It is used to relieve the symptoms of hay fever (seasonal rhinitis) which includes sneezing, irritated, runny or blocked nose and itchy, runny or watery eyes (in adults and children over the age of 2 years). It is also used to relieve symptoms of other allergies such as non-seasonal rhinitis (runny and itchy nose), skin allergies (such as rash, itching or hives) and pet or house mite allergies (in adults and children over the age of 6 years).

CETZINE SYRUP is not recommended for use in patients with severe kidney failure. Before taking CETZINE SYRUP inform your doctor if you are due to have any allergy tests as this medicine may affect your allergy test results, have epilepsy or at increased risk of getting convulsions, or difficulty in passing urine (due to spinal, bladder or prostate problems). Avoid alcohol consumption while taking CETZINE SYRUP to prevent any unusual effects.   

CETZINE SYRUP should be used with caution in pregnant women only if clearly advised by the doctor and it is not recommended for use in breast-feeding women as it may pass through breast milk.
