    Started taking Zioptan for high intraocular pressure 2 wks ago after cataract surgery. Eyes now feel much drier. The perservative BAK in other glaucoma drops caused uncomfortable side effects esp. itching. Preservative free drops were necessary. Any help dealing with the above is greatly appreciated.

  • I have kidney disease FSGS just recently diagnosed...

    I have kidney disease FSGS just recently diagnosed in May17 I have been on medication Ramipril 10mg per day, Adizem-XL 240mg per day and Furosemide 40mg per day. About a couple weeks ago I cut my dosage of Furosemide (for Odema) to 20mg per day without any problems. About 3-4 weeks ago I noticed that my eyes were blurring & I was finding it increasingly difficult at work to read small numbers and print. I saw my optician who gave me a letter for my Dr who has prescribed Hypromellose Eye Drops which do help a little. I have also noticed that I feel I have mucus at the back of my throat a lot & a tickley cough which is driving me mad sometimes. Over the last couple of day I thought I was catching a cold however, I notice my nose is itchy & dry & when I blow in the morning I have blood. Any help please?

    I have been on Losartan for appro three years. I have had dry eyes for three years, also. The last 6 months, it has gotten worse. I am currently under the care of an opthamologist. he has me on restasis, heat treatments, ointment at night and serum tears. Nothing seems to be helping. I wanted my family doctor to switch me from Losartan to something that wasn't a beta blocker, but he says the Losartan is not the cause of my dry eyes.

    I am in my late sixties and very healthy. My dry eyes syndrome only started recently. After considering what have I done differently lately, I finally figured out it was taking ubiquinol, which I started taking a few months ago. Guess who is not going to take it anymore? I will go back to Kirkland Brand COQ10 which is did not cause dry eyes. Taking this is not worth the discomfort and constant application of tears. Thank goodness for the internet!

    This is the first time I have ever heard of anybody else having eye dryness and pain after taking Melatonin.
    My eyes got so dry and uncomfortable that it would actually wake me up out of a sound sleep and send me running for moisture eyedrops.
    I have mentioned this symptom to a lot of docs, nurses, health-food/alternative medicine folks and to a person they all said, "I've never heard of that."

    my eyes are red--I look tired all of the time. I have been taking Citalopram for & do very well on it but have just considered that the Celexa is the cause of my red dry-eyed eyes. I'm considering talking to a psychiatrist to help me come off the Celexa. My eyes are always red. I just don't like it. Have any of you heard of anyone going off of Celexa & moistness in the eyes returning? Thank you!!
