Lutein and bilberry pills for eyes and side effects?

I recently bought Lutein from Amazon and started taking it along with my other meds. First, I googled this new product to see what side effects it may have.
Nothing too negative, less than a week later I had constipation, some thing I rarely suffer. I stopped taking it and sure enough no more constipation.
I should mention that I have a chronic dry eye condition for many years, have undergone many different procedures to correct this problem, but the condition remains chronic.

I was put on a vitamin containing lutein and had a reaction. My mouth tingled and lips swelled. Dr. tried another vitamin but had a similar reaction. I am now seeing an allergist to determine if the marigold flower extract( lutein) is the cause or something else. Reports keep saying very unlikely lutein causes any side effects yet I am leaning towards this. Hoping to supplement diet with vegetables containing lutein instead.
