What Is Cetirizine Used For?

Cetirizine hydrochloride is a selective H1-receptor antagonist that is used for relief of rhinitis symptoms from seasonal allergies caused by ragweed, grass, tree pollen and other allergens. Cetirizine medication can also be used for specific cases of perennial allergic rhinitis and chronic urticaria. Cetirizine is an antihistamine that is a metabolite of hydroxyzine and inhibits H1 receptors peripherally. Cetirizine medication has been shown to inhibit the wheal and flare reaction seen after intradermal injection of histamine. Cetirizine is a less selective version of Xyzal and is also similar to azelastine, fexofenadine (Allegra), hydroxyzine and loratadine (Claritin).
