INTRODUCTION

RESPIZ SYRUP is a combination of Levocetirizine and Montelukast which belongs to the group of medicines called H1 receptor antagonists and Leukotriene receptor antagonists respectively. RESPIZ SYRUP is indicated for the treatment and prevention of allergic rhinitis, chronic idiopathic urticaria (allergic skin reaction with red raised itchy bumps on skin) and bronchial asthma in children aged between 2-5 years.     

Allergic rhinitis (also known as hay fever) is a heterogeneous disorder characterized by inflammation of the inner lining of nose accompanied by nasal decongestion, repeated sneezing, wheezing or red, watery and itchy eyes.       

It is usually caused by allergens such as pollens, dust, mould or flakes of skin from certain animals and can occur seasonally or year-round. Bronchial asthma is a long-term medical condition in which the path of the airways becomes inflamed, narrow and swollen. Symptoms include coughing, wheezing and chest tightness.    

RESPIZ SYRUP is contraindicated for use in children with severe kidney impairment. Consult your pediatrician before using RESPIZ SYRUP.   

RESPIZ SYRUP may cause certain unpleasant neuropsychiatric events (such as behaviour and mood-related changes: agitation including aggressive behaviour or hostility, depression) in some children and so parents or caregivers should immediately consult your child’s doctor if you notice any unusual behaviour in your child. 

The most common side effects of taking RESPIZ SYRUP are upper respiratory tract infection, fever, cough, inflammation of the pharynx, dryness of mouth, headache and sleepiness. Consult your child’s doctor if any of the side effects worsen.  

USES OF RESPIZ SYRUP

  • Treats and prevents allergic rhinitis, chronic idiopathic urticaria and bronchial asthma in children aged between 2-5 years

HOW RESPIZ SYRUP WORKS

RESPIZ SYRUP provides relief from the symptoms of allergic rhinitis, asthma and urticaria where levocetirizine acts by blocking the actions of histamines (a substance that causes an allergic reaction), at the H1 receptors present on the surface of cells and montelukast acts by blocking the action of leukotrienes D4 (an inflammatory molecule causing narrowing and swelling of the airways) in the lungs, thus causing relaxation of smooth muscle, reduction in swelling and/or inflammation of the airways and a marked decrease in the onset of allergic reactions.

DIRECTIONS FOR USE

Give RESPIZ SYRUP to your child as advised by the physician. Shake well before use. Use a measuring cup to properly measure the dose. Your child’s doctor will decide the correct dose and duration of RESPIZ SYRUP for your child depending upon the child’s age, body weight and disease condition.
