    I HAVE USED THIS MEDICATION FOR SEVERAL YEARS AND IT DOES HELP THE ITCHING. HOWEVER THE COST HAS GONE OUT OF SIGHT AT $130/SMALL BOTTLE. MY Dr. TOLD ME TO SWITCH TO ZADITOR OPHT. IT IS OVER THE COUNTER AND DOES THE SAME THING AS ELASTAT.

    Over a month ago, I developed an allergic reaction to a new eyeliner that I used and this reaction lasted for over a month. I finally went to my mother's ophthalmologist and he prescribed elestat. These drops DO work but they can cause some itching and dryness which can really irritate your eyes if you don't use enough drops. Glad that it provided relief for my allergies though. :)

    Works better as preventive, not treating current eye allergy reaction.

    **EDIT: I meant to say, "but they can cause some itching and dryness which can really irritate your eyes if you don't use enough LUBRICATING drops". It's an antihistamine which means it's will also dry your eyes out a bit.

    Works only marginally better than OTC products - not worth the expense
