Eyes Home > What Is Ketotifen Used For?
Ketotifen is a medication that is used for temporarily relieving eye allergy symptoms. Specifically, it is used to treat eye itching related to allergies due to animal hair or dander, pollen, and ragweed. This non-prescription eye drop is approved for treating eye allergies in children as young as three years old. Medications are sometimes used for "off-label" purposes, but there are currently no universally accepted off-label uses for ketotifen.
