Attn: Anyone Who Requested Registration and never got a response.

We normally get back to people on registration requests within a few business days. If you don't hear back from us within a week it may be because we're having difficulty with your email address. If you included your username in your request we've probably registered you already and just can't send you the information. You can give us a call at 1-877-693-7939 between the hours of 8am-4am Pacific time. We'll have your information set aside to give to you in the event attempts to send to your email didn't work.

  • restasis patent?

    I'm sure many users of Restasis suffer from the cost of it because there is no generic version. I have been doing some research to learn when the patent is up for Allergan, with no luck.

    Does anyone have any information/knowledge of the conditions of the patent and when it will expire?

    Restasis

    I believe Lumigen and Restasis are patent protected until 2014.

    Plans are on for a Restasis 'X' with expected approval ~ 2012 -

    I understand Restasis X in in phase 2 testing now ...

      but you could go to a compounding pharmacy and have them make you an eye drop with cyclosporine made with corn oil...I got the .02 percent. Insurance picked up the main part and it was only 25 dollars! I remember I paid 100.00 for restasis and that was after insurance...!
