INTRODUCTION

HEPTIDIN 2MG TABLET contains cyproheptadine, which belongs to the group of medicines called Antihistamines. It is used in the treatment of allergic conditions in children (aged between 2-7 years), such as seasonal and perineal rhinitis, hay fever, skin rashes and allergic conjunctivitis. The medicine is also used as adjuvant therapy for serious allergic reactions.  

Perennial rhinitis refers to specific allergens that cause an allergic reaction year-round, for example, pet hair or dander, food allergies or medicines. Whereas seasonal allergies typically occur due to changes in the weather or environmental changes that include pollen, insects, moisture, dryness, fungi, mold, etc.

HEPTIDIN 2MG TABLET is not recommended for use in premature or newborn infants. This medicine should be used with caution in pregnant women only if recommended by your doctor. It is not recommended for use in breastfeeding mothers. The most common side effects of taking HEPTIDIN 2MG TABLET include dizziness, drowsiness, high fever, etc. Contact your doctor if any of the symptoms worsen.

  • seasonal (occurring during a specific season) and perennial rhinitis (occurring year-round)
  • vasomotor rhinitis (reoccurring inflammation of the mucous membrane in the nose)
  • allergic conjunctivitis (eye inflammation caused by allergy)
  • urticaria (hives) and angioedema (swelling beneath the skin)

HOW HEPTIDIN 2MG TABLET WORKS

HEPTIDIN 2MG TABLET treats allergic reactions by binding with certain receptors and blocking them from binding with histamine in the body. Histamine is a mediator found in our body that is responsible for causing allergic symptoms (such as inflammation, itching, irritation, etc.) as a response to allergic conditions. As a result, it provides relief from the allergic condition.
