What is a generic medication?
Generic medications are significantly discounted copies of brand name medication that have the same active ingredients, intended use, dosage, side effects, effects, and route of administration as the original brand name medication. In other words, generic medications have the same pharmacological effects as their brand-name counterparts. Over half of all prescribed medications are for generic medications.

Opcon-A Drug Information
Opcon-A is used to temporarily relieve eye redness, puffiness, itching, and watering that commonly occur with allergies. Naphazoline is a decongestant. It belongs to a class of drugs known as sympathomimetic amines. It works by temporarily narrowing the blood vessels in the eye. Pheniramine is an antihistamine. It works by blocking certain natural substances (histamines) that cause allergic symptoms. Do not use Opcon-A to treat redness and irritation from wearing contact lenses.
How to Use Opcon-A
To apply eye drops, wash your hands first. To avoid contamination, do not touch the dropper tip or let it touch your eye or any other surface. Remove contact lenses before applying the eye drops. Wait at least 10 minutes after using Opcon-A before inserting contact lenses. If your eyes are red, ask your doctor whether you should wear your contact lenses. Before using, check Opcon-A visually. Do not use if the liquid has changed color or is cloudy. Discard the medication away from children and pets. Use Opcon-A in the affected eye(s) up to 4 times a day as needed or as directed by your doctor. Tilt your head back, look upward, and pull down the lower eyelid to make a pouch. Hold the dropper directly over the eye and place 1 drop into the pouch. Look downward and gently close your eyes for 1 to 2 minutes. Place one finger at the corner of the eye near the nose and apply gentle pressure. This will prevent the medication from draining away from the eye. Try not to blink and do not rub the eye. Repeat these steps if your dose is for more than 1 drop and for the other eye if so directed. Do not rinse the dropper. Replace the dropper cap tightly after each use. If you are using another kind of eye medication (e.g., drops or ointments), wait at least 5 minutes before applying other medications. Use eye drops before eye ointments to allow the drops to enter the eye. Overuse of this type of medication may result in increased eye redness (rebound effect when drug wears off). If this occurs, tell your doctor. Do not use Opcon-A for longer than 3 to 4 days at a time. If your condition persists or worsens after 72 hours, or if you think you may have a serious medical problem, stop using Opcon-A and seek immediate medical attention.
Before using Opcon-A, tell your doctor or pharmacist if you are allergic to naphazoline or to pheniramine; or if you have any other allergies. Opcon-A may contain inactive ingredients (such as preservatives like benzalkonium chloride), which can cause allergic reactions or other problems. Talk to your pharmacist for more details. If you have any of the following health problems,diabetes, glaucoma, heart problems (e.g., heart attack, chest pain), high blood pressure, eye infection/injury, overactive thyroid (hyperthyroidism), difficulty urinating. Opcon-A may cause temporary blurred vision after you apply it. Do not drive, use machinery, or do any activity that requires clear vision until you are sure you can perform such activities safely. Do not use in children younger than 6 years unless directed by a doctor. During pregnancy, Opcon-A should be used only when clearly needed. Discuss the risks and benefits with your doctor. It is not known whether Opcon-A passes into breast milk. Consult your doctor before breast-feeding.
If your doctor has directed you to use Opcon-A on a regular schedule and you miss a dose, use it as soon as you remember. If it is near the time of the next dose, skip the missed dose. Use your next dose at the regular time. Do not double the dose to catch up.
If you are using Opcon-A under your doctor's direction, your doctor or pharmacist may already be aware of possible drug interactions and may be monitoring you for them. Do not start, stop, or change the dosage of any medicine before checking with your doctor or pharmacist first. Before using Opcon-A, tell your doctor or pharmacist of all prescription and nonprescription/herbal products you may use,MAO inhibitors (isocarboxazid, linezolid, methylene blue, moclobemide, phenelzine procarbazine, rasagiline, safinamide, selegiline, tranylcypromine), drugs for high blood pressure (e.g., guanethidine), tricyclic antidepressants (e.g., amitriptyline). This document does not contain all possible interactions. Therefore, before using Opcon-A, tell your doctor or pharmacist of all the products you use. Keep a list of all your medications with you, and share the list with your doctor and pharmacist.
