Overview

Allacan products are used to treat hayfever and other allergies. They work in much the same way as other antihistamines, with the advantage of being non-drowsy. Some antihistamines can cause drowsiness, so aren’t really suitable for use during the day.

Hayfever is a sensitivity to pollen, so is most severe in the Spring and Summer, when the pollen count is highest. It can cause:

  • Sneezing and coughing.
  • Runny or blocked nose.
  • Itchy, red or watery eyes.
  • Itchy throat, mouth, nose and ears.
  • Loss of smell.
  • Headache.
  • Earache.

Reactions like this are caused when the body mistakes a harmless substance (like pollen) for something harmful. The body then releases histamines to get rid of the substance.

Using Allacan products

Allacan products contain cetirizine. It can be taken by both adults and children.

Children experiencing hay fever symptoms should take half a 10mg tablet. Adults should take one tablet a day.

When the pollen count is high, you may want to take a daily tablet, whether you have symptoms or not.
