How does the main ingredient work?
Cetirizine Hydrochloride is an antihistamine which works by counteracting the level of histamine the body produces in response to allergies - because the body is allergic to foreign substances like pollen, insect bites, dust mites, and other airborne allergens. By blocking histamine so it can not be released it helps reduce allergic symptoms in the body.
