Allergy Relief with Ketotifen Eye Drops

Filed under: Uncategorized — drwatson @ 8:30 am

How do Ketotifen eye drops work?

This medication, which can be found at Online Pharmacies Canada, works by blocking the release of histamine. Histamine is stored in mast cells and is produced as a defence mechanism by your body. When your body is introduced to an allergen, like cat hair or flower pollen, mast cells are stimulated into action to release histamine.

Upon release, histamine binds to its receptors causing, through a series of events, allergy symptoms. If you have eye allergies your symptoms may include inflammation, redness, itchiness and watering of the eye. Ketotifen eye drops block the histamine receptors in the eye stopping the inflammation and providing allergy relief.

Should I tell my doctor anything before using Ketotifen?
