In brief: Yes
Both these drops are vaso-constrictors that constrict the blood vessels on the surface of the eye.
They should only be used for a short time. Long term usage can cause rebound vaso-congestion which results in worsening redness in the eyes when the drop is not used. Using it more than a few times a day for a few weeks is likely too long.
