This is probably posted in the wrong area. Can't seem to find where it might fit.

I have "dry eye", perhaps the result of Sjogren's Syndrome and hypothyroidism. My eye doc precribed Restasis. I have been on it for one year. I don't see any significant moisture changes, but I have gained 10 lbs after about 3 months of using the product. This may be a by product of the meds, part of the Sjogren's syndrome/Hypo, or maybe just too much pasta!

I am interested in hearing from anyone who has experienced a weight gained after starting on Restasis.

Hi Jack, welcome to Healingwell!  Might I suggest you post your question on either the Arthritis or Parkinsons forums? They might be able to help you more with any question you may have regarding Restasis.  Also too, you can use the search function and look this drug up that have been discussed on the forums.  Or you can click here: Search  good luck and I wish you well.
