Launch of Generic Patanol

Released: 12/09/2015   By: Carl Richie, Pharmacy Director

The generic equivalent of Patanol (olopatadine) has just been launched. Patanol is an antihistamine that reduces the natural chemical histamine in the body. It is used to treat itching, burning, redness, watering and other eye symptoms caused by allergic conditions.

Generic prescription drugs approved by the FDA have the same high quality and strength as brand name drugs. Generic prescription drug manufacturing and packaging sites must pass the same quality standards as those of brand name drugs.

Over the next 30 days, Carlisle Medical will be contacting physicians to inform them that the generic version of Patanol (olopatadine) is available.
