ZADITEN ORAL DROPS (also called Zaditor) (KETOTIFEN)

Help for Children with Asthma and Allergy Problems

Zaditen Oral Drops (also called Zaditor) is a prescription strength medicine for children as young as 6 months that have problems with breathing due to allergies and asthma. This antihistamine helps reduce shortness of breath due to inflammation in the airways as a response to allergens that can trigger an asthma attack. Your doctor or pediatrician may prescribe Zaditen Oral Drops to be taken with other asthma medications.

How the Active Ingredient Works to Relieve Asthma Symptoms

Zaditen Oral Drops contains Ketotifen, an antihistamine drug that can reduce inflammation in the airways that can be triggered by an allergen as harmless seeming as pollen, dust, or pet dander. Some immune systems hit the panic button when contact is made with an allergen and certain chemicals are quickly dispatched to try and chase the threat out. Chemicals such as histamine will cause swelling and inflammation of the airways in your or your child’s lungs. Ketotifen can help decrease the production of the inflammatory chemicals so airways relax and breathing is less labored.

Allergic Asthma or Non-Allergic Asthma?

Both allergic and non-allergic asthma display about the same symptoms that can include coughing, wheezing, chest tightness, and a shortness of breath. Those with allergic asthma have inflamed airways as well as a sticky mucus that can make breathing easy difficult compared to someone with only allergies. Parents have a big job trying to keep exposure to any triggers down to a minimum as children need to run around and explore because that is what kids do. If only the parent is dealing with allergic or non-allergic asthma, you have a better chance of avoiding triggers.

Before Zaditen Orals Drops are Prescribed

Explain other medical conditions or allergies you or your child has before taking Ketotifen drops. Provide a list of other medications that are taken, including vitamin and herbal supplements. If you are pregnant, trying to conceive, or are breast feeding, check with your doctor whether it’s safe to take Zaditen Oral Drops.

Precautions for Zaditen Oral Drops

Do not take or administer Zaditen Oral Drops to stop a sudden asthma attack. Your doctor can recommend a fast-acting inhaler or medicine that can calm symptoms down in less time than taking Ketotifen drops. Keep Zaditen Oral Drops and other meds out of children’s reach and never share them with anyone else. This antihistamine can cause drowsiness and/or dizziness so avoid any activities that could be considered unsafe for you or your child, including driving, operating machinery, and kids climbing trees, swimming, or riding a bike. Use a proper oral syringe for measuring children’s doses to be more accurate than a regular spoon.
