With twice the concentration of PATANOL® solution, it is the first eye drop approved for once-a-day dosing for ocular itching associated with allergic conjunctivitis.
Wait 10 minutes after using PATADAY™ solution before inserting contact lenses. Patients should not touch the bottle tip to any surface to avoid the risk of contamination.
This product should not be taken by patients with a sensitivity or allergy to its ingredients. Safety and efficacy have not been determined in children under age three. Caution should be used when administering this drug to pregnant or nursing women. The most common side effect of PATADAY™ solution is headache, but patients may also experience blurred vision, burning, stinging or nausea, as well as other effects.
