OLOPATADINE SPRAY - NASAL
COMMON BRAND NAME(S): Patanase
USES: Olopatadine is used to relieve symptoms of seasonal allergies that occur in the nose, such as runny/itchy/stuffy nose, sneezing, and post-nasal drip. This medication is an antihistamine. It works by blocking certain natural substances called histamines that are responsible for allergic symptoms.
Do not use this medication in children younger than 2 years unless specifically directed by the doctor. To decrease the risk for serious side effects, carefully follow all of the doctor's dosage directions. Do not give other cough and cold medication that might contain the same or similar ingredients (see also Drug Interactions section). Ask your doctor or pharmacist about other ways to relieve cough and cold symptoms (such as saline nose drops/spray, using a humidifier or infant nasal suction bulb).
HOW TO USE: Read the Patient Information Leaflet provided by your pharmacist before you start using olopatadine and each time you get a refill. Follow the instructions on how to properly use this medication. If you have any questions, consult your doctor or pharmacist.
Follow the instructions for properly priming the spray pump before using the bottle for the first time and if you have not used the medication for more than 7 days. Avoid spraying in your eyes or directly onto the nasal septum (the wall between the two nostrils).
Use this medication in your nose, usually twice a day in both nostrils or as directed by your doctor.
Use this medication regularly to get the most benefit from it. To help you remember, use it at the same times each day.
Keep track of the number of sprays you use, including test sprays used to prime the bottle. Discard the bottle after you have used the labeled number of sprays on the product package, even if the bottle is not completely empty. By doing this, you can be sure that you get the correct amount of drug in each spray.
Tell your doctor if your symptoms do not improve.
