Having allergies can be frustrating at times, whether they’re making your eyes itch, your nose run, or a combination of the two. So, it’s a relief to know that antihistamines can help relieve your symptoms.
Cetirizine HCl 5 mg (in each 5 mL)
When you have an allergic reaction, your immune system produces chemicals known as histamines to fight the allergen, and these are what cause your symptoms. Cetirizine helps relieve these symptoms by blocking the effects of histamines, so your symptoms don’t develop.
This kids’ allergy medicine temporarily relieves the following symptoms due to hay fever or other upper respiratory allergies for a full 24 hours:
• runny nose
• itchy, watery eyes
• itching of the nose or throat
Suitable for both children & toddlers, this antihistamine liquid medicine is made with 5mg of Cetirizine HCI (in each 5 mL) and features a dye- and sugar-free formula, available in kid-friendly Grape and Bubble Gum flavors. For relief on-the-go, try Children’s ZYRTEC® Dissolve Tabs for indoor and outdoor seasonal allergies.
Always follow the instructions that come with Children’s ZYRTEC®. When taking Children’s ZYRTEC® Allergy Syrup, be sure to use the dosing cup that comes in the package.
