the top of head itch is so severe I feel like someone who is scratching from lice infection. I'd been taking Xarelto for about a month when I noticed the severe head itch. I've also had itch on back but nowhere near as severe as on head. I don't see any rash anywhere.
My doctor prescribed Restasis for my dry eyes after I had PRK eye surgery. My eye is droopy now and the condition is called ptosis. I am wondering when I stop using Restasis if my eyelid will go back to normal.

Was diagnosed with choroiditis about 7 1/2 years ago and just started taking Restasis. Inflammation seems to be the common cause of choroiditis and dry eye. Just wondered how long it took others for Restasis to make a difference.
