Hi Ferry,

Thank you for using the HealthReplies.com service.

Cetirizine is an anti-histamine group that has anti-allergic / itchy effects, which has a red logo and is not sold freely in Indonesia. This type of drug cannot be taken without a doctor's prescription because it can aggravate the disease, be toxic or even cause death at inappropriate dosages. Therefore, its use must be in accordance with a doctor's prescription. Although some diseases that cause cold symptoms can be caused by allergic reactions, not all colds need to be given the anti-histamine class.

However, for cough medicines that contain glyceril guaiacolate, this drug has a blue logo which means it can be purchased without a doctor's prescription, but in its use still must be careful and adjusted to the rules of use listed in the brochure, because it can have side effects.

In addition, some things that you need to consider in the use of drugs are:

Pay attention to the name of the drug and its contents Pay attention to the expiration date of the drug, make sure it is still in good condition. Use according to the dosage and rules of use listed on the package. Note the side effects that can arise, or contraindications to the use of the drug. it is advisable to consult a doctor. Sometimes some illnesses with cough symptoms require other treatments to resolve the cause directly, or require a different type of cough medicine.

So, hopefully you can help.
