Comment:
My Doctor recommended Patanol because he said that my eyes looked red. It is too expensive. My co-pay was $50.00 This medicine caused blurred vision and also my upper eyelids were puffy. I had much whether have slightly red eyes than have blurred vision and puffy lids. I did not like Patanol and thought it was a waste of money!

Comment:
The last 3 days of use, I have developed severe dry eyes. I have had to discontinue use of Patanol and use OTC eye drops to lubricate my eyes about every 30 -60 minutes depending upon my activity. This is a great disappointment to me as the drug has been very effective for many years and also I have to pay full price for it and my hayfever season has just started. $80 wasted!

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.
