FAQ

What is the ingredient of Rapitil?

Rapitil eye drops contain the active ingredient nedocromil sodium, which is a medicine used to relieve the symptoms of allergies.

 

How does Rapitil work?

Mast cells are an important part of the immune system. They become sensitised when they are exposed to foreign particles or allergens, for example pollen, pet fur or dust mites. When this happens, the mast cells release substances that include histamine, and these cause inflammation as part of the body'’s immune response to fight the foreign substance. Inflammation of the eye causes the typical symptoms of an eye allergy - redness, itching and a watery discharge.
By stabilising the mast cells, nedocromil sodium is thought to prevent the substances that cause the inflammation, eg histamine, from being released when the cells encounter an allergen. This prevents the allergic response and relieves the symptoms of the allergy.



How do I use Rapitil?

For eye allergies such as hay fever, one drop should be put into each eye twice a day. This can be increased to four times a day if necessary; follow the instructions given by your doctor.

For vernal kerato conjunctivitis, one drop should be put into each eye four times a day.

You should continue to use the drops regularly for as long as is needed to keep your symptoms under control. Follow the instructions given by your doctor. For hay fever you can use these drops daily throughout the pollen season, but not for more than 12 weeks.



What are the side effects of Rapitil?

Some potential side effects of using Rapitil may include; burning, stinging or soreness after putting the drops into the eyes.
