Texa tablets 10mg 30's
Cetirizine is a histamine H1 receptor antagonist which does not possess any significant anticholinergic or antiserotonin effects as shown in experimental and clinical pharmacology, which is intended for use as an anti-allergic agent. The anti-allergic activity of cetirizine is predominantly achieved by its ability to reduce the release of certain mediators (mainly histamine), combined with a selective H1 receptor-blocking action. Eosinophil recruitment induced by antigen-antibody reaction, is also reduced by cetirizine.
SIDE-EFFECTS AND SPECIAL PRECAUTIONS: Texa lacks significant sedative effects; however, a small number of patients may experience sedation. It is therefore recommended that individual responses be determined before recipients drive vehicles or perform other complicated tasks. The simultaneous intake of alcohol or other central nervous system depressants may compound this effect. Mild and transient subjective sideeffects such as headache, dizziness, drowsiness, agitation, dry mouth, increased appetite, nervousness and gastro-intestinal discomfort, have occasionally been reported. Hypersensitivity reactions, including skin reactions and angio-oedema, may develop in some individuals. Antihistamines may suppress the cutaneous histamine response to allergen extracts and should be stopped several days before skin testing.
