Have never had high blood pressure. Have been on Restasis for 6 weeks and have had a rise in blood pressure.
Betty022 on Jul, 14, 2014:
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!!
