General considerations for those taking Zaditor include the following:
- This medication comes in the form of an eyedrop. It is used in each eye twice a day.
- If you wear contact lenses, you must remove them to use the drops. In order to prevent the lens from absorbing the preservatives in Zaditor, be sure to wait at least 10 minutes after using the drops before reinserting the lens. Do not wear your contact lenses if your eye is still red.
- In order to prevent contamination of the drops, do not touch the tip of the dropper to any surface, including the surface of the eye.
- For Zaditor to work properly, it must be taken as directed.
There is only one standard recommended dose for this product. As is always the case, do not adjust your Zaditor dose unless your healthcare provider specifically instructs you to do so.

Just like any medicine, Zaditor can cause side effects. However, not everyone who uses the drug will experience problems. Most people tolerate it quite well. If side effects do occur, in most cases, they are minor and either require no treatment or can easily be treated by you or your healthcare provider. Serious side effects are less common.
Possible side effects of Zaditor include but are not limited to:
- Red eyes
- Stuffy or runny nose.
