Cetirizine (Allerkid) Syrup is a colorless to slightly yellow-colored, clear syrup with fruity grape odor, and sweet grape taste using the TasteRite® Technology.
These medicines contain cetirizine, an anti-allergy. Cetirizine blocks the action of histamine, a substance that causes allergic symptoms.
Cetirizine is less likely to cause drowsiness and dizziness than the older class of anti-allergy medicines.
