Pharmacokinetics

tsetirizin-geksal-600x600 Regardless of the dosage form used, Cetirizine Hexal is rapidly absorbed in the gastrointestinal tract. At the same time, the absorption rate practically does not affect food intake - therefore, the intake of cetirizine does not need to be coordinated with the meal.

Within an hour after the drug enters the body, its concentration in the blood reaches its maximum. A pronounced therapeutic effect occurs after a few hours and continues throughout the day.

The active active ingredient cetirizine dihydrochloride enters the blood into the liver, where it breaks down into biologically neutral substances. Neither the liver nor other organs of the drug does not accumulate.

The drug is derived mainly by the kidneys in the urine.

Drug interaction

It is not recommended to use cetirizine in combination with sedatives and the antibiotic Gentomicin.

Theophylline reduces the efficacy of cetirizine - therefore, the friendly administration of these two drugs is undesirable.

I experienced the fact that pediatricians with an enviable constancy tend to prescribe a sick child the most expensive drugs. For children, of course, nothing is a pity, but when the child is actually sick year-round, you begin to think about how to reduce the cost of the treatment process. Since I have an allergic child, allergy medications in our first-aid kit must be constantly available. All of them are quite expensive, although very effective. A familiar pharmacy in a pharmacy advised me a cheaper antiallergic drug for my little allergic person - a drop of Cetirizine Hexal. I studied the instructions and came to the conclusion that you can try. Imagine my surprise that this drug is no worse than its much more expensive and advertised companions! Since then, only cetirizine from allergies and saved. Katerina, Moscow, Russia

I have a very uncomfortable form of allergy - dust allergy. This means that almost around the clock I suffer from constant tearing and a plentiful cold, since dust is constantly present in our lives. Through trial and error, not without the participation of a district therapist, I found the most ideal way to deal with my illness - Cetirizine Hexal tablets. They are not as expensive as most antihistamines, but they help me a lot. Plus, no side effects in the form of drowsiness and lethargy. Valentina, Samara, Russia

For me, Cetirizine Hexal in drops is an emergency aid for an allergic reaction in a child. When my son first appeared in the urticaria after the introduction of carrots in the feed, and the big red spots literally began to crawl all over his body before my eyes, I rushed to the pharmacy in a panic. There they advised me to drop Cetirizine Hexal and explain how to take them. A quarter of an hour after the intake of these miraculous drops, the onset of allergy stopped. The next day, we turned to a pediatrician - she approved the administration of cetirizine and said that it was indeed a very effective drug for allergies in children. Nadezhda, Krasnodar, Russia
