Any side effects from Xiidra?

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? Restasis certainly caused headaches and more. It has definitely affected my sense of taste.
