What is Xyzal?

Xyzal is a brand of antihistamine from the Belgian pharmaceutical company UCB Pharma Ltd. There are two formulations of Xyzal available - tablets and an oral liquid.

If you experience seasonal allergies, or are often exposed to allergens, you can use Xyzal to keep your symptoms at bay.

You can get a private prescription for Xyzal online from Prescription Doctor, following a short medical questionnaire.

What is allergic rhinitis?

Allergic rhinitis is a condition which causes cold-like symptoms after being exposed to an allergen.

It occurs due to the bodies' overreaction to stimuli which would otherwise be harmless.

When an allergen, a substance which causes the reaction, is present in the body, the immune system interprets it as a threat. Cells release a chemical called histamine to fight the intruders.

These histamines are the cause of the symptoms you experience.

The symptoms of allergic rhinitis include:

  • Congested sinuses
  • Coughing
  • Excessive fatigue
  • Headaches
  • Hives
  • Irritated eyes
  • Runny nose
  • Sneezing
  • Sore throat
  • Watery eyes

While these symptoms appear mild, they can have an impact on your concentration, hand-eye coordination, memory, sleep pattern and alertness, resulting in missing days of work or putting yourself at risk of injuries or even car accidents.

Treatment can be sought to bring your symptoms under control.

A common treatment for allergies is antihistamines. These medicines prevent the cells from secreting the chemical, which in turn mitigates the effect of the symptoms.

There are two types of allergic rhinitis; seasonal rhinitis and perennial rhinitis.

Seasonal allergic rhinitis, commonly known as hay fever, afflicts people during spring, summer and early autumn. Symptoms are often triggered by airborne pollen from grass, trees and weeds.

Perennial allergic rhinitis can cause symptoms year-round and is often caused by animal dander (dead skin), feline saliva, dust mites, insects and mould spores.

It's not uncommon for people to experience both seasonal and perennial allergic rhinitis. People who are sensitive to a number of triggers may find that their symptoms become worse during seasons when the pollen count is higher.

How does Xyzal work?

Xyzal contains 5 mg of levocetirizine dihydrochloride - a non-sedating antihistamine.

Levocetirizine dihidrochloride blocks the cells' ability to produce histamines, which cause inflammation in the sinuses and other symptoms of allergies.

Over time, the bodies' response to the allergen lessens, resulting in fewer symptoms.

How to take Xyzal?

Always take Xyzal as prescribed by your doctor.

Do not take more or less than the recommended amount prescribed by your doctor.

To relieve the symptoms of allergies in adults, take one 50 mg tablet daily.

Xyzal can be taken with or without food.

If you forget to take your medicine, take it as soon as you remember.

Do not take more Xyzal to make up for the missed dose.

If you take more Xyzal than you should, contact your doctor straight away.
