I was recently at my doctors and had asked him to prescribe me one of these for MCAD. However, he said he was only able to get them in eye drops. I checked with the pharmacy and they said the same thing. I am in the US, are you able to get this in a capsule or is it only eye drops? I’m confused. Thanks in advance, Ashton
I found that compounding pharmacies can get/make Ketotifen capsules in the US. I live in Oregon and get them locally. And, it is much cheaper than the name brand RX being sold in Canada or England. I got 90 2mg capsules for $67!
The oral version of Cromolyn is called Gastrocrom and is available in the US by that name. It is very expensive though! And, a pain to take (in my opinion, on an empty stomach 4 times a day!).
Hope this helps you!
I use a Cromolyn Sodium oral concentrate solution produced by Pack Pharmaceuticals. One box contains 96 – five mL unit dose ampules.
