The concentration of cyclosporine after topical application in adults at a concentration of 0.05% 2 times / day is lower than the determined value - 0.1 ng / ml.

The emulsion contained in one bottle for individual use should be used immediately after opening the bottle - the remaining amount of the drug after instillation must be disposed of immediately after use. Do not allow the tip of the vial to touch the eyes or any surface to exclude the possibility of contamination of its contents. You should not use Restasis when wearing contact lenses. Contact lenses are generally not recommended for patients with decreased tear production. If the lenses are still used, they must be removed before using the drug and can be reinstalled 15 minutes after using the drug Restasis. Influence on the ability to drive vehicles and control mechanisms
Restasis has little effect on the ability to drive vehicles and mechanisms. If the patient's visual acuity temporarily decreases after using the drug, it is not recommended to drive a car and engage in activities that require increased attention until it is restored.
No cases of overdose of the drug Restasis were reported. With local application of the drug in the form of eye drops, due to the low concentration of cyclosporine, an overdose is unlikely.
