How Arexol Syrup works

Arexol Syrup is a combination of two medicines: Cetirizine and Pseudoephedrine which relieve sneezing and runny nose due to allergies. Cetirizine is an antiallergic which blocks the action of a chemical messenger (histamine) responsible for runny nose, watery eyes and sneezing. Pseudoephedrine is a decongestant which narrows the small blood vessels providing temporary relief from congestion or stuffiness in the nose.
