Description

Oloridin Pharmacodynamics
Olopatadine is a potent selective anti-allergic/antihistamine drug whose pharmacological effects are developed through several different mechanisms of action.
It is an antagonist of histamine (the main mediator of allergic reactions in humans) and prevents histamine-induced release of inflammatory cytokines in conjunctival epithelial cells.
In vitro studies suggest inhibition of proinflammatory mediator release by conjunctival mast cells.
In patients with nasolacrimal ducts patency, local application of olopatadine in the form of instillations into the conjunctival sac reduced the severity of nasal symptoms often accompanying seasonal allergic conjunctivitis.
Olopatadine has no clinically significant effect on pupil diameter.

Indications
Treatment of symptoms of seasonal allergic conjunctivitis.

Contraindications
Hypersensitivity to the components of the drug, pregnancy and lactation, age less than 3 years.
Caution
In patients with concomitant “dry” eye syndrome and corneal diseases.
Use during pregnancy and breastfeeding
Fertility
No studies have been conducted on the effect of topical application of olopatadine in ophthalmology on human fertility.
Pregnancy
There are no or limited data on topical use of olopatadine in ophthalmology in pregnant women. Animal studies have obtained data on the toxic effects of olopatadine on reproductive function when used systemically. The use of olopatadine during pregnancy and women of childbearing age who do not use contraception is not recommended.
Breast-feeding period
Excretion of olopatadine into breast milk has been observed when using the drug in animals. The risk for newborns and infants cannot be excluded. It is not recommended to use the drug during breast feeding.
