Description of Clarinex Syrup
Clarinex Syrup belongs to the group of drugs known as antihistamines. The drug mainly provides relief from certain seasonal allergies. Several chemicals known as histamines are produced when a person comes into touch with something he/she is allergic to. Histamine production leads to problems like sneezing, watery eyes, itching and certain other uncomfortable sensations. Clarinex Syrup use keeps these in check and prevents the production of naturally occurring histamine to bring down the symptoms mentioned above. The generic name of Clarinex Syrup is desloratadine.
Clarinex Syrup is available in the form of an orange colored fluid which contains 0.5mg/1ml of desloratadine, its most active ingredient.
