General Information on Xyzal Oral Solution
Xyzal Oral Solution is used to provide relief from symptoms associated with chronic idiopathic urticaria (nettle rash) and seasonal and perennial allergic rhinitis. Levocetirizine Dihydrochloride, the main active ingredient in the medication, belongs to a group of drugs known as antihistamines
Levocetirizine Dihydrochloride works by blocking the action of histamine, which is an important substance in the body’s defense mechanism. Histamine is stored in the mast cells of all tissues in the body and is released when the defense mechanism is activated in response to a foreign substance. Xyzal Oral Solution does not prevent the release of histamine but prevents its action by curbing bonding with histamine receptors.
The drug is supplied in one strength- Xyzal Oral Solution 0.5mg/mL. It is a prescription medication, which means you need to consult your doctor before you buy Xyzal Oral Solution online.
