The FDA has been aggressive about making allergy drugs available without a prescription, so that may change in the near future.

That's what I'm hoping. I wonder when the patent runs out? I'll have to see if I can dig that up.

Here's a link to patent expiration dates (and other info) for the various versions of azelastine. I'll have to read them to find my specific version - the eyedrops - but it doesn't look like any of them are expiring in the immediate future. I read on the FDA site that drug patents are issued for 20 years but extenuating circumstances can cause that period to be reduced to 10 years. I need to do more research, but it's a start.

You're welcome! If I learn anything else I'll post it. I see my immunologist next week so I'll ask if they have a clue.
