Selection Of A Good Allergy Medicine?
In the afternoon I want to ask about incidal OD, is it a medicine for allergies. Can cause drowsiness huh? Which CTM is good? thanks.
Hello Kezia, thank you for asking with HealthReplies.com.
The drug you mentioned above (Incidal OD) is one of the brands of antihistamines that contains the active ingredient cetirizine dihydrochloride which functions to relieve allergic symptoms, such as sneezing, itching, colds, or watery eyes. This drug does cause drowsiness, so avoid taking it while driving, operating machinery, or doing activities that require full awareness.
Chlorpheniramine or CTM drugs are also the same class of drugs as cetirizine, which is an antihistamine drug, only in different generations. Both of these drugs (CTM and cetirizine) are indeed commonly given to people with allergies. These CTM drugs also cause drowsiness.
