Description

Benadryl Allergy Children's 1mg/ml Oral Solution is a meticulously crafted and clinically proven over-the-counter medication, purposefully designed to provide effective relief from the distressing symptoms of common allergies in children. Specially formulated with children in mind, this oral solution stands as a reliable option for parents who seek to alleviate their child's discomfort caused by allergic reactions.

Allergies can significantly impact a child's quality of life, hindering their daily activities and overall well-being. Benadryl Allergy Children's Oral Solution, with its decades-long history of trusted use, serves as a beacon of relief for both parents and children alike.

With every dose, parents can provide their child with a reliable solution to tackle sneezing, runny nose, itchy or watery eyes, and the discomforting itch in the throat or nose. The unique formulation, containing the active ingredient cetirizine hydrochloride, a second-generation antihistamine, is poised to counter the effects of histamine — the key player in allergic reactions. By intervening at the source, the oral solution aids in alleviating the body's allergic responses.

Directions

To ensure the optimal use of Benadryl Allergy Children's 1mg/ml Oral Solution, follow these directions:
Shake the bottle well before use.

Use the provided measuring device to accurately measure the recommended dosage based on your child's age and weight. Consult the product packaging for specific dosage instructions.

The oral solution can be taken with or without food.
If a dose is accidentally missed, administer it as soon as you remember. If it's close to the time for the next scheduled dose, skip the missed one and continue with the regular dosing schedule.

Adhere to the recommended dosage. Do not exceed the stated dose unless advised by a healthcare professional.

Ingredients

Benadryl Allergy Children's 1mg/ml Oral Solution contains the active ingredient cetirizine hydrochloride, which is a second-generation antihistamine.

Cetirizine works by blocking the effects of histamine, a substance that the body releases during an allergic reaction. By countering histamine, this oral solution helps alleviate symptoms such as sneezing, runny nose, itchy or watery eyes, and itching of the throat or nose.

Each 1ml of Benadryl Allergy Children's 1mg/ml Oral Solution contains:

- Cetirizine Hydrochloride 1mg

The solution also contains other inactive ingredients to enhance its taste, stability, and overall quality. For a full list of inactive ingredients, please refer to the product packaging.
