Rastasis eye drops
2 Replies RSS
eye drops ## Is it possible for rastasis eye drops to cause the blood to thin so that clotting is difficult. My husband has been using these drops for about a week and a cut on his hand was still bleeding profusely the next morning. This is very uncommon for him and rastasis is the only new medication he is using. ## Restasis is listed as containing Cyclosporine, it is used in drop form to treat chronic dry eye. The FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including irritation, redness, burning, and eye irritation, and yes, it has also been reported to cause bleeding and clotting disorders in some patients. How is he doing, now? Has there been any change?

Using Lumigan for glaucoma
1 Reply RSS
Do other glaucoma patients run out of Lumigan much quicker than their other eye drops? ## Hello people. notice I am new to the privileges of using this Interweb. More to the point, I am also new to the awareness of and treatments for my "inherent wide-angle Glaucoma". The (use before bedtime eye-drops Latanoprost) was RX dispensed in a teensy container. One drop in each eye daily and ALWAYS empties 5-7 days after it is opened. This container ALWAYS shows 1-2 more applications remaining in the container which; so far, I can't get out. This container is $101.93. The label "claims" to hold 29 days of doses. This IS mathematically impossible by my understanding. This fact being ALSO supported by several lucid and perplexed medical professionals. I am relieved to read ano...

Inherent wide angle glaucoma at age 50
Post a Reply
My (inherent) wide-angle glaucoma was diagnosed by a kind man, my Optician. His body language guarded, he searched for someone along with me, to break bad news, noting irreversible damage. I'd rapidly lost by failure to account for 30% of my adult vision. Being without all/any treatment for the Glaucoma for about twenty agonizing months. Indicating that I begin using Xalatan "one drop in each eye before bed daily." Adding "If I used more drops that it would not help my situation." I believe I disagree yet without power to convince. Factually; for whatever reason, I DO enjoy relief from pain, headache, visible swelling, (iop?) when that prescribed amount is readministered 8 or 12 hours again later (BID). I experienced marked relief; well, what and why the discussion? ...

Can Latisse backfire?
73 Replies RSS
I used Latisse successfully for several months & loved the look. But then my lashes started to fall out, leaving me with short stubby ones less full than when I began the latisse. Does anyone know if it stops working, or the body gets resistant to it, or have any of you had the same reaction? Thanks. ## Same thing happened to me - I am wondering if this is a bad batch of Latisse - how would one know until eyelashes stop growing or fall out? ## It is normal for your body to eventually get used to any type of medication you are using, even a topical one and it may stop working as well as it once did. The warnings in the product information also say that other changes in hair growth may occur and though it is rare, this could involve shorter or less lashes. Some drugs don't work at...

My Dad has Sjogrens dry eyes. Can't get Hypoteatrs in local stores any longer. Does anyone know of an exact alternative?? ## Have you tried checking online to see if you can order them? I've found them in stock at several online retailers, including Amazon.

Terramicina vs Tobradex for stye on outer top side of eyelid
1 Reply RSS
Hello. I am curious if Terramicina works at all or better on a stye than Tobramycin? ## Most do not require treatment, according to NIH reports, they will usually go away on their own, though it may take about a week, or so. As to using either of these medications, since they are not specifically formulated for optical use, thus, they might not be sterile and safe for use in your eye. According to the FDA that means they could worsen the issue, or cause additional infections. How are you doing? Has there been any change?

Has anyone experienced loss of smell and taste since getting injections? ## What did your retinal specialist say about the cause of loss of smell and taste? Were you on Lucentis or Avastin before the start of Eylea? ## I haven't been able to find any information that lists such symptoms as being known side effects of this medication, but it's very difficult to know how any drug will affect any given person that takes it. Have you contacted your doctor about it? Learn more Eylea details here. ## I have been having inj's. for amd since Oct 2010. First Lucentic for about a year, then Avastin.

How are you? This is an antibiotic that's used to treat various types of infections. But what type of doctor did you see for it? It's incorrect to assume that such a thing would have any effect on your eyesight, if it occurs again, because not all such afflictions do. Did they mention what caused it? ## Yesterday I went out of town and couldn't go to the washroom and couldn't drink water for 8 hours; and today this morning I'm experiencing a burning sensation while urinating.

Terramicina - Does It Go In The Eye Or Around?
2 Replies RSS
I have pink eye. Can I use terramicina in my eye as a salve, or just around the eye? ## I think it really depends on whether or not you have the ointment, powder or the eye drops. There should be instructions on the package, no? That's just wrong if there isn't, as from what I can tell it can be used to treat pink eye. Based on information i've gathered, the application guidelines are simple. Listed below are the indications for the ointment: "Broad-spectrum antibiotic ideal for mild bacterial eye infections Easy to use - simply apply ointment directly on the affected area" I'm assuming that the eye drops are no different other than actually dropping it into your eye. Here is an information link to the powdered form of this medication as well (it states: puff pow...

I just want to know what this drug used for and the ingredients and side effects? ## Duract contains the active ingredient Bromfenac, it is a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory that is used to treat pain, fever and swelling. Common side effects may include: nausea, dizziness, headache and stomach irritation. However, you should also be aware that this medication was removed from the market, in some countries, due to numerous occurrences of liver failure, when someone had used it for longer than the recommended time period, which is 10 days.

Has anyone had experience with Xiidra, for dry eyes? I am curious if there are any side effects not listed by the company... ## I have been experiencing extreme headaches, and I just had a brainstorm: Could it be induced by Xiidra?

Dorzolamide - Timolol Opth Soln 10 ML
Post a Reply
I have been on Dorzolamide - Timolol for the past eight months , for use in one eye . This drug has reduced my eye pressure from 21 to 13 . I receive a 10 ML vial or bottle, which should last approximately 45 days . However after about 28 days the bottle is empty with proper use . What i discovered in the first four bottles is that , they were approx. 70 % full . I registered a complaint with my health insurance , which informed me to check the level of the bottle before leaving the pharmacy. When i acquired the fifth bottle , it was completely filled or 100%. I served on a Grand Jury for medicaid fraud . This is no doubt a case of fraud . A prescription bottle of Dorzolamide - Ttimolol 10 ML should be filled to the top of the bottle.

Jetrea Experience
3 Replies RSS
I am 54 years old which I am told is fairly young for this situation. I also had Lasik surgery 10 years ago and my vision was perfect for distance. I was only beginning to need reading glasses. It was very difficult to accept the changes that started occurring in my right eye especially since my vision was so great beforehand. I had surgery (vitrectomy) for a macular hole in Jan of 2014. The surgery was successful but I did develop a cataract very quickly which almost always happens after this surgery. Much to my dismay, the same situation presented in my left eye in Dec of 2014. I knew immediately what was going on so I made an appointment with my surgeon. We decided to try the injection this time since my hole was very small and he figured it was a 50/50 chance in my case. I had the i...

Hi, I have glaucoma and i want to know if it's safe for me to take terfamex 30 mg? ## Hello, Alaminos! How are you?

eye drops in ear,is this harmful?

I'm accidentally put tetrahydrozoline in my ear & now I'm experiencing some nausea. Should I be concerned and are there any other symptoms I should be on the look out for? Also, my intention was to use ear wax removing solution, is it okay to attempt to loosen the cerumen in my ear or should I wait awhile? ## Hello, Jkidd! How are you? No, generally eye drops in your ear aren't a concern, though you may experience the nausea, as you have, due to the fluid in the ear. You should also make sure that it drains out, before trying to use anything else. It's always best to double check with your doctor, but I doubt you have anything to worry about here. If you put ear drops in your eye, that would be a concern, because ear drops aren't sterile, like eye drops. Is there...
