OUT as you have to squeeze so hard you may get one or several drops. it is a struggle. many people who use it are seniors and find the bottle to hard to manage. please helps with the bottle problem. Many of my friends have this difficulty.

    I don't like using this cream in my eye as it is very thick and takes a while to come out of the bottle and doesn't always make it easy to get it into the eye.

I have been taking it every day, three drops per da ... Show Full Comment

    I had no side effects from it after cataract surgery. For a week after the surgery, whenever I felt a dull ache in my eye, the Nevanac seemed to soothe the ache, like an aspirin for my eye. My vision in the surgical eye is now 20/20.

    Comment:
    I took this medication prior to cataract surgery along with vigamox. Now after cataract surgery I use Nevanac, Vigamox, and Durezol drops three times a day in my right eye. All is going well except that I feel sick to my stomach after using. I think it's the Nevanac in combination with the other two that might be causing my stomach to feel bad. Wondering if anyone else has had a similar side e ... Show Full Comment
