Comment from: 35-44on Treatment for less than 1 month Published: April 30

The medication was relatively easy to use (a standard eye dropper), but it was consistently hard for me to get the medication into the pocket that you form by pinching out the skin under your eye (usually 3 or 4 drops would be wasted before I got one drop in the eye). I ended up just dropping the one drop at the outer side of my eye. Also, because the medication tastes horrid, you should pinch closed your tear-ducts after you do the drops, so that the medication doesn't go down your throat. This treatment is VERY expensive ($323 per vial at Walgreen's without a patient access card), so ask for a patient access card from your doctor prior to filling the prescription. I filled a prescription for 2 vials (for a 10-day treatment regimen, but I used less than 1 vial for my treatment.
