Hello I am new to the group and would like some advice I have been diagnosed...
Thera Tear Nutrition is a combination of flaxseed, fish oil and vitamin E. I began feeling relief within a matter of days. The bottle says several weeks. If I miss a day, I begin to feel dryness in my eyes right away.
Donna, so it's an eye drop?
Xxxxxxx Yzzzzzz it is a gel tab. After 8 years of taking evoxac, I started have side effects. I found an old eye doctor who told me he suffered from Sjogrens and uses flaxseed oil. I did some research and found Thera Tears Nutrition had flaxseed as well as fish oil and vitamin E. I take a flaxseed oil supplement daily as welI. I suffer from schlederma and have difficulty with my swallowing. Since taking the flaxseed oil, my swallowing has become less difficult. I have been taking these two combined for the last year. It works for me. I rarely use eye drops anymore. I do have moisture holding eyeglasses for car rides.
Okay, so it's a gel tab you take by mouth?
I had to stop taking omega 3 gave me gout so I switched to flaxseed gel caps works just as good
Xxxxxxx Yzzzzzz what mg do you take?
Yes, I buy Murine eye drops from Dollar Tree (the red eye version) for a buck and use them daily. It does seem to help. :) <3
I take 1400 mg tqabs of flaxseed 3 times a day
Eyes need eye drops in day and lube in them at night, easy to do and sorts them out, otherwise if you don't use the stuff you can damage corneas : )
