  • Replace the dropper cap after each use, and keep the bottle tightly closed.If you are using another kind of eye medication (drops or ointment), wait at least 5 minutes before applying it.

  • To help you remember, use it at the same times each day.
  • Continue to use this medication as prescribed until pollen season is over or you are no longer exposed to the allergic substance, even when allergic symptoms disappear or improve.If your condition persists or worsens, if you develop new symptoms, or if you think you have a serious medical problem, seek immediate medical attention.
