In brief: All increase tears

The medications you have listed can all help improve tear properies in selected patients and you need to work with your eyemd to see what will work for you.
Pataday is an antihistamine that helps mostly itching, but dryness associated with allergies will improve. Azasite is an antibiotic for meibomian dysfunction. Lotemax (loteprednol) quiets inflammation, and Restasis also helps with inflammation and tears.
