You are buying 10 tablets of AERIUS 5mg Desloratadine.
Aerius is an antihistamine, an anti-allergy medicine.
It contains the active ingredient desloratadine which makes the body less sensitive to allergy triggers such as pollen, pet fur or certain foods.
Aerius does not make you drowsy.
Aerius is prescribed to relieve the symptoms of allergies such as hay fever, dust mite allergies or pet allergies, or to reduce hypersensitivity reactions to specific foods. Common symptoms of an allergy include:
- Rhinitis symptoms such as nasal congestion, runny nose or repeated sneezing;
- Coughing and/or shortness of breath;
- Itching in the mouth;
- Nettle rash (skin rash with itchy swellings);
- Eye problems such as infected, watery red and/or itchy eyes.
Aerius works by blocking histamine receptors. This prevents allergic reactions and provides relief from typical allergy symptoms.
Unless otherwise prescribed by your doctor, the usual dose is:
Adults and children aged 12 and above: one to two tablets in the prescribed dose, once a day.
Children aged 6 to 12 years: one tablet in the prescribed dose, once a day.
