Zaditor Eye Drops

Zaditor® (ketotifen ophthalmic solution) is a medication used to temporarily relieve itching due to eye allergies (known medically as allergic conjunctivitis). It comes in the form of an eye drop and is available without a prescription.
 
Zaditor eye drops only come in one strength -- Zaditor 0.025%, available in a 5-mL bottle. There is only one standard recommended dosage for this medication, regardless of your age or the severity of your allergy symptoms. Typically, the drops are applied to each affected eye twice a day.
 
Zaditor belongs to a group of allergy medications known as antihistamines. Specifically, it is an H1 receptor antagonist. This means that it blocks a specific type of histamine receptor in the body (called H1 receptors). Since the symptoms of allergic reactions are partly caused by histamine, Zaditor can help prevent or relieve allergy symptoms. In addition to blocking histamine receptors, this medication seems to decrease the release of histamine from cells in the body and may also inhibit other substances produced by the body in response to an allergen.
