Hello Everyone-

My son was diagnosed about 10 months ago and this is the first time his allergies have really flared up since his diagnosis. In particular, his eyes are always very hard-hit by hay fever. I am planning on purchasing an OTC allergy relief eye drop, and there are several types to choose from. Some use ketotifin fumarate (Zaditor, Alaway), some use naphazoline hydrochloride & pheniramine maleate (Naphcon A), and some use cromolin sodium (Opticrom). Searching for interaction information with Novolog & Lantus isn't resulting in much for me, does anyone out there know which drops are best for diabetic kids? Due to insurance issues, I cannot get a prescription drop immediately, so it needs to be OTC for now. Any thoughts?

Thanks!

April

There are no Special eye or ear drops for Children with Diabetes unless he has something out of the ordinary going on. I'm sorry we cannot tell you what drops to use. Ruby is correct in asking the Pharmacist or phone your Child's Doctor's office and ask.
