What are Rapitil Eye Drops?

Rapitil Eye Drops are used to treat and prevent the symptoms of allergic conjunctivitis caused by pet allergies and hay fever. They are also used in the treatment of vernal kerato conjunctivitis, a more severe type of allergic conjunctivitis.

These eye drops contain the active ingredient 2% nedocromil sodium, a medicine used to provide relief from eye symptoms of allergies such as red, watery, itchy eyes.

How do Rapitil Eye Drops work?

Rapitil Eye Drops contain nedocromil sodium that reduces allergic responses. Although it is not known exactly how this ingredient works, it's thought to 'stabilise' mast cells in the body.

These cells are an important part of the body's immune system, and when exposed to allergens such as pet fur or pollen, they release substances such as histamine.

This leads to an immune response, causing inflammation. Eye inflammation causes symptoms such as watery discharge, itching and redness.

Nedocromil sodium stabilises mast cells to prevent inflammation-causing substances like histamine from being released, preventing an allergic response and relieving eye allergy symptoms.
