Xyzal (Levocetirizine) - Overview
Xyzal, the branded version of the medication levocetirizine, is a medication used to help relieve symptoms related to allergic rhinitis. Through Push Health, people who need prescription Xyzal can connect with a licensed medical provider who can prescribe levocetirizine when appropriate to do so.
What Is Xyzal Used For?
Levocetirizine, the main ingredient in the medication Xyzal, belongs to a class of medications known as histamine H1-receptor antagonists (selective inhibitors of H1 receptors). Xyzal is indicated for use in relieving symptoms related to seasonal allergies and chronic idiopathic urticaria. Xyzal is similar to another drug, cetirizine, but differs in that it only contains the R enantiomer. It is thought that this enantiomer is the portion of cetirizine with antihistaminic properties and theoretically does not cause as much drowsiness.
Xyzal - Review and Cost
Xyzal's active ingredient is levocetirizine dihydrochloride. Levocetirizine dihydrochloride itself is water soluble and is found as a white, crystalline powder. Following oral administration, levocetirizine reaches peak concentrations in less than 1 hour and mean protein binding is greater than 90%. Xyzal (levocetirizine) can be administered with food if necessary. The half-life in the plasma of levocetirizine is roughly 9 hours. Most Xyzal regimens start at Xyzal 5mg once daily in the evening. Xyzal is available as Xyzal 5 mg tablets and as a Xyzal 2.5 mg per 5 mL oral solution. Xyzal 5 mg tablets are white and oval-shaped and are formulated for immediate release, and studies in healthy subjects show that levocetirizine reduces the formation of a wheal when histamine is injected. Without a coupon, Xyzal can be expensive, costing up to $3 per levocetirizine 5 mg tablet. With a Xyzal coupon, the cost comes down substantially to around 30 cents per tablet at many pharmacies. So, with Xyzal, it helps to look for a Xyzal coupon online and also check with one's insurance to see if it will cover the cost of levocetirizine tablets. Xyzal should be stored at 20° C to 25° C.
Can I Buy Xyzal Online?
Xyzal is available OTC and in prescription form. While Xyzal OTC can be purchased from a pharmacy directly, prescription Xyzal first requires a consultation with a medical provider. Some people want a Xyzal prescription because it may lower the out-of-pocket cost of the medication. It is important to know that one cannot just buy Xyzal online when getting the prescription version. However, people in need of prescription levocetirizine can connect with a medical provider through Push Health who can prescribe Xyzal if appropriate to do so.
Xyzal - Side Effects
Like all medications, Xyzal (levocetirizine) can cause side effects. Common side effects include fatigue, drowsiness or sleepiness, dry mouth, sore throat symptoms and cough. Driving and use of heavy machinery should be avoided while using Xyzal. Xyzal and alcohol or other types of depressants should not be used concomitantly. People with a known hypersensitivity or allergy to levocetirizine or Xyzal in the past should not use the medication. Before using levocetirizine (Xyzal), all patients should consult a licensed medical provider and pharmacist to discuss questions and possible side effects.
