Levocet 5 MG Description

Levocet tablet is an antiallergic medication that helps relieve seasonal allergy symptoms such as allergic rhinitis and urticaria. This includes sneezing, runny nose, watery eyes, itching, rashes, hives, and redness. The active ingredient in Levocet tablet is levocetirizine, which works by blocking the action of histamine, a chemical produced during allergic reactions that causes these symptoms.

Allergic rhinitis is an allergic response to allergy-producing substances like pollen, dust or mould. It irritates the nose/throat and causes symptoms like sneezing, wheezing, etc. Allergic rhinitis is a common condition that affects an individual’s quality of life and, if left untreated, may contribute to other conditions like asthma, otitis media and sinusitis.

Take this medicine in the exact dose and duration recommended by your doctor. Do not take more than the prescribed dose. Your doctor may recommend taking Levocet tablet at bedtime, as it may cause sleepiness. The medications Teczine 5mg tablet, Levosiz 5mg tablet, Xyzal 5mg tablet, Okacet L tablet, and Levocetrizen 5mg tablet also include levocetirizine.

If you are allergic to any of the components of this medicine, you should not take it. Levocet tablet is not recommended for children under the age of 6. It is important to exercise caution when driving after taking this medicine, as it may cause drowsiness and fatigue. Before starting to take this medicine, please inform your doctor of your plans to become pregnant, if you are pregnant, or if you are breastfeeding. Additionally, make sure to provide your complete medical history to the doctor and inform them of all other medicines and supplements you are taking.
