What Medications Cause Dry Eyes?
A patient has been using Ambien to help with sleep for awhile now and she feels that it has contributed to her dry eye problem. She was wondering if there are other people out there having issues with that.
Absolutely, Ambien can cause eye irritation. That is one of the symptoms that is in their little drug info packet. It says that it can cause eye irritation, so to me that means most likely dry eyes.
Some things that you can maybe consider to get off of drugs like Ambien is try a magnesium spray. We use it every night before we go to bed. You just spray it on your chest, or really wherever you want , and it will soak right into your system. Magnesium is great for sleep. That is something that you could consider instead of the pharmaceutical medications if you really want to get off of those to help your dry eyes.
