Is patanol (olopatadine) and alaway the same group? I have allergy eyes. Itching , red, dry. Which one to use first or how?

Is patanol (olopatadine) and alaway the same group? I have allergy eyes. Itching , red, dry.  Which one to use first or how?

Yes: Alaway & Patanol (olopatadine) are both topical ocular antihistamines. Both useful for itchy, watery eyes once to twice daily. Coincident with ocular allergies is dry eye symptoms, which can be augmented by systemic antihistamine/decongestant treatment.

Those don't work as well for eye allergies, and this often necessitates an antihistamine eye drop which you can get a prescription for from your doctor. If there is a lot of white or yellow discharge it could be an infection. I would suggest you have your doctor take a look. ...Read more

Possibly: Allergic conjunctivitis causes redness, watering and itching. The conjunctiva (inside of your eyelid) can have a cobblestone appearance. Sinus congestion is also common.
