Dr Reddy’s has announced the launch of its OTC versions of Pataday olopatadine solution in the US. The firm’s entry into the OTC eyecare space follows other OTC launches of rivals to Voltaren and Nicorette earlier this year.
Pataday Once Daily Relief Extra Strength is the same formulation as Novartis' Rx Pazeo. It will be the first OTC eye drop indicated for allergy itch with 24-hour efficacy, available online in September and through retailers in early 2021.
With Pataday Once Daily Relief (0.2% olopatadine) and Twice Daily (0.1%), Alcon adds allergy treatment to its lineup of OTC drops indicated for dry eye and redness. “Obviously, eye allergy will become a much bigger part of the portfolio for us,” says US vision care GM Sean Clark.
