Olopatadine is a medication used for managing itching related to allergic conjunctivitis. Push Health can connect people who need an olopatadine prescription with a licensed medical provider who can prescribe olopatadine eye drops if appropriate to do so.
What Is Olopatadine Hydrochloride?
Olopatadine, marketed under the names Pataday, Patanol and Pazeo, is a solution used for relieving itching in patients with conjunctivitis related to allergies. Olopatadine works by stabilizing specific cells called mast cells. Olopatadine is also a histamine H1 antagonist and helps block activation of cells in the immune system known as eosinophils. Olopatadine hydrochloride powder itself is a white, crystalline powder that is soluble in water. Olopatadine should be generally stored between 2° C and 25° C.
Olopatadine (Pataday) - Cost and Dosage
Olopatadine is available as Olopatadine solution 0.2% with each mL of solution containing olopatadine 2.22 mg. Olopatadine is typically prescribed as one drop in each affected eye daily but it depends on the prescribing medical provider. Olopatadine is moderately affordable, costing approximately $26 for 2.5 mL of olopatadine 0.2% solution. Olopatadine coupons may be available online to reduce the cost further and some insurance plans may also cover the cost of olopatadine hydrochloride eye drops.
