Zaditor Warnings And Recalls
I was told to use Zaditor or Alaway, is one better than the other? I see Alaway is a little cheaper, but I want the best one. What would you suggest?
Both are the same: Active ingredient, ketotifen, choose whatever you like, however if it is doesn't work, you need to follow up with your doctor or ophthalmologist, good luck
Zaditor (ketotifen) and acular: Zaditor (ketotifen) is an over the counter drop used twice daily for allergic conjunctivitis. Acular (ketorolac) is a prescription NSAID eye drop which can also be used for allergy but is often used for eye inflammation and pain following surgery such as cataract surgery or prk.
Maybe: In reality "pink eye" can have a lot of causes but usually refers to conjunctivitis. There are different types of conjunctivitis. The most common would be viral, bacterial and allergic. Zaditor (ketotifen) will help most with allergic conjunctivitis usually from seasonal allergies.See 1 more doctor answer
Eyedrops: It is not unusual to feel eye drops at the back of your throat. The next time you use the drops block the tear duct in the corner of your lower eyelid near the nose which should prevent that feeling you experience.
Can zaditor (ketotifen) eye drop make eyes more sensitive and effect sinuses, i. E make you nasally, etc?
Yes and no: Zaditor (ketotifen) is a topical antihistamine drop. Antihistamines stop itching but also causes drying which wiuld make eyes more sedative. Use artificial tear drops along with radiator besides making eyes feel better it will also help the allergies by flushing the allergens out of your eyes, . My guess is the nasalness is fron your allergies. Allergie can also effect the sinuses. You could also see an allergis.
Dr. Told me to use Zaditor (ketotifen) eye drops for allergies but it hasn't helped at all. Other suggestions?
Others: Zaditor™ is an over the counter, moderately effective ocular antihistamine that may decrease itchy eyeballs. More powerful prescription ocular antihistamines are available. Also, try warm compresses and gentle eyelid hygiene, as blepharitis may be part of your symptom complex. As always, if you're not getting better, a reevaluation is necessary. Sometimes a different medical approach needs a trial
What's the diffrence between patanol and zaditor (ketotifen)? My 4yrold son has problems with eyes matting shut and his dr said allergies. What can I do or buy
VernalConjunctivitis: Regarding Patanol vs. Zaditor, (ketotifen) look at: http://www. Medscape. Com/viewarticle/489382 under the care of an ophthalmologist, steroid drops may be effective, though an ophthalmologist should verify the diagnosis in a toddler, since a "shield ulcer" can interfere with visual function. Another consideration is a low-grade bacterial conjunctivitis, so visit an ophthalmologist trusted by your pediatrician.
Bumbs in eyes. Last year I went to a doctor he said it was alergies & to take zaditor (ketotifen). It didn't work & I wake up to a white film every morning in eyes?
Small white bumps under (r) eye, serious pain whole (r) eye. Scratched open now have mucus and blurry vision? Zaditor (ketotifen) ok? Soft contact wearer
Under my eyes and around them is very dry. It also has been itchy and flakey. I use eye drops called zaditor (ketotifen) a doctor told me to but it hasn't helped?
Dermatitis: By your description, you likely have periocular dermatitis that would not respond to Zaditor™. You are best to stop the eye drop & cleanse with a mild facial soap that is hypoallergenic and to avoid applying anything to your eyelids or eyelashes. Because the causes of dermatitis are many, as are the treatments, it's best to have an exam by an Eye MD, to evaluate & treat with appropriate medication
