Alcon Launches Website for PATANASE® Nasal Spray

Nasal allergy sufferers now have a new online resource to gather information on symptoms and fast, effective nasal allergy treatment at http://www.patanase.com. Seasonal allergies affect about 40 to 50 million people in the United States alone, and are one of the most common causes of absenteeism from both work and school. PATANASE® nasal spray relieves the symptoms of allergies fast by going directly to the source. The nasal spray is steroid-free and marketed by Alcon Laboratories, Inc., the maker of the top two prescribed allergy eye drops, PATANOL® and PATADAY ophthalmic solutions. Alcon Laboratories, Inc. is an affiliate of Alcon, Inc. (NYSE:ACL).

"This website is a great resource since more patients are doing online research to learn about their allergies,” said Bobby Lanier, M.D. and clinical professor at the University of North Texas Health Science Center. "It addresses the important need for patients to understand their symptoms and how to get quick, safe relief.”

The new website includes facts about the causes of seasonal allergies as well as an interactive symptoms poll to prepare patients for an educated visit with their doctor. The site features the new nationwide advertising campaign for PATANASE® nasal spray with the commercial viewable on the homepage. Patients can also find complete product prescribing information and instructions for use along with a money-saving mail-in rebate.

PATANASE® nasal spray is intended only for intranasal administration. The most common side effect experienced with the use of PATANASE® nasal spray is bitter taste. Other less common side effects include headache, epistaxis, nasal septal perforations and ulcerations, pharyngolaryngeal pain, post-nasal drip, cough and urinary tract infection.
