I've only been using this product for a few days, but have a burning or stinging sensation for most of the day when using it. It's not unbearable but it's not that comfortable either. Just wondering if anyone else is experiencing this?
It stings my eyes a little bit sometimes, then goes away. It's okay to use other drops (like lubricating ones) after a short time period. Read the insert that came with the Restasis; I think it said you can use other drops after 15 minutes or so. Otherwise, I'd run this by your doctor just in case.
I have been using restasis for 2 years now. It has really helped me. I found if you keep the medication in the refrigerator, it makes a big difference. When applying it, the coldness feels great to my eyes and the burning or stinging sensation only bothers me for a few minutes.And yes, it is normal for most patients to have discomfort.
