Re: Restasis doesn't work if you have punctal plugs
I started Restasis in August and so far I notice some slight improvement, although was told it takes at least 4 months to work. I tried to find out as much as I could about the Restasis, since I tend to have allergic reactions to a lot of drugs. I read that Restasis works by opening up the ducts, which they think get clogged by "debris". (Hope I'm explaining this adequately.)
So I'd think in order for the Restasis to rid the ducts of this material that blocks them, the Restasis would have to have access to the ducts. If the ducts had plugs in them, then maybe the Restasis wouldn't work.
Just my impression.
