ZADITEN (KETOTIFEN) (also called Zaditor)

Zaditen Description

Zaditen or generic Ketotifen may be recommended by your doctor or pediatrician if you or your child over three years of age experiences hay fever and other allergies that can also provoke asthma attacks. Zaditen is an antihistamine that can be taken as a preventative medicine to stop you from having an allergy induced asthma attack, but it will not stop an attack already in progress. Your child could also be prescribed other medications to take with Zaditen to treat mild allergic asthma attacks. Once you discover what you or your child are allergic to, you can devise a plan on how you can attempt to avoid triggering an attack. The generic alternative is not manufactured by the company that makes the brand product.

How This Antihistamine Works in Your Body

When your body comes into contact with an allergen, the mast cells in your body tissues become stimulated and they release histamine as part of their defense plan. This causes an increased blood flow and other chemicals begin to follow causing itchy eyes, runny nose, and congestion. These can lead to asthma symptoms with inflamed and swollen airways.

Zaditen works to stop the release of histamine from mast cells and blocks your H1 receptors so if any histamine is released, it will have no effect. Your allergy and asthma symptoms can change over time; your doctor will advise you if your dosage of Zaditen requires any adjustments. Zaditen is not a cure for allergies or asthma, but is efficient at providing you with some preventative measures for reducing your immune system’s reaction to inhaled allergens.

More About Allergic Asthma

Allergic asthma is the most common type of asthma, affecting over 2.5 million children under the age of eighteen. When you are exposed to an allergen, such as pollen, pet dander, mold, or dust mites, your immune response overreacts and believes you are in danger. With allergic asthma, your airways react as soon as the allergen is near and a chain of events is put into motion. Not only will you experience the allergic reactions of sniffing, sneezing, and itchy eyes, but now your immune system feels your airways are being threatened as well so extra mucus is produced making it more difficult to breathe freely.

Before Zaditen is Prescribed

Ask your doctor about the safety of taking Zaditen if you are pregnant, may become pregnant, or are breast feeding. Discuss other medical conditions or allergies you have with your doctor and list any over-the-counter medications or Rx drugs you take, including herbal remedies and dietary or vitamin supplements, so your doctor will know if Zaditen (also called Zaditor) is right for you.

Proper Use of Zaditen

Zaditen is a sedating antihistamine so avoid driving or performing any task that is considered unsafe until you know how your body will react to it; with special attention to young children if they are using playground equipment, horseback riding, swimming, or taking part in any activity that requires their full attention.
