Cequa is a brand-name prescription medication. The medical name for dry eye is keratoconjunctivitis sicca.

A dry eye can affect one or both eyes. If you have this condition, you may experience other symptoms besides dry eyes. They include burning, redness or itching of the eyes and sensitivity to light.

The active drug in Cequa is cyclosporine, which belongs to a group of medications called calcineurin inhibitor immunosuppressants.

Use and Dosage

Use Cequa eye drops exactly as prescribed by your doctor. Follow all directions on your prescription label and read all medication guides or instruction sheets.

Use the medicine about every 12 hours. Remove contact lenses first.

Wash your hands before using eye medication.

To apply the eye drops: Tilt your head back slightly and pull down your lower eyelid to create a small pocket. Hold the dropper above the eye and squeeze a drop into this pocket. Close your eyes for 1 or 2 minutes.

Use only the number of drops your doctor has prescribed.

Wait at least 15 minutes before inserting contact lenses or using artificial tears.

Do not touch the tip of the eye dropper or place it directly on your eye. A contaminated dropper can infect your eye, which could lead to serious vision problems.

Cequa eye drops should be clear and colourless.

Each single-use bottle is for one use only (in both eyes). Throw the bottle away after one use, even if there is still medicine left inside.

The Cequa dosage your doctor prescribes will depend on several factors. These may include:

  • The type and severity of the condition you are using Cequa to treat
  • Other medical conditions you may have

The following information describes dosages that are commonly used or recommended. However, be sure to take the dosage your doctor prescribes for you. Your doctor will determine the best dosage to fit your needs.

Cequa can cause mild or serious side effects. The following lists contain some of the key side effects that may occur while taking Cequa. These lists do not include all side effects.

For more information about the possible side effects of Cequa, talk with your doctor or pharmacist. They can give you tips on how to deal with any side effects that may be bothersome.

Mild side effects of Cequa can include:

  • Burning feeling in the eye
  • Eye irritation
  • Headache
  • Inflammation of the eyelid
  • Inflammation of the conjunctiva (the clear tissue that covers your eye)

Most of these side effects may go away within a few days or a couple of weeks. But if they become more severe or do not go away, talk with your doctor or pharmacist.

Serious side effects

Serious side effects from Cequa are not common, but they can occur. Call your doctor right away if you have serious side effects.

Serious side effects can include:

  • Urinary tract infection
  • Allergic reaction


Follow all directions on your medicine label and package. Tell each of your healthcare providers about all your medical conditions, allergies, and all medicines you use.

What if I miss a dose?

If you miss a dose of Cequa, talk with your doctor or pharmacist about when to take your next dose. Depending on how long it has been since your missed dose, they may recommend:

  • Taking your dose of Cequa as soon as possible
  • Skipping your missed dose and taking your next dose as scheduled

Will I need to use this drug long-term?

Cequa is meant to be used as a long-term treatment. If you and your doctor determine that Cequa is safe and effective for you, you will likely take it long-term.

Why is Cequa so expensive?

Cequa is expensive because it was approved in 2018 and is not yet available as a generic. Cequa also uses a special nano micellar technology to help deliver poorly water-soluble drugs into the eye. The generic for Cequa may not be available for many years due to patent protection. There are other options: the manufacturer offers a copay card if you are eligible which may reduce your Cequa cost to $0, or a generic cyclosporine eye drop option for Restasis is available. Talk to your doctor.
