Should I be concerned that I sometimes use twice the amount of Antihistamine drops recommended for my itchy eyes
AUG 31, 2015
For the past couple years, I've used Alaway antihistamine drops a lot for my itchy eyes. I didn't realize it, but I've been using them wrong for years. Often times I will put two drops in each eye instead of just one (and sometimes repeat two more in each eye 12 hours later.) Do I need to worry about any effects from this?
The eye cannot contain a large volume of drops so it is likely that the second drop just washed out the first. I do not think you need to worry about any effects from your use of this drop in this way. However, if you have been using the drop very frequently, more than several times a week for a long period of time, I would advise you to see an ophthalmologist to determine if a different treatment may work better.
