Suprastinex – a blocker of histamine H1 receptors. Levocetirizine is the enantiomer of cetirizine, a competitive histamine antagonist. It blocks H1-histamine receptors, the affinity for which is 2 times higher than that of cetirizine. It has an effect on the histamine-dependent stage of allergic reactions, reduces eosinophil migration, reduces vascular permeability, and limits the release of inflammatory mediators. It prevents the development and facilitates the course of allergic reactions, has an antiexudative, antipruritic effect. Virtually no anticholinergic and antiserotonergic effects. In therapeutic doses, it has practically no sedative effect.

Pregnancy and lactation
Animal studies have not shown a direct or indirect harmful effect on pregnancy, fetal or fetal development, childbirth or postnatal development. There have been no controlled clinical trials on the safety of the drug in pregnant women, so the drug should not be prescribed during pregnancy.
Levocetirizine is excreted in breast milk, so if it is necessary to use it during lactation, breastfeeding should be discontinued while taking the drug.
Influence on the ability to drive vehicles and operate machinery: during the treatment period it is recommended to refrain from engaging in potentially dangerous activities that require an increased concentration of attention and speed of psychomotor reactions.

Excipients: glycerol 85%, propylene glycol, sodium saccharinate, sodium acetate trihydrate, methyl parahydroxybenzoate, propyl parahydroxybenzoate, glacial acetic acid, purified water.

For children aged 2 to 6 years, the drug is prescribed in the form of drops. The daily recommended dose is 2.5 mg in 2 divided doses in 1.25 mg equal doses (2 times 0.25 ml drops = 2 x 5 drops from a dropper). The duration of administration depends on the disease.
