RESTASIS, unlike artificial tears, can help produce more of your own tears.
The first few weeks of treatment, RESTASIS helps reduce the inflammation that contributes to the irritation and discomfort you may be experiencing. You are encouraged to continue use of artificial tears, as needed. Two to three months of continued use of RESTASIS is required for effect. Do not discontinue use without consulting your doctor!
Remember, dry eyes are most often due to decreased tear production, which is a chronic disease. Treatment, therefore, requires your long-term commitment.
