Histamine N blocker1-receptors. Does not block cholinergic and serotonin receptors. It has an anti-allergic effect, when applied in therapeutic doses does not penetrate the BBB, therefore does not cause any significant sedative effect. Cetirizine affects both the early and late stages of an allergic reaction.
Suction and distribution
After oral administration cetirizine is well absorbed from the gastrointestinal tract. Reception simultaneously with food practically does not affect absorption. Cmax Cetirizine in the blood is reached 1 hour after administration and is 0.3 μg / ml. Cetirizine is largely bound to plasma proteins.
Metabolism and excretion
It is slightly metabolized in the liver. T1/2 is about 10 hours, in the elderly - about 12 hours, in children - 5-6 hours. Most cetirizine is excreted in the urine unchanged.
Pharmacokinetics in special clinical situations
T1/2 in elderly people it is about 12 hours, in children - 5-6 hours.
Cetrine is used in adults and children over the age of 6 years to alleviate the symptoms of:
- seasonal and chronic allergic rhinitis;
- allergic conjunctivitis;
- itching of various etiologies;
- urticaria (including chronic idiopathic);
- angioedema (angioedema).
1 tablet contains:
Active substances: cetirizine dihydrochloride 10 mg.
Excipients: lactose - 106.5 mg, corn starch - 65 mg, povidone (K-30) - 2 mg, magnesium stearate - 1.5 mg.
Shell composition: hypromellose - 3.3 mg, macrogol 6000 - 0.661 mg, titanium dioxide - 0.706 mg, talc - 1.183 mg, sorbic acid - 0.05 mg, polysorbate 80 - 0.05 mg, dimethicone - 0.05 mg.

No customer reviews for the moment.
Dosage and Administration
For adults and children older than 6 years, the daily dose is 10 mg, for adults - in 1 reception, the drug is prescribed for children 5 mg 2 times / day. pills washed down with a small amount of water.
In case of impaired renal function, a dose adjustment of the drug is required (as a rule, the dose is reduced by 2 times).
From the side of the central nervous system: in some cases - weakness, headache, dizziness, drowsiness, psychomotor agitation.
From the digestive system: dry mouth, gastrointestinal disorders.
Other: extremely rarely - hypersensitivity reactions (skin rash, angioedema). Cetrine is usually well tolerated.
Hypersensitivity to the drug. Pregnancy and lactation (breastfeeding).
So far, there is no data on the interaction of cetirizine with other drugs, however, caution should be exercised while prescribing the drug with sedatives.
Pregnancy and Lactation
The drug is contraindicated for use during pregnancy and lactation (breastfeeding).
When used in therapeutic doses, cetirizine does not potentiate the action of ethanol, however, alcohol consumption during the use of the drug is not recommended.
Impact on the ability to drive vehicles and other mechanisms that require high concentration of attention
In therapeutic doses, Cetrine does not affect the speed of psychomotor reactions. However, patients involved in potentially hazardous activities need to be careful.
Symptoms: drowsiness; with a significant overdose of the drug (excess therapeutic dose in 30-40 times in adults and children) - drowsiness, anxiety, itching, rash, urinary retention, fatigue, tremor, tachycardia. In all cases, there was a complete normalization of the state.
Treatment: gastric lavage; if necessary, symptomatic therapy. There is no specific antidote. Hemodialysis is ineffective.
