More Information

 Allacan tablets, contain the active ingredient Cetirizine hydrochloride, which belongs to the antihistamine group of medicines. This compound functions by blocking the effects of histamine, a naturally occurring substance in the body that plays a key role in allergic reactions. By inhibiting histamine activity, allacan tablets effectively alleviate symptoms associated with allergies. They are primarily utilised to treat conditions such as hay fever (seasonal allergic rhinitis), which encompasses symptoms like sneezing, nasal congestion, and itchy or watery eyes triggered by allergens like pollen.

If you are struggling with the symptoms of hayfever, visit our  Allergy Products & Treatments homepage for a variety of alternatives, including Avamys Nasal Spray

Before taking allacan tablets, ensure you do not have severe kidney disease requiring dialysis or any allergy to cetirizine hydrochloride, its ingredients as listed in section 6 of the Patient Information Leaflet, hydroxyzine, or piperazine derivatives (related active substances). It’s essential to discuss any concerns with your doctor or pharmacist before starting allacan tablets if you have renal insufficiency, urinary difficulties due to spinal cord, prostate, or bladder issues, or if you’re epileptic or prone to seizures. Your doctor can provide guidance, including adjusting the dosage if necessary, to ensure your safety and optimal treatment outcomes.

Always adhere to the instructions provided in the Patient Information Leaflet or as directed by your healthcare professional. If unsure, consult your doctor or pharmacist. Tablets should be swallowed with a glass of liquid and can be divided into equal doses if needed. Adults and children aged 12 years and over typically take 10 mg once daily as one tablet. If drowsiness or dizziness occurs, taking half a tablet twice a day might be preferable. For children aged 6 to 12, the recommended dose is 5 mg twice daily as half a tablet. It’s important to note that this medicine is not recommended for children under 6 years old. 

If you find tablets are not your preference, visit our  Allergy Products & Treatments homepage where we have plenty of alternatives such as Optrex Double Action For Itchy & Watery Eyes.

As with all medications, this medicine can potentially induce side effects, although not everyone experiences them. It’s crucial to be vigilant for rare or very rare side effects, and if noticed, discontinue the tablets and promptly consult your doctor. These severe reactions may include allergic responses and angioedema, characterised by swelling of the face or throat, which can occur either shortly after commencing the medication or later on. Common side effects, affecting up to 1 in 10 individuals, may involve somnolence (sleepiness), headache, dizziness, sore throat, runny or stuffy nose (especially in children), diarrhea, nausea, dry mouth, and fatigue. Uncommon side effects, impacting up to 1 in 100 people, may encompass agitation, abnormal skin sensations, abdominal pain, itching, rash, extreme fatigue, and malaise. Rare occurrences, affecting up to 1 in 1,000 people, might include severe allergic reactions, depression, hallucination, aggression, confusion, insomnia, convulsions, and tachycardia (rapid heartbeat), as well as abnormal liver function. Vigilance and prompt medical attention are essential if any of these symptoms manifest. For full details refer to the Patient Information Leaflet.
