Piriton is a medication used to relieve the symptoms of an allergic reaction including those stemming from hay fever, pet allergies, and dust mite allergies. It can relieve allergic symptoms such as itchy eyes, running nose, sneezing, and rashes. The active ingredient in Piriton is chlorphenamine, and it comes in 4mg tablets.
Piriton can also be used to combat the effects of more serious reactions including angioneurotic oedema (swelling of the tongue, throat, lips, and eyes), as well as being used to treat the itch associated with chicken pox.
You can buy Piriton online from Prescription Doctor's trusted UK pharmacy. Our pharmacy can dispatch your treatment the same day via a fast next-day delivery. All orders are packaged in discreet packaging to ensure your confidentiality.
Piriton prevents histamine – produced in response to a foreign body – from creating an allergic reaction as it blocks the histamine receptors.
It usually works within 30 to 60 minutes of being taken. If you plan on going out somewhere, you should consider taking Piriton between 30 minutes to an hour before you are due to set out.
Piriton contains chlorphenamine maleate which is a sedating antihistamine. Therefore, it can make you feel drowsy after it is taken. Due to its effects, you should avoid driving vehicles or operating machinery after taking it.
For adults and children over 12, one tablet should be taken every 4 to 6 hours. No more than 6 tablets should be taken in 24 hours. The elderly should take no more than 3 tablets in 24 hours.
Piriton can be taken to relieve the symptoms of an allergic reaction to pollen, pets, dusts and other allergens. It can also be taken in anticipation of suffering from an allergic reaction.
If you have hay fever, you can take Piriton before leaving the house. Check the pollen count in the morning before you go out and avoid places where the pollen count will be high, such as public parks. Understanding how to manage your hay fever symptoms aside from taking Piriton can help you reduce your risk of symptoms.
For more information on what Piriton can be used for, as well as how to take it under different circumstances, we recommend you to read the leaflet supplied with the medicine.
If you are unsure about how to take Piriton, you should consult the leaflet supplied with the medicine. If you are unsure about anything displayed in the leaflet, speak to a pharmacist.
Before you take any medication, whether you bought it online or over-the-counter, it's important to read the patient information leaflet supplied with it.
Piriton is suitable for most people, although there are some groups of people who should avoid it. These include:
For some, Piriton can be taken only after obtaining medical advice. The people who should be asking for this advice include:
If you are currently taking medication – including herbal medications – you should check with your doctor or pharmacist before taking Piriton.
Piriton should not be used in combination with any other type of antihistamine. You can use it with other allergy medications that do not include antihistamines. You can also use Piriton with paracetamol or ibuprofen (over-the-counter painkillers). You should not combine it with prescription painkillers including co-dydramol and co-codamol.
All medicines carry the risk of side effects, though not everybody gets them. It's important to understand the risks associated with the medicine you are taking and to remain vigilant of any side effects you may experience.
Side effects may include:
This is not an exhaustive list of side effects. Further information regarding the safety of this medication can be found within the patient information leaflet.
If you experience any side effects, whether they are listed above or in the patient information leaflet, inform your doctor or a pharmacist as soon as possible for advice.
If you are pregnant, think you might be pregnant, plan on starting a family or breastfeeding, you should speak to your doctor before taking Piriton.
Always seek your doctor's advice before buying Piriton online from Prescription Doctor.
Please inform our doctor of all medications you are currently taking, whether they were bought over-the-counter or prescribed by your doctor, including health supplements.
Do not take Piriton past the expiry date printed on the packaging. The date refers to the last day of the indicated month.
Never throw away medicine via household or water waste. Take any unwanted or expired medication to your local pharmacy and ask them to dispose of it safely on your behalf.
Always store medicine out of sight and reach from children and pets.
Never share your medicine with anybody else, even if they are experiencing the same symptoms as you.
If you forget to take a dose of Piriton, take it as soon as you remember if you need to. Your next dose will need to be at least four hours after your missed dose. Never take a double dose.
Piriton usually starts working within 30 minutes of taking it. If you need to go out somewhere, you should take it 30 minutes before you plan on heading out.
If you have taken more than the prescribed dose of Piriton, phone the NHS 111 or your GP as soon as you can for advice.
Since Piriton is a sedating antihistamine, it is not advisable to drink alcohol while taking it, as this can make the drowsiness worse.
Piriton has a sedative effect and may cause you to feel drowsy after taking it.
As with any sedative, you should not drive or operate machinery when taking Piriton.
The feeling of lethargy, after taking Piriton, usually wears off within 6 hours. During this time, you should refrain from driving or operating machinery.
You should take 1 tablet every 4 to 6 hours. You must not exceed taking 6 tablets in any 24-hour period.
You can buy Piriton online from Prescription Doctor's UK based pharmacy. We offer a discreet, next-day delivery service on orders approved before 3pm.
