For Postoperative Ocular Inflammation: "This medication caused headaches and painful eye pressure behind my eyes. It also felt as if I had foreign bodies in my eye. Due to the great discomfort I experienced, I began reading several sites regarding this medication. I find that this medication has many concerning negative side effects."

For Postoperative Ocular Inflammation: "I was told by my regular Optomologist that it usually takes around 3 months for complete healing of cataract removal. I was weaned from prednisolone in two sessions. However, after administering it for 2 1/2 months, and a few days passed in its absence, my eye became red, itching, slight pain, tearing and very sensitive to light at night. The surgeon put me back on prednisolone 4 time a day for two weeks. Praying that the inflammation will be done away within that time frame."

Holly · Taken for less than 1 month February 27, 2018

For Postoperative Ocular Inflammation: "I used this after cataract surgery. I noticed that I have been getting more fatigued after almost 3 weeks of use. My balance is definitely unsteady and I am use to walking over 7000 steps a day. My thinking is foggy. It would be scary if I had to use precision tools. I am becoming more hesitant on using stairs in my 2 story home. Shall be consulting Doctor after having read other comments."

I'm taking it for 2 month now. · Taken for 1 to 6 months July 20, 2017

For Iritis: "I'm taking it for two month so far , I haven't experienced any side effect yet. Is it true that I could cause blindness ?"

Sandhill Garden · Taken for 1 to 6 months January 16, 2017

For Postoperative Ocular Inflammation: "I used these drops as prescribed, 4x daily, beginning several days before cataract surgery for 6 weeks (2 weeks after the second surgery). I was not told of possible adverse side effects. When I became ill soon after starting the drops, I did not realize what was causing the problem and was afraid to tell the doctor for fear he would not perform the second surgery. However, I was so fatigued and lethargic that I had to stop exercising, and just got through each day doing the minimum to get by. I was also plagued by fluid in my ear. It wasn't until stopping prednisone for 2 weeks that I began to feel better. Patients should be told of the possible side effects, and I think prednisone should be avoided or the minimum possible prescribed."

Tiger Terry December 17, 2016

For Postoperative Ocular Inflammation: "Experiencing muscle pain and weakness, poor sleep quality, and general fatigue but not sure if these symptoms are from side effects of this med after a week and a half of using drops in eye. Also noticing some irritation and mental confusion post op. Is this common after cataract surgery? I feel vision adjustment issues might cause the vertigo & loss of muscular control I am also experiencing."

Dhallen1 December 9, 2016

For Iritis: "I started taking this because I have shingles on my face and on my eye. I took 1drop on the left eye every hour for 13hours. By the end of that time my eye was seriously sore. I went to bed and next eye was better according to Dr. So yeah sometimes it's. going to hurt more before it gets better"

For Iritis: "I am a 75 year old male, and have reoccurring bout with Iritis, this is the ONLY medication that I take for it (there is another more powerful med. but I can't think of the name of it) . The only side affect I have is a momentary burning however it is only momentary. I think the med. great and I recommend it."

For Postoperative Ocular Inflammation: "On this for cystoid macular edema after cataract surgery for 21 days. After 24 hrs I had a severe headache in the occipital area which increased 4 fold daily to the point of nausea, severe nausea, then 3 days of vomiting prior to winding up in the ER for cardiac. After 5 hrs. of testing FORTUNATELY it was not a heart attack. I knew something was up from day one (former pharmacy worker) with the side effects. The day after I stopped the drops no headache & other symptoms vanished!! Did research and the drug had interaction with my Diltiazem 240mg ER I was taking for HBP. What happened was the PredForte drop was magnified 4X by the effect with the interaction with my script. I'm telling you folks ALWAYS keep your Pharmacist in the loop."

Disappointed and concerned September 23, 2015

For Postoperative Ocular Inflammation: "After completing 4 weeks of treatment, as prescribed, my eye became irritated i.e pain/discomfort, redness and sensitivity to light. I was told to repeat it for 4 more weeks. I've been on it now for 4 months with the same results. Stop it, and soon eye irritation begins again. And I'm back to using it again. Doesn't seem right, especially when one should not use it for long periods Doesn't seem to be working. I too agree that it stings when instilled and I also taste it."

For Postoperative Ocular Inflammation: "Caused the eye to burn afterwards."
