  • Xiidra - Questions

    All,

    I started Xiidra and it does not sting or burn as most report. Has anyone else reported no stinging or burning using Xiidra? I find it comforting that is does not sting, but it is unusual.


    Thanks!

    I had been on Restasis for about five years. I did not think it was helping at all, so with my ophthalmologists approval, I stopped taking it. Didn't notice a difference, my eyes were just as dry as while I was taking the Restasis. When I first started Restasis I could barely tolerate it, it burned so much. I had to take it for the first month with another eye drop to ease the burning. It has been almost a year since I quit Restasis. Today I started Xiidra. It stung a little bit, but nothing like the intolerable burning I had with Restasis. I was surprised because I have seen some say that Xiidra burned them more than Restasis did. I guess it is different for everyone.
