Question: Thank you, Dr. Bhavsar, for following up and asking about our health status. My daughter started on Patanol eye drops, and I was wondering how long it will be before we see an "effect"? So far, her eyes remain red. Also, if this doesn't work, what would you recommend?

Brief Answer:
Better to consult ophalmologist.

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for your question on Healthcare Magic.
I can understand your concern.
Patanol is having antihistamine drug (olopatadine).
It's effect usually seen in 2-3 days of use.
So in my opinion, you should definitely consult ophalmologist for your daughter 's red eyes and find out the cause.
Hope I have solved your query. I will be happy to help you further. Wishing good health to your daughter. Thanks.
