Dry Eye Syndrome

Posted by @gretchen in Eye, Ear, Nose & Throat, Nov 3, 2011

Does anyone have experience/success with finding an antihypertensive drug that will not exacerbate dry eyes? Since June I have tried metropolol, bystolic, diltiazem ER, and hydrochlorothiazide for hypertension ... all have significantly aggravated my existing dry eye condition.

I am using norvasc it seems to work fine. I already have dry eyes and I thought it was making it worse but I am not sure it is anymore after a week of use.

Thank you so much syntax 2002 for this info. re. Norvasc. Yes, it is not always clear at the beginning to know whether a drug is making dry eyes worse, or not. If you feel like it a few weeks down the road, let me know how you're doing. I am, of course, interested. Appreciative, Gretchen
