Response from Dr. Young
Hello and thanks for your post.
Based on what you've described, there's no reason to stop your medications immediately (if at all). Having blood shot eyes isn't a reason to discontinue medications.
If you were my patient, I'd instruct you to continue taking your medications as prescribed and follow up about your symptoms in the next days.
I hope this helps, BY
