Ask your doctor about Xyzal Oral Solution if you experience itchy watery eyes, runny nose, and sneezing due to year-round or seasonal allergies. Children can find it especially difficult to deal with allergy symptoms so your pediatrician may recommend Xyzal Oral Solution for children as young as six months with dosing amounts as prescribed by your doctor or pediatrician according to age. Xyzal Oral Solution is easy for children to take from a dosing syringe or spoon and it will not cause a sedative effect, although the child may become a little sleepy which could simply be because their symptoms are reduced.
Xyzal Oral Solution contains Levocetirizine Dihydrochloride which works to block histamine receptors in your body, H1 in particular. This will not prevent histamine from being released by mast cells, but it will stop it from binding to its receptors. By doing this, other allergy chemicals are stopped from being released and the blood supply to the area is not increased so inflammation is averted.
Besides allergies, Xyzal Oral Solution is also prescribed to treat chronic idiopathic urticaria. Chronic means long-lasting, idiopathic refers to a disease or condition that occurs for unknown reasons, and urticaria is Latin for nettle because the symptoms of urticaria are similar to a nettle rash or hives. The rash appears as red, itchy, raised bumps on your skin. Unless you are mindful of the foods you eat, drugs you use, lotions or soaps you apply, or things in your own environment, you may never know what is causing the rash and it can disappear as fast as it came on.
Before taking Xyzal Oral Solution, tell your doctor if you are pregnant, may become pregnant, or are breast feeding in case it may not be safe for your unborn or nursing baby. Explain other medical conditions and known allergies to your doctor and list any OTC or Rx medications you take, including herbal remedies and dietary or vitamin supplements so it can be determined if Xyzal Oral Solution is right for you.
Until you know how your body will react to Xyzal Oral Solution, you should avoid driving, operating machinery, or performing any task that is unsafe if your thinking or reactions are impaired. Do not administer Xyzal Oral Solution to any child who is under six months of age. Use a proper measuring device when dosing Xyzal Oral Solution and take the guess work out of using a table spoon, especially when administering this medicine to children. If there is no improvement in your symptoms or they become worse, call your doctor.
