    Posts like this concern me...I just started restasis and I believe it's already helping me less than a month in. The question is, if it does stop working, what next? That's my biggest fear.. I'm feeling decent on steroids and restasis...I'd hate to regress back to burning torched eyeballs.

      For me personally,

      My doctor gave me Protagenta six times a day and ocuflam when my eyes get red. but now i'm using ocuflam one times every three day, right now it's working for me. Ocuflam really did help a lot.

      Also im keeping ocuflam in the fridge after being open so it gonna last longer.

        Personally, I've never had Restasis or Xiidra "stop working." I do think it's possible that your symptoms can worsen while on Restasis or Xiidra, though probably not as a result of using the medication.

        For example - let's say you have moderate dry eye caused by computers and start using Restasis. After a month, you feel slightly better, but you keep using computers at a high rate. As computers are (in a way) a source of inflammation, the total amount of inflammation in your eyes increases and you start to feel worse as a result. In this case, you might think that Restasis "stopped working", but what actually happened was that it helped and you did something else to make your dry eyes worse. In that scenario, taking yourself off Restasis would make you worse.
