I have chronic inflammation due to several conditions and it really works for me. I tried a generic medicine but it didn't work. Only thing bad about Alrex is the cost.

I was given this medication for "dry eye" condition. I have tried to use this drug for two years, but have gotten less relief from it than from OTC meds. Then recently I read where eye meds with steriods can cause glaucoma! So have decided to quit using this.

I dont see any dates on these reviews, Optometrist prescribed but did not tell me it was a steroid.. I should have read pharmacy notes with it... this was year or so ago, I then found out high eye pressure but do not know if it was from drops, but wise to check if using... later diagnosed with acute angle Glaucoma by specialist so not sure if drops or Optometrist not noticing, cause or ?? It is sometimes difficult to find out what is causing red sore eyes, especially if we have dry eyes.... good luck everyone!

I have had scleritis in both eyes since 1992. I tried 20+ other drugs until I was prescribed Alrex in 2002. It has been an eye saver.

Did not clear up the problem of red eyelids and red eyes. Eyes were also sore.
