Ekon Xl 5 MG Description

Ekon Xl Tablet is an antiallergic medicine. It is used in allergic conditions such as common cold, allergic rhinitis (running nose), urticaria, insect bite and hives. Ekon Xl contains levocetirizine

as its active medicine. Allergic symptoms appear due to the production of a chemical in the body, namely histamine. Ekon Xl Tablet works by blocking the actions of histamine. Do not use it if you are allergic to levocetirizine. Avoid driving and handling any machinery, as this medicine makes you less alert.
