The active ingredient is loratadine at a strength of 10mg per tablet providing relief from itchy/runny nose, sore/itchy/red/watery eyes, coughs, sneezing and other hay fever an allergy symptoms.
When you suffer from hay fever or your body develops an allergic reaction to other allergens such as house dust mites or pet dander your body triggers a reaction which results in the release of a chemical called histamine. It is this chemical which causes the hallmark symptoms of allergies.
Loratadine and other antihistamines work by blocking the effect of this histamine chemical and consequently providing effective relief from the symptoms of allergies and hay fever.
One a day antihistamines are suitable for most people who suffer from the effects of hay fever or allergies and can be used by the whole family including children over the age of two. They are taken once daily and are non-drowsy making loratadine ideal as an unobtrusive remedy to the pesky hay fever symptoms.
