What should I know before using Emadine?

Before you start using Emadine eye drops, you should talk to your doctor about any previous allergic reactions you have had to emedastine difumarate, the active medication in Emadine. You should also know that Emadine has only been studied in adults, so it is not known how the solution might affect children or older people. Similarly, women who are pregnant or breastfeeding should talk to their doctor about using Emadine, as the potential risks have not been thoroughly studied.
