Seems to stop itchiness/grittiness very quickly but doesn't seem to provide long-term relief. Might even cause dry eyes to worsen. Needed genteal soon after. $50 co-pay!!! Way too pricey. Will never use or refill again.

Outrageously expensive. There has got to be something out there that works better than this. I've bought 2 bottles thinking that it works somewhat, but I'm ready to give up and try something else.

During allergy season I cannot wear my contacts unless I use Pataday. I have tried many other eye drops, but Pataday is the only thing that works for me. The drops do irritate my eyes if I administer them in the morning, but not if I put them in at night. Bought a 3 month supply from www.medstoreinternational.com for the price of 1 month. It is well worth the money in my opinion.

The price of this drug is just out of this world. I paid 109.00 for 2.5ml. First I thought it to be wrong but found someone else here that paid 90 dollars. Imagine using this at a bottle a month...i.e., that's over 1200 dollars per year. I am sorry, that is a wicked rip off folks. DO NOT BUY!

Comment:
My son is using this medication. He is 4. His eyes get so red as soon as anything starts blooming in the spring. It keeps his eyes from swelling shut but it does not keep them from getting red and itchy. It is the best thing we have found so far though.
