Loratadine Actavis is a medication used to relieve symptoms associated with allergies, such as sneezing, runny or itchy nose, and itchy eyes. It is an antihistamine drug that works by blocking the effects of histamine, a substance that is released by the body in response to allergens and causes the symptoms of an allergic reaction.
Loratadine Actavis is available in tablet form and is typically taken orally, with or without food. The dosage will depend on the patient's age, medical history, and the severity of their symptoms. It is important to follow the instructions of a healthcare professional when taking Loratadine Actavis.
Common side effects of Loratadine Actavis include drowsiness, dry mouth, and headache. In rare cases, more severe side effects may occur, such as difficulty breathing, swelling of the face, tongue or throat, and a rapid or irregular heartbeat. If any of these symptoms occur, medical attention should be sought immediately.
Loratadine is a second generation antihistamine used to manage symptoms of allergic rhinitis. Due to their lack of sedative and CNS adverse effects, loratadine along with other second generation antihistamines have become preferable over their 1st generation counterparts in many clinical situations.
Loratadine is a piperidine histamine H1-receptor antagonist with anti-allergic properties and without sedative effects. Loratadine blocks the H1 histamine receptor and prevents the symptoms that are caused by histamine activity on capillaries, bronchial smooth muscle, and gastrointestinal smooth muscle, including vasodilatation, increased capillary permeability, bronchoconstriction, and spasmodic contraction of gastrointestinal smooth muscle. Loratadine does not cross the blood-brain barrier and does not cause central nervous system effects.
