Restasis for Dry eyes

My Eye Doctor suggested I keep Restasis in the fridge to make more comfortable and reduce the burning and to keep using ir for 2 days.  Does Restasis lose its effectiveness when placed in the fridge.  Also when are results typically seen?  I have a TBUT of 5 and hoping to see an increase if ues consistently.

Restasis will not lose it effectiveness in the frig.  It will take a month or more to see if the medication helps.

I keep mine in the fridge also, opened and unopened. The doctor had recommended to keep the opened one in the fridge so I can use it till it's empty, but I am not sure about the unopened ones.
