What is a generic medication?

Generic medications are significantly discounted copies of brand name medication that have the same active ingredients, intended use, dosage, side effects, effects, and route of administration as the original brand name medication. In other words, generic medications have the same pharmacological effects as their brand-name counterparts. Over half of all prescribed medications are for generic medications.

Restasis Helps Treat the Following Conditions:

Chronic Dry Eye

Tears lubricate our eyes and keep the eye surface clean and free of infections. Chronic dry eye is a condition in which the eye surface is not lubricated sufficiently. Symptoms include a burning sensation inside the eyes, itching, and light sensitivity.

Patients may feel that their eyes are tired or have the sensation as if there is a foreign object in the affected eye. Chronic dry eye may cause relatively minor irritation or more serious issues such as inflammation and scarring.

Restasis Active Ingredient

Generic Restasis Alternative: Restasis Unit Dose

Restasis eye drops contain the active ingredient cyclosporine. This substance is an immunosuppressant and helps to reduce inflammation in the eye. It also helps increase the body’s ability to produce tears.

General Drug Information

What is Restasis and What Is It Used For?

Restasis eye drops are prescribed to patients suffering from chronic dry eye caused by inflammation. It helps the eyes produce more tears, thus alleviating symptoms.

Usage and Application

Restasis should be applied exactly as prescribed by a doctor, usually twice a day (every 12 hours).

Patients should always wash their hands before applying the eye drops, taking care not to touch the dropper tip. Additionally, patients should not let the dropper tip touch their eyes or any other surface. This can cause contamination.

Before opening the vial, shake it several times to ensure the eye drops are well mixed. Restasis should have a white, milky appearance.

To apply, tilt your head back, look upward, and pull down the lower eyelid to make a pouch. Hold the dropper directly over the affected eye and place one drop into this pouch. Close your eyes and, looking downward, place one finger on the side of the nose (at the corner of the eye).

Apply gentle pressure at this point for a minute or two, as this will prevent Restasis from escaping. Do not blink or rub your eye. Repeat the procedure if you have been prescribed the eye drops for both eyes.

Patients who wear contact lenses should remove them before using the eye drops. Once the medication has been applied, they should wait at least 15 minutes before replacing their contact lenses.

Do not rinse the dropper after using the medication. Replace the dropper cap after each use.

Patients who use other kinds of eye drops or ocular ointments should wait at least 15 minutes before applying them. In order for the eye drops to enter the eye well, they should be used before any eye ointments.

Before driving or operating machinery, wait several minutes for vision to clear after application.

Patients should use Restasis regularly to gain the most benefit from it. Using the medication at the same time each day should help them to remember.

Patients who use the single-use form of Restasis should throw away opened vials after use. Do not save them for later use.

In the event a patient’s condition worsens, inform the treating physician.

Considerations Before Taking Restasis

Before starting treatment, patients need to discuss the possibility of allergic reactions to Restasis. Any history of allergic reactions to other medications should also be discussed.

It is vital to discuss the patient’s medical history, especially any current or recent eye infections.

Immediately after Restasis is applied, vision may be blurred temporarily. Patients should wait for their vision to clear before driving, using machinery, or carrying out any other tasks which require clear vision.

Restasis should be used only when clearly needed during pregnancy. Pregnant women or those planning on getting pregnant should discuss the risks and benefits with their doctor.

It is not known whether this medication passes into breast milk. Nursing mothers should consult their doctor before breastfeeding.

Delayed and Omitted Doses

Patients who miss a dose of Restasis should apply it as soon as they remember. If this happens near the time for the next dose, patients should skip the missed dose and proceed as usual. Patients should not double up on the dose in order to catch up.

Other Medications and Restasis

Drug interactions may change the way Restasis works, increasing the risk of side effects. Before starting treatment, patients need to discuss the full list of medications and supplements they are taking with their doctor. Patients should not change their dose or stop taking this medication unless their physician advises them to do so.

Adverse Reactions

Most patients are able to use Restasis safely and without serious negative side effects.

Common side effects include eye discomfort, redness, and itching. Some patients may experience temporary blurred vision or have the feeling that there is something in the affected eye. Patients should alert their doctor or pharmacist if any of these effects persist or worsen.

Serious allergic reactions to Restasis are rare, yet patients should be aware of allergy symptoms such as rash, itching and swelling, severe dizziness, and trouble breathing.

How to Store Restasis

Restasis should be stored at room temperature, away from light and moisture. Do not store in the bathroom. Keep away from children and pets.

Unwanted medication should be disposed of properly and should not be poured into drains or flushed down the toilet. Patients can consult their pharmacist or local waste disposal company to find out more about safe disposal methods.
