What is Restasis used for?
Restasis is a prescription eye drop that increases the eye's natural ability to produce eyes. It is used to treat a type of chronic eye condition caused by ocular inflammation.
How does Restasis work?
When you have ocular inflammation, this could cause the inability to produce natural tear fluid. The Restasis eye drops contain the medical active ingredient Cyclosporine, which is a drug that is known as an immunosuppressant. Cyclosporine can increase tear production that has is caused by inflammation in the eyes.
Before taking your prescribed Restasis eye drops, read all the instructions that was provided by your pharmacist. For dry eyes, a typical dose is one drop in each eye twice a day. Take care to prevent contamination by washing your hands before using the eye drops. Be careful not to touch the bottle tip to your eye or other surfaces to avoid potential for eye injury and contamination.
Restasis should not be administered while wearing contacts. If you wear contact lenses, they should be removed before applying Restasis. Allow at least 15 minutes after having administered the eye drops before you put your contacts back in.
In general, Restasis doesn't really appear to have many drug interactions, but the effectiveness of Restasis (Cyclosporine) may be affected if administered with other eye drops. Patients using other eye drops should consult with their eye doctor for advice. Patients may use Restasis with artificial tears or over-the-counter eye lubricants, allowing a 15 minute interval between products to ensure that all of the eye solution is absorbed.
Restasis (Cyclosporine) does not produce its effect immediately. An increase in tear production may not be noticed until 3 to 6 months after starting treatment.
Restasis (Cyclosporine) may contain medical and non medical ingredients that could cause an allergic reaction. Consult your doctor about all known allergies, prescription, non-prescription, illegal, recreational, herbal, nutritional, or dietary drugs you're taking. Also, speak with your doctor about any known medical conditions relating to recent eye infections to avoid interactions with Restasis.
Your vision may become briefly impaired after administering the eye drops. Do not drive or operate heavy machinery until you are confident it is safe to do so.
The most common side effect of Restasis is a temporary burning sensation in the eye.
Other side effects include: eye redness, watery eyes, discharge, eye pain, itching, stinging, blurred vision, or foreign body sensation.
If any side effects become unmanageable speak with your doctor or pharmacist for help in managing these mentioned side effects. For any serious side effects that occur speak with your doctor right away for further treatment options.
