What is Rapitil 2%?

Rapitil 2% eye drops are used to treat mild allergic reactions and to ease the symptoms of seasonal allergies such as hayfever.

The eyes can be affected by allergic conjunctivitis, which is inflammation of certain parts of the eyes. Symptoms of this can include red, watery, itchy eyes and puffy eyelids. Rapitil eye drops help to ease this.

Use within 4 weeks of opening

How does Rapitil work?

The active ingredient in Rapitil eye drops is nedocromil sodium. This works to stop the eyes producing certain substances that cause eye inflammation in response to the presence of an allergen.  

Don’t use Rapitil eye drops if:

  • You’re allergic to nedocromil sodium or any other ingredient in this medicine
  • You wear soft contact lenses
  • You’re pregnant or breastfeeding

Rapitil Eye Drops contain benzalkonium chloride, which can cause eye irritation and also change the colour of contact lenses.

How do you take Rapitil?

Always take Rapitil nedocromil eye drops as directed by your doctor or pharmacist.

To treat seasonal allergic conjunctivitis, caused by hayfever for example, put one drop in each eye twice a day. You can increase this to four times a day if necessary, but don’t use Rapitil for more than 12 weeks.

Follow the instructions in the patient information leaflet when putting the eye drops in. 

How effective is Rapitil?

Rapitil nedocromil sodium eye drops are a clinically proven treatment for allergic conjunctivitis.  

Use this medication for as long as your doctor recommends. If you stop using it too early, your symptoms may come back.

  1. Blurred vision
