My FP prescribed Patanol after I complained of severe itching,scratchiness and moderate pain. I went to pick it up at the drugstore and the copay was $35.00 so I cannot imagine what the cost to the insuror is. I bought Clear Eyes ACR and took Claritin generic tablets and the toatl cost was $11.59. I had great relief and saved alot of money. Oh, by the way I am also a pharmacist who knows drugs ...

Works good but do not expect to get rid of symptoms go off. Expensive too. Better than over the counter drops.

I've had been using this for about 3 years and it works great during allergy season. I wish it were less expensive.

I have suffered for many years with this condition and finally found a doctor that helped me. There's no more burning, itching and swelling. He also has me using Systane (lubricant eye drops) several times a day. This has really helped with dry eyes. I tried other well known lubricants in the past, they never worked as well as Systane.

Comment:
My son has been using Patanol for about 4 years now and trust me when Allergy season came by he looked like Rocky Balboa. It was sad because the school would call me to have him pick up so that the kids wouldn't tease him, now he doesn't have that problem at all with this medication. It works well.
