Ketotifen

When and How to Take Ketotifen

General considerations include the following:
 
  • This medication comes in the form of an eye drop. 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 the medication, 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 the medication to work properly, it must be taken as directed.
