Why is Xyzal prescribed?
Levocetirizine (Xyzal) is prescribed for the treatment of common allergies such as sneezing, colds, runny and stuffy nose, hives, hay fever, hives and urticaria that causes swelling and itching.
What does it do?
Levocetirizine, classified as a second generation antihistamine, primarily works by blocking the action of histamine in the peripherals, which is responsible for allergic reaction symptoms; thus, reducing its effects.
How should I take it?
Xyzal is available as 5mg tablet that is intended for oral administration as a whole, not to be crushed or chewed, and should be taken with or without food as directed by the doctor.
The dosage strength depends on every patient’s condition and the doctor’s prescription. It is strictly advised that you do not self-medicate and only take this drug after consulting with your doctor or pharmacist to determine the best dosage and dosing schedule for the treatment of your condition.
What if I missed a dose?
Taking the dose properly at the scheduled time is needed to attain the desired effect of the drug. If you miss a dose, take it as soon as you remember. However, if it is near the time of the next dose, skip the missed dose and catch the next dose at the regular time. Do not take two doses just to make up for your missed dose.
What are the special precautions before taking Xyzal?
Before taking Levocetirizine, tell your doctor or pharmacist if you have any allergies to food or to the drug itself as it may contain several inactive ingredients, which can cause allergic reactions or problems.
