What is a Generic Drug?

A generic drug is a copy of the brand-name drug with the same dosage, safety, strength, quality, consumption method, performance, and intended use. Before generics become available on the market, the generic company must prove it has the same active ingredients as the brand-name drug and works in the same way and in the same amount of time in the body.

The only differences between generics and their brand-name counterparts is that generics are less expensive and may look slightly different (eg. different shape or color), as trademarks laws prevent a generic from looking exactly like the brand-name drug.

Generics are less expensive because generic manufacturers don't have to invest large sums of money to develop a drug. When the brand-name patent expires, generic companies can manufacture a copy of the brand-name and sell it at a substantial discount.


Alomide Eye Drops, containing the active ingredient Lodoxamide, are used to relieve eye discomfort caused by allergies. Lodoxamide works by targeting mast cells, blocking them from releasing inflammatory substances that trigger allergic responses. This medication falls into the category of mast cell stabilizers, providing relief for symptoms such as redness, itching, and watering of the eyes. Alomide is typically prescribed for conditions like vernal conjunctivitis or keratitis.


When using Alomide Eye Drops, carefully tilt your head back and gently pull down the lower eyelid to create a small pocket. With the bottle inverted, bring it close to the eye without touching it, and squeeze gently to release a single drop into the pocket. It’s important not to touch the eye or eyelid with the bottle tip to avoid contamination.

The standard dosage typically involves one drop in each affected eye, four times a day at regular intervals, unless a healthcare provider gives different instructions. Always wash your hands before application to maintain cleanliness, and if you wear contacts, remove them before using the drops and wait at least 15 minutes before putting them back in.


The main ingredient in Alomide Eye Drops is Lodoxamide Tromethamine. The medication may also contain inactive ingredients, such as mannitol, hydroxypropyl methylcellulose 2910, sodium citrate, and citric acid.


Individuals who have a known hypersensitivity or allergic reaction to Lodoxamide or any other component in the formulation should avoid taking the medication.


  • Consult a healthcare provider about the following before using Alomide:
    • Any allergies you may have
    • Any medications you are currently taking
    • If you are pregnant or breastfeeding
    • Any other medical conditions you have
  • Remember, Alomide Eye Drops are strictly for use in your eyes. They should never be injected or swallowed.
  • If you wear soft contact lenses, you'll need to remove them while using these eye drops. The drops contain a substance that can interact with your lenses.
  • When applying the drops, take care not to let the dropper touch your eye or any other surface. This helps keep the solution clean and safe.
  • It's common to feel a bit of burning or stinging right after using the drops. If this sensation lasts longer than a short period or is particularly bothersome, contact your doctor.
  • Research has thoroughly checked Alomide for any long-term health risks, like cancer or fertility issues, and found none at the recommended doses. High doses in lab settings showed some cellular changes, but these are much higher than doses for human use.
  • Alomide is considered safe for use during pregnancy (Category B), meaning animal studies haven't shown any harm to fetuses even at high doses. Still, there aren't definitive studies in pregnant women, so use it only if your doctor thinks it's necessary.
  • It's unknown if Alomide passes into breast milk. To be safe, if you're nursing, talk to your healthcare provider before using these eye drops.
  • The safety of Alomide for kids under 2 years old hasn't been confirmed, so it's best not to use it for infants and toddlers.
  • Research shows that Alomide works equally well and is just as safe for older adults as it is for younger patients, with no significant differences in effectiveness or safety.

Side Effects

Alomide Eye Drops are mostly known to cause a temporary burning or stinging sensation right after they're put in the eye, which about 15% of people might feel. Other side effects that are less common but still possible include itchy eyes, blurry vision, dry eyes, watery eyes, redness, feeling like there's something in your eye, and deposits in the eyes seen in 1 to 5% of users.

Although it's rare, some people might experience more serious issues with their eyes such as corneal erosion (a scratch on the front part of the eye), irritation or scales on the eyelids, eye pain, swelling, a warm feeling in the eye, tired eyes, and inflammation. Very few might also have headaches, feel dizzy, sleepy, nauseous, or have stomach discomfort, sneezing, a dry nose, and skin rashes. If you notice any of these more serious or persistent side effects, it's important to talk to your doctor or eye care professional.
