Xyzal is an antihistamine tablet used to treat the symptoms of allergic rhinitis and urticaria (hives). Each tablet contains 5mg of the antihistamine levocetirizine dihydrochloride, which eases symptoms, such as sneezing, congestion, runny nose, and inflamed eyes.
Approximately 20% of people in The UK are affected by allergic rhinitis. The condition is brought on by a hypersensitive immune system - when certain allergens enter the nose, the immune system mistakenly targets them as if they were a viral or bacterial infection. This immune response triggers the production of extra mucus, which leads to congestion and sneezing. It still isn't fully understood why certain people develop these allergies, though genetics are thought to play a part, as sometimes allergies run in families. In many cases, allergies only occur during the high pollen season (seasonal rhinitis or hay fever). However, for others, who's triggers include pet hair or dust mites, the symptoms can occur throughout the year.
One of the principal chemicals that the body releases in reaction to an allergen is histamine. This causes inflammation of the nasal passages. Xyzal tablets inhibit the body's production of histamine, providing relief from both allergic rhinitis and urticaria.
Xyzal is safe for both adults and children. Children over the age of 2 can use Xyzal for allergic rhinitis; children who are over six months old can use Xyzal to treat hives.
Xyzal can be taken alongside a nasal spray and eye drops for allergy symptoms.
There are some non-medicinal methods to help combat hay fever symptoms. Some of these may include:
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.
Xyzal tablets should be taken once per day, at a similar time each day. Swallow the tablet whole with a sip of water, either before or after a meal.
If your symptoms do not improve, contact your GP or pharmacist.
Not everyone will experience side effects when they take Xyzal. However, if you do, they can include:
