I been suffered perennial allergies since 8 years ago and till now. Does both alcon patanol (olopatadine) and flarex can help to recovery. ?

See below: Patanol, (olopatadine) made by Alcon, is an eye drop with anti-histamine & anti-cholinergic activity :good for allergies. Flarex is a steroid eye drop. I'm not an eye doctor, but my belief is that, while both are effective for perennial allergies, the former is safe while the latter is not. You can develop an eye infection which can be devastating and mask the signs with Flarex. How about cetirizine pills? ...Read more

Hello doc im using alcon patanol (olopatadine) to treat my itchy eyes and it effective but my face become puffy especially at eyes area?

Eye allergy: Puffiness around the eyes is common manifestation of the allergy. The Patanol (olopatadine) should help with this. However, in rare instances, an allergy to a preservative in the eye drops develops which CAUSES worsening eye redness/puffiness. Discuss with your doctor or Allergist as a trial on an alternative may be warranted. ...Read more

My doctor prescribe alcon maxitrol (dexamethasone neomycin and polymyxin) 5ml eye drop/ear drops for my 4.5 year old son for his ear. Can i give this to my 1.5 year toddler for his ear too?

Check with doc first: It is possible that Maxitrol (dexamethasone neomycin and polymyxin) might treat year 1.5 year old son in the same was as the older son. But the younger might have an entirely different issue. Your best strategy is to check with the same doctor who I assume is a pediatrician, who can decide if the condition is one that Maxitrol (dexamethasone neomycin and polymyxin) will help. Otherwise you are treating on hope rather than fact. ...Read more
