Xyzal Tablets for Seasonal Allergies
Available in the form of a liquid or a tablet, Xyzal® (levocetirizine dihydrochloride) is an antihistamine licensed to treat the following conditions:
- Allergies, including seasonal allergies and allergies that occur all year long (known as perennial allergies)
- Chronic hives due to unknown causes (known medically as chronic idiopathic urticaria).
The medication works by blocking the effects of histamine in the body, which can alleviate symptoms such as sneezing, runny nose, and nasal itching. It is usually taken once a day in the evening, with or without food.
