Levocetirizine

Levocetirizine dihydrochloride tablets fight the effects of allergies, in particular allergic rhinitis (hay fever). You can buy both the branded Xyzal and the generic version, Levocetirizine, from our online pharmacy.

The active ingredient, Levocetirizine, eases symptoms by blocking histamine receptors. This prevents the release of other allergy-fighting chemicals and prevents the increase in blood flow to the affected area. In this way, Levocetirizine minimises the immune system’s reaction and frustrating allergy symptoms.

Adults should swallow one tablet a day, whole with plenty of water, before or after food.

You should take a tablet every day that you are exposed to an allergen. Therefore, if you suffer from hay fever, you can take a Levocetirizine tablet every day during hay fever season.

Levocetirizine may cause drowsiness in a small number of people. In general, it is considered a non-drowsy antihistamine.

Allergic rhinitis is a common condition, affecting up to 20 percent of the UK population. It results from an overactive immune system which incorrectly interprets allergens as a threat to the body. Common allergens that aggravate the condition include dust mites, pollen and animal dander. In response to these allergens, the immune system releases histamine to destroy them. This produces symptoms of allergies, due to an increased blood flow to the nasal passages which causes inflammation, congestion and itch.

Anyone can develop allergic rhinitis and there is no cure. Those with the condition are more likely to develop other health issues such as sinusitis, middle ear infections, and nasal polyps. It can also cause sleep difficulties and may disrupt day-to-day activities. Those with allergic rhinitis should try to avoid the allergens that trigger symptoms. Regular nasal cleaning with a salt water solution can ease symptoms by removing allergens lodged in the nasal passages.

Alternative Treatments 

There are some non-medicinal methods to help combat hay fever symptoms. Some of these may include: 

  • Wear wrap-around sunglasses
  • Keep windows closed when it is a day with high pollen count. 
  • Try to have a shower after a day almost straight away. This will remove any trapped pollen grains from your hair and or skin. 

There is an extremely large range of OTC (over the counter) products you can purchase in any pharmacy, these vary from tablets to nasal sprays and also eye drops. You should try these before moving onto a prescription only medicine. 

*Prescription medicines are supplied subject to a medical consultation at the discretion of a doctor.
