Restasis - Overview
Restasis, containing the active ingredient cyclosporine, is a medication used for improving tear production in people with specific forms of inflammatory eye disorders. People who need a Restasis prescription can use Push Health to connect with a medical provider who can prescribe Restasis multidose when appropriate and indicated to do so.
How Does Restasis Work?
Restasis belongs to a class of medications known as immunomodulator medications. Restasis is used to increase tear production in patients, particularly in people who are thought to have suppressed tear production from inflammation due to keratoconjunctivitis sicca. The active ingredient in Restasis, cyclosporine, may exert these effects by reducing inflammation in areas of the eye which are thought to contribute to this form of dry eye syndrome - the lacrimal glands and the ocular surface. The result of decreased swelling is improvement in hydration of the eye via tear production.
Restasis - Coupon and Cost
Restasis is a type of ophthalmic emulsion (solution) that contains cyclosporine 0.5 mg (the active ingredient) in each mL of solution. Cyclosporine itself is a white powder. Restasis is an expensive medication, costing almost $10 per Restasis 0.4 mL vial at most pharmacies in the United States. Restasis coupons are sometimes available online or through the manufacturer. Some insurance plans may also cover the cost of a Restasis prescription if it is covered under the plan. When considering the costs associated with a Restasis prescription, it is helpful to know that many medical providers prescribe one drop of Restasis eye drops twice per day in each eye although the exact prescription depends on the provider and the patient. Restasis ophthalmic solution is preservative-free and is packaged in sterile, single use vials. Restasis eye drops should typically be stored between 15° C and 25° C but consult the package insert for exact directions.
Can I Buy Restasis Online?
Restasis OTC is not available to be bought at US-based pharmacies as Restasis requires a prescription to be dispensed by a pharmacy. As such, one cannot simply buy Restasis online without first consulting with a medical provider. People who need a Restasis prescription, however, can use Push Health to connect with a licensed provider who can prescribe Restasis when appropriate and indicated to do so.
Restasis - Side Effects
Restasis can cause side effects which is why potential concerns should be discussed with one's medical provider before using the medication. Side effects resulting from Restasis use include burning, itching, stinging and redness in the eyes. Eye injury and facial swelling have also been reported after Restasis use. Restasis should not be used while using contact lenses. Restasis and alcohol should not be used together. People with a known hypersensitivity to Restasis or cyclosporine should not use the medication.
