Cetirizine is a second-generation antihistamine used in the treatment of allergies, hay fever, angioedema, and urticaria. It is a major metabolite of hydroxyzine and a racemic selective H1 receptor inverse agonist.
Each film-coated tablet contains:
MECHANISM OF ACTION:
Cetirizine competes with histamine for binding at H1-receptor sites on the effector cell surface, resulting in suppression of histaminic edema, flare, and pruritus. It crosses the blood-brain barrier only slightly, reducing the sedative side-effect common with older antihistamines.
Symptomatic relief of sneezing, lacrimation, itching eyes, and/or oronasopharyngeal itching associated with seasonal allergic rhinitis or other upper respiratory allergies.
Hypersensitivity to any of the ingredients of the medicine.
Dryness of the mouth, nose and throat, drowsiness, urinary retention, blurred vision, nightmares and headaches.
As prescribed by the physician.
Keep in a cool & dry place.
Protect from direct sunlight.
