Clarityn Allergy Syrup information
What is Clarityn Syrup used for?
Clarityn Syrup provides up to 24 hours of relief from hay fever and other allergies. Clarityn Syrup can relieve a variety of allergies like those caused by pets and dust, as well as hay fever and skin allergies like rashes, itching, and hives. Each 5ml of syrup contains 5mg of loratadine.
How does Clarityn Syrup work?
Clarityn Allergy Syrup helps to reduce allergy symptoms by blocking the effects of a chemical called histamine, which is produced in the body when you are allergic to something. For people with hay fever, coming into contact with pollen releases histamine which causes inflammation and irritation, especially in the eyes and sinuses. Clarityn blocks the release of histamine and therefore prevents the symptoms from occurring.
When should Clarityn Allergy Syrup be taken?
Clarityn Allergy Syrup relieves symptoms associated with allergic rhinitis (for example, hayfever), such as sneezing, runny or itchy nose and burning or itchy eyes in adults and children over the age of 2 years. The syrup may also be used to help relieve symptoms of urticaria (itching and redness), which is often known as hives or nettle rash. The effect of Clarityn Syrup will last a whole day and should help you to continue your normal daily activities and sleep.
