In objective tests of psychomotor function the incidence of sedation with cetirizine was similar to that of placebo. There have been occasional reports of mild and transient side effects such as headache, dizziness, drowsiness, agitation, dry mouth, and gastrointestinal discomfort. If affected the dose may be taken as 5 mg in the morning and 5 mg in the evening.
Convulsions have very rarely been reported.
Do not exceed the stated dose. If symptoms persist consult your doctor.
As with other drugs, the use of cetirizine in pregnancy should be avoided.
Cetirizine is contraindicated in lactating women since it is excreted in breast milk.
Cetirizine hydrochloride: 10 mg per tablet. Cetirizine dihydrochloride Ph.Eur is also known as cetirizine hydrochloride as per the INNM/BANM.
Cetirizine is a potent antihistamine with a low potential for drowsiness at normal therapeutic doses which has additional anti-allergic properties. It is a selective H1 antagonist with negligible effects on other receptors and so is virtually free from anti-cholinergic and anti-serotonin effects. Cetirizine inhibits the histamine-mediated early phase of the allergic reaction and also reduces the migration of certain inflammatory cells and the release of certain mediators associated with the late allergic response.
Tablet core: Microcrystalline cellulose, Lactose, Colloidal anhydrous silica, Magnesium stearate. Film coating: Opadry Y-1-7000, - Hydroxypropylmethylcellulose (E464), - Titanium dioxide (E171), - Polyethlene glycol.
The dose needs to be reduced in elderly patients.
