What is Chlorphenamine/Piriton?

Chlorphenamine is an antihistamine with the active ingredient 'chlorphenamine maleate', which is helpful in treating allergic reactions, as well as skin rashes that give irritation.

How does it work?

Chlorphenamine works by blocking a natural substance, known as histamine, that your body creates during an allergic reaction. By blocking another natural substance made by your body called acetylcholine, it helps dry up some body fluids and relieves symptoms such as a runny nose.

What are the benefits of taking it?

Helps to reduce hayfever related symptoms and fluid build-up in the body.

How do I use it and its dosage?
