Psych meds & eyes: In theory, Bc all if the meds you've listed are anticholinergic to some degree, they could contribute to dry eyes, which could lead to rubbing, irritation, & red eyes. However, you describe the problem has been ongoing for months now! Have this checked by your doc &/or an ophthalmologist, who can assess for other medical causes and treat if necessary. Be good to your eyes -- they're quite useful!
