Some of the most common side effects of epinastine ophthalmic solution include runny or stuffy nose, eye redness, and sore throat.

If side effects do occur, in most cases, they are minor and either require no treatment or can easily be treated by you or your healthcare provider.

Possible Side Effects of Epinastine Ophthalmic Solution
