this med caused me terrible pain/itching/burning in my eye. would not suggest useage. pain was unbearable - doctor did not recommend stoppage of drug for over two wks. by then my nerves were shot from intense pain. still having problems with eye after using the drug until it goes out of my system.

I have chronic uveitis posterior/anterior (HLAB27 related to Ankylosing Spondelytis). During flares I have tried a number of different treatments: intraocular kenalog injections, prednisolone drops every 15 minutes to every hour depending on severity of flare, tobradex ointment at night, several other types of opthalmic steroids. Durezol works faster to calm flares and requires fewer drops than all others I've tried - 4x per day works better for me than generic prednisolone drops every 15 minutes. It's about 20-30x more expensive than generic prednisolone, but it's really, truly worth it. Side effects I have encountered: Slight stinging sensation when first applied to eye, increases the blur and light-sensitivity in the affected eye for around 20 minutes to an hour.

I ate shrimp and went into anaphylactic shock. I went to emergency room. I told my Doctor who immediately asked for the Durezol as he had another patient who experienced the same symptoms. He said he would contact FDA regarding this drug. He did not hear from them. My question is this. I live at the beach and have eaten shell fish all my life. I have never had a reaction. Is there information regarding this type of extreme causation with this product. I would love to eat shell fish again. Please answer.

It has been extremely helpful. I can see again, and have no pain!

I had cataracts surgery 4 weeks ago and use this med since 3 days previos. The pain and dryness is unverable. The Dr doesn't want me to stop the use. I don't think the med really helps. I don't recommend it.

This was one of three drops prescribed post-cataract surgery. It was to be administered four times a day for two weeks. The first time I used it, it burned slightly upon application. Over five days the burning gradually got worse. On the sixth day, about twenty minutes after the second application, my eye started to itch and I got several hives. I called the doctor and discontinued use immediately (doctor agreed). I applied an OTC cortisone cream to the hives one time. The next morning the hives were still visible but no longer itching, and my eye felt fine.

I have a reaction of sneezing and my left sinus is running constantly. I am not too happy with the side effects. But my eye is not as swollen. My eyesight is not clear.It's brand new to the market so we are the guinea pigs.

Used after Cataract surgery. Had no pain but did the drug work? Maybe not, but I used as directed.

A few weeks following eye surgery my eye became very inflammed and irritated. My Dr. put the Durezol drops in at his office and I felt immediate relief. One day after using the drops my eye was better than it was before it got inflammed.

My inflammation is severe and almost non responsive to these drops.

I was put on this eye drop after Lotemax was unable to rid my eye of all inflammation. After taking this for a few days, I had some blurry vision, light sensitivity (including seeing halos around lights) and numbness on the side of my face. I went to the doctor, who found my eye pressure was 50, more than double what's normal. So I immediately stopped taking this.

I never had trouble with it and could see again.

I experience Uveitis/iritis frequently, often several times a year. Durezol is amazing for treating this pain and inflammation. Having dealt with uveitis for nearly 20 years, I've seen a huge difference using durezol versus pred forte. Durezol requires much fewer doses and heals the imflammation in 3 - 6 weeks compared to 6 - 8 weeks or more with pred forte. The only negative for me is that I sometimes notice s bit of stinging when I place a drop in my eye. Frankly, it's worth a little stinging to take away the uveitis pain and heal the inflammation so quickly.

This med has helped me tremendously, the pain had went away but recently return so my dr increased my dose and it's been working fine.

Repeated development of uveitis during the weaning stage cause my prescription to change to Durezol attempting to reduce redness swelling flashes of light and severe pain caused by light sensitivity. I was excited to change medications but after 3week on Durezol and 12 weeks on different prescription for same symptoms I'm hoping for the best results. I don't want to lose this fight. So I look to the professionals for guidance.

This medication works well for Uveitis, much better than the generic Prednisone. The only issue I have had is that my vision has gotten much worse since starting the medication 2 weeks ago.
