I have Rheumatoid Arthritis and have been taking Enbrel for six years and it has been a very successful treatment for me. I have been having problems with Dry Eye, and my opthamalogist suggested that I try Restasis. However, I am concerned about taking another medication that is an immunosuppresant (Since Enbrel is already an immunosuppresant). Does anyone have experience with taking both of these medications, and what has been your experience? I will talking to my rheumatologist about this in the near future.

I have n't had experience with either meds, but do suffer from iritis, and take two immuno-suppressants - pred and Methotrexate and also use Acular for my eyes - which has steroid in it. I dont have any probs with this treatmant. Is Restasis eye drops or oral medication?
