    It seems most do not understand what this drug is. It is NOT for instant relief. It is an antihistamine, it takes several doses before it is effective and one must stay on it. ONE drop in each eye daily.'-aday' get it? I occasionally get allergies bad enough to swell my eyes shut. As long as I start it before the allergy season and maintain I am golden.

    It lasted 3-4 days, was supposed to last 30 days. Not sure if I used 2 drops on 2 of the days (had also used a sample bottle). The bottle is white, so you don't know if you're getting the right amount. Rx is 2.5 ml. and sample is .5 ml, so again, how do you know how much you got? It cost $143.99; what a racket!

    8 year old son has severe seasonal allergies, on oral meds but continues to have symptoms. Using this combined with oral meds has relieved nearly all his symptoms and he is more than happy to let me apply drops! The price is high and am lucky that insurance covers some. Totally worth every penny.

    Havent had a chance to use it because couldnt afford it! Insurance (united healthcare of the river valley) does not cover it and the cost was $147.99! Seriously? In this day and time, no medications should cost that much, let alone eye drops!

    I got this prescription for itchy, red eyes. It has helped with the itch, but my eyes are just as bloodshot and uncomfortable as before. Now they're dry and they ache. Fortunately I have good insurance and only paid $20, but I'd be willing to pay more for something that actually worked.
