  • Extremely Dry Eyes after St.John's Wort

    I've taken St. John's Wort and Passiflora against my Depression, and the result is extremely dry eyes!!!!!!
    and i can't take st. john's wort any longer,

    so now i have beside my heavy depression additionally extremely dry eyes

    No eye drops really help me against this extreme sicca syndrome,
    I must take hyaluronic acid 0,3% all 15 minutes, about the whole day distributed I have to do certainly 60 times pure drop.

    I have despaired very much,

    Flaxseed oil in the eye lids brings for 1 hour relief, but i can't recognize any longer cure.

    I have this mega sicca syndrome since 3 Months and it becomes simply not better.

    I have already tried the following to cure the sicca syndrome but no effect:
    - Acetylstein (7 days 600 mg)
    - Tears Again Sensitive (4 Weeks)
    - Anthocyane (3 Weeks)
    - High Dosage Vitamin C (~ 5g about 3 Weeks)
    - Flaxseed Oil oral and on the eye lids
    - omega 7 (sallow thorn oil) 3 Weeks
    - several standard eye drops (carbomer 2mg etc.)

    Anyone an idea what could help in long-term??

    Have you tried taking a high dose of fish oil? Some times it takes 2-3 months before you get the benefits for these but they make a great deal of difference to many dry eye suffers.
    People have recovered, so can we.
