OTC Claritin Eye and Zyrtec Itchy Eye Drops don't contain the active ingredient that you'd expect

OTC Claritin Eye and Zyrtec Itchy Eye Drops don't contain the active ingredient that you'd expect.

Most people will incorrectly assume that Claritin Eye contains loratadine and Zyrtec Itchy Eye Drops contain cetirizine...since these are the active ingredients in other OTC forms of these brands.

But both actually contain ketotifen...the same ingredient that's in OTC Alaway and Zaditor.
