Cetirizine 10mg is an antihistamine medication that is commonly used to relieve symptoms of allergies, such as hay fever (allergic rhinitis) or allergic skin conditions (e.g., urticaria or hives). It is available over-the-counter in many countries and can also be prescribed by a healthcare provider in some cases.


  • Cetirizine works by blocking the action of histamine, a natural substance produced by the body during an allergic reaction. Histamine is responsible for various allergy symptoms, such as sneezing, runny or itchy nose, itchy or watery eyes, and itching of the skin. Cetirizine helps to relieve these symptoms by reducing the effects of histamine.

Common Uses:

  • Cetirizine 10mg tablets are typically used to relieve the following allergy-related symptoms:
    • Sneezing
    • Runny or itchy nose
    • Itchy or watery eyes
    • Itching of the throat or palate
    • Skin itching and hives


  • Cetirizine is taken orally, usually as a 10mg tablet. The recommended dose for adults and children aged 6 years and older is typically one tablet (10mg) once daily. For children aged 2 to 6 years, the dosage may be reduced to half a tablet (5mg) once daily, or as directed by a healthcare provider.


  • Cetirizine is generally effective at relieving allergy symptoms and is known for causing less drowsiness compared to some older antihistamines. It typically starts to work within about 1 to 2 hours after taking a dose and provides relief for up to 24 hours.

Side Effects:

  • While Cetirizine is well-tolerated by many people, some individuals may experience side effects. Common side effects may include drowsiness (though it is less likely compared to older antihistamines), dry mouth, headache, and stomach discomfort. Serious side effects are rare but should be reported to a healthcare provider if they occur.


  • Cetirizine is generally considered safe for most people, but it should not be used in individuals who have a known hypersensitivity or allergy to cetirizine or any of its components. It is also important to use caution when taking cetirizine if you have certain medical conditions or are taking other medications. Always consult with your healthcare provider or pharmacist if you have any concerns about using cetirizine, especially if you are pregnant, nursing, or have any underlying health issues.
