You said you never had high blood pressure and had a rise after 6 weeks of restasis - the exact same thing is happening to me! Did your BP go back to normal - did you stop the restasis? I have just stopped using it to see if my bp will go back to normal but didn't know how long the drug remains in your system - thanks for any info!!
