I'm trying to remember a term...does it even exist?

I've been taking a variety of eye drops, trying to find the one that will moisten my eyes without causing them to be even drier between treatments than they were before I started this business. What is the term for a solution becoming not only ineffective, but eventually making the problem worse? All I can think of is blow-back, back-track, backlash, feedback loop, and something else (that also includes the word 'back') that I forgot already <sheesh!>, none of which are quite what I'm looking for. DH can't think of it either...dayyam, we usually have different senioritis problems and can help each other out in such cases.
