Before Buying Cetirizine HCL

Cetirizine HCL is a second generation antihistamine. It is available over-the-counter and as a brand name. It is used for:

  • Treating seasonal and perennial allergic rhinitis.
  •  Treating chronic urticaria that isn’t due to chronic idiopathic urticarial.
  • Treating allergic skin rashes such as hives or urticaria.

You can also use Cetirizine HCL in treating conjunctivitis, rhinorrhea and tightening of the airways. It prevents the action of histamine, a natural substance produced by the body when it reacts with allergens. This allergic substance acts on the histamine receptor causing allergic reactions.  In hay fever, histamine causes inflammation of the eyes, nose and airways which results in a runny, watery and itchy nose. Cetirizine HCL blocks the production of histamine. It usually works within half an hour after intake.

Why Buy Cetirizine HCL?

Cetirizine HCL, as a second-generation antihistamine produces less drowsiness. It is non-sedating than other antihistamine drugs. It last longer too so you only have to take them once a day. You can buy Cetirizine HCL without a prescription from your doctor and in a smaller pack.  The generic Cetirizine HCL cost less than the branded ones like Benadryl and Zirtek.
