Zaditor Eye Drops Side Effects
Side effects of Zaditor may include a burning, stinging, or irritation of the eye, headache, or a runny/stuffy nose. You may also notice a bad taste in your mouth after using the drops.

What is Zaditor?
Zaditor contains an ingredient called Ketotifen, an antihistamine for the eyes that helps blocks certain natural substances in the body called histamines. It is also a mast cell stabilizer that may help to prevent allergic reactions by reducing the release of certain natural substances in the body that may cause allergic reactions.
What Are Zaditor Eye Drops Used For?

Pull the lower eyelid down and hold the dropper directly over the eye and apply one drop into the lower eyelid. Look down and close your eyes for approximately one to two minutes.
