Betoact Eye Drops 1.5% (5ml)
Betoact eye drop 1.5% is a topical antihistamine for treating ocular itching associated with allergic conjunctivitis. Allergic conjunctivitis is an eye inflammation caused by an allergic reaction to allergens like pollen, dust, house, or animal dander.
It contains the active ingredient Bepotastine, which has been labelled a dual-acting or multiple-acting anti-allergic medication because it inhibits histamine at the H1 receptor and prevents histamine release.
How to use Betoact Eye Drops 1.5% (5ml)?
Betoact eye dop 1.5% is for topical ophthalmic use. Follow your ophthalmologist's instructions precisely for administering bepotastine ophthalmic solution.
The usual recommended dose is one drop into the affected twice a day. If you wear contact lenses, remove them before using Bepotastine ophthalmic solution, and do not put them back in for ten minutes after using eye drops. When using Betoact eye drops, be careful not to touch your eye or surrounding areas with the bottle's dropper tip to minimize contamination of the dropper tips and medicine.
If you think you have used too much of this medicine, contact your ophthalmologist, even if there are no symptoms. If you forget to use this medicine, use a single drop as soon as you remember and then go back to your normal dosing regimen. Do not try to compensate for the missed drops by applying more than one dose at a time.
The ophthalmic solution should be used regularly at evenly spaced time intervals prescribed by an ophthalmologist. Avoid missing doses and finish the full course of treatment even if you feel better. Stopping the medication too early worsens or causes returning symptoms.
