Your child’s medicine at a glance

Fexoryl M Syrup is commonly prescribed in children to treat symptoms of allergy such as runny nose, sneezing, itching, swelling, congestion, and watery eyes. It may also help in the treatment of asthma and skin allergies.

Give this medicine to your child at a fixed time before or after food in the prescribed dose, time, and way. For asthma, prefer giving Fexoryl M Syrup in the evening or 2 hours before physical activity. For allergy, it is best to give it either in the morning or in the evening, depending upon the time of onset of symptoms. In case your child has both, prefer giving it in the evening. If your child vomits within 30 minutes of taking this medicine, give the same dose again, but skip it if it’s already time for the next dose.

Your child may start to feel better after a few regular doses. However, you must still complete the prescribed dose to ensure maximum benefit. Moreover, stopping the medicine abruptly may worsen your child’s condition. This medicine may cause some minor and temporary side effects like vomiting, diarrhea, nausea, dizziness, body aches, rash, and headache. Usually, these episodes subside once your child’s body adapts to the medicine. However, in case these effects persist or start bothering your child, consult your child’s doctor without any delay.

Let your child’s doctor know if your child is already taking any medicines. Also, narrate your child’s complete medical history, including any prior episodes of allergy, heart problem, blood disorder, vascular disorders, birth defects, airway obstruction, lung anomaly, skin disorder, liver impairment, and kidney malfunction. This information is critical for dose alterations and in planning your child’s overall treatment.

In Treatment of Hay fever

Fexoryl M Syrup provides relief from symptoms such as blocked or runny nose, sneezing, and itchy or watery eyes. This will make it easier for your child to go about their daily activities.

In Bronchial Asthma

Asthma is a condition in which your child’s airways become narrow and as a result, breathing becomes difficult. Fexoryl M Syrup helps in easy breathing by widening the airways. It also gives relief from symptoms such as tightness in the chest, shortness of breath, wheezing, and coughing.

In Allergic skin conditions

Fexoryl M Syrup is effective in treating allergic skin conditions with inflammation and itching such as urticaria. It works by reducing the actions of chemicals in the body that cause inflammation of the skin. It reduces the redness, rash, pain, or itchiness caused by the skin’s reaction to an irritant.

How Fexoryl M Syrup works

Fexoryl M Syrup contains Montelukast and fexofenadine. Together these two relieve sneezing and runny nose caused due to allergies. Fexofenadine is an antiallergic that blocks a chemical messenger (histamine) responsible for runny nose, watery eyes, and sneezing. Montelukast is a leukotriene antagonist that works by blocking another chemical messenger (leukotriene). This reduces inflammation (swelling) in the airways and nose and improves symptoms.
