Ketotifen Drug Information

Medication Information: In some people, exposure to substances such as pollen, animal hair, or dust can cause allergy symptoms. Cells in the nasal mucosa produce histamine when exposed to such substances. This leads to inflammation (rhinitis) which results in sneezing and runny nose. Ketotifen, a type of antihistamine, inhibits histamine symptoms and relieves allergy symptoms.

  • If you have glaucoma.
  • If you have prostate problems or difficulty urinating.

  • If you have ever been allergic to any medication.

 

Possible side effects of ketotifen

All medications, along with their positive effects, can cause unwanted side effects in the body. However, these complications do not occur in all people. Over time, your body will adjust to the new medicine and these symptoms will go away, but if the following symptoms persist or become painful, consult your doctor.

  • Feeling angry, disturbed sleep: Consult your doctor if you are bothered.
  • Drowsiness and drowsiness: Avoid driving and working with tools in this situation.
  • Dry mouth: Use sugar-free gum.

Tell your doctor if you have any other symptoms that you think may be due to ketotifen.
