What is Cetirizine/Zirtek Liquid?

Cetirizine Hydrochloride 5 mg/5 ml Oral Solution, also known as Zirtek 1mg/1ml Oral Solution, belongs to a group of medicines called antihistamines. It works by counteracting the
effects of histamine which is produced naturally by your body’s defence system, but may be over-produced in allergic reactions.
Cetirizine Hydrochloride is used to relieve the symptoms of hayfever (seasonal rhinitis) in adults and children over the age of 2 years, which include:
• sneezing
• irritated, runny or blocked nose
• itchy, red and watering eyes


It is used to relieve the symptoms of other allergies in adults and older children (over the age of 6 years), including:
• runny and itchy nose (non-seasonal rhinitis)
• pet or house mite allergies
• skin allergies such as rash, itching and urticaria (hives)

How does it work?

Cetirizine works selectively on peripheral histamine-1 (H-1) receptors which are located outside of the brain and spinal cord. Since it acts on peripheral histamine receptors, cetirizine is much less likely to cause drowsiness compared with some older antihistamines.
Histamine is a chemical that is released due to an allergen, making it responsible for many of the symptoms of an allergic reaction, such as swelling, sneezing, and itching. Cetirizine binds to histamine receptors and prevents histamine's affects on the receptors and reduces allergy symptoms.

What are the benefits of taking it?

Helps to reduce hayfever related symptoms. Doesn't cause tiredness.

How do I use it and its dosage?

Always take this medicine exactly as your doctor has told you. You should check with your doctor or pharmacist if you are not sure. Cetirizine Hydrochloride is to be
taken only by mouth, and is not to be taken by children aged under 2 years. The measuring spoon provided is double-ended. The larger spoon holds 5 ml of your
medicine, and the smaller spoon holds 2.5 ml. Each 5 ml spoonful of solution contains 5 mg cetirizine hydrochloride.

Children aged 2 to 5 years: Either one 5ml spoonful once daily or one 2.5ml spoonful twice daily (to a maximum of 5mg daily). Children aged 6 to 11 years: Either two 5ml spoonfuls once a day, or one 5ml spoonful twice a day (a maximum of 10mg daily). Adults (12+): Two 5ml spoonfuls once daily (to a maximum of 10mg daily)
