Some of the commonly reported side effects of Rescula include burning, stinging, and itching of the eyes. In most cases, reactions are minor and easy to treat. However, contact your healthcare provider if you have more serious problems, such as blurred vision, eye pain, or sensitivity to light.

An Introduction to Rescula Side Effects

Just like any medicine, Rescula® (unoprostone ophthalmic solution) can cause side effects. However, not everyone who uses the medication will have problems. In fact, most people tolerate it quite well. If side effects do occur, in most cases, they are minor and either require no treatment or are treated easily by you or your healthcare provider.
