Today's Drama: Ointment hoarding amidst the Refresh PM & Lacri-Lube production hiatus.

Posted by Allyson Marcos on

"It's just not the same."


Refresh PM and LacriLube have been out of production since 2017.

Doctors don't know.

Patients are struggling for alternatives, and mostly without help, because the manufacturer (Allergan) has failed to communicate with the doctors.

This is so wrong.

  • certainly by now someone has an equivalent [non prescription] coming in from abroad- spill the details so others can get-together or pool resources with dryeyeshop

  • I had no help from my doctor, who clearly was unaware of the unavailability issue. I found VitA-Pos on my own, but it doesn’t work very well. Pharmacists seem a bit more clued up, but the dates they give for resumption of supply keep passing and still no LacriLube. No one seems to know what the issue is that is holding up production?
