I sounds like it is for dry eye. And though none of us here are in a connect for that, I wanted folks to know if they take it.

Increases tear production in patients whose tear production is presumed to be supressed because of ocular imflammation associated with Keratoconjunctivitis sicca. Thanks for the update on this. Was looking on the computer and noted the update. Thanks,wound lady.
