Each film coated tablet contains:
Levocetirizine Dihydrochloride I.P. 5 mg
Levocetirizine is a third-generation non-sedative antihistamine, developed from the second-generation antihistamine cetirizine. Chemically, Levocetirizine is the active enantiomer of Cetirizine. It is the R-enantiomer of the cetirizine racemate.
MECHANISM OF ACTION:
Levocetirizine works by blocking histamine receptors. It does not prevent the actual release of histamine from mast cells, but prevents it binding to its receptors. This in turn prevents the release of other allergy chemicals and increased blood supply to the area, and provides relief.
