Non-ocular Adverse Reactions
The most frequent non-ocular adverse reactions, occurring in less than 3% of subjects with eyes treated with LASTACAFT®, were nasopharyngitis and headache. Some of these events were similar to the underlying disease being studied.
The following adverse reactions have been identified during postmarketing use of LASTACAFT® in clinical practice.

These reactions include: eye discharge, eye swelling, erythema of eyelid, eyelid edema, hypersensitivity, and somnolence.
