I have been on Durezol drops 6x day for over a year and have gained 20 pounds!
My IOP was so low that they could not get a reading and the Durezol is being used to increase the pressure. I will be on them indefinitely. Not happy about the weight gain.

The FDA classifies this as a steroid class medication, so weight gain can be a typical side effect of it, along with dizziness, headache, eye irritation and acne.

Are you also watching your diet and getting plenty of exercise? Such actions may help to mitigate the weight gain.

Please get a second opinion asap. Durezol is not intended for that high of a dose. It is very strong and will increase inflammation and eye damage which actually lowers the eye pressure causing hypotony. This happened in my case and also caused macular edema. There are other drops you can use this often but Durezol was never rxd for me more than 2x day and I have severe chronic iritis/uveitis. I have used PredForte every waking hour. But also beware of the long term and permanent damage from the preservatives.
