What are Numark Hayfever Relief tablets?

Numark Hayfever Relief tablets are a daily hay fever and allergy treatment that’s suitable for adults and children over the age of 6. These tablets use an ingredient called cetirizine to ease your symptoms and help prevent allergic reactions throughout the day. Take just one tablet a day to relieve itching, sneezing, and other unpleasant symptoms caused by your allergies, especially when the pollen count gets higher.


What causes hay fever?

Hay fever happens because you’re allergic to pollen, which comes from plants and is released in particularly high numbers in the spring and summer months. Lots of different types of plants produce pollen, including trees, weeds, grass, and flowers, and you could be allergic to just one type of pollen or any combination of them. This means that your symptoms may appear at different times of the year to others who also have hay fever. When your body comes into contact with pollen it causes a defensive reaction to try and get the allergen out of your system, this reaction produces a natural substance called histamine. Histamine causes allergy symptoms in different parts of your body to try and remove the pollen, such as a runny nose, sneezing, itching and more.


How will the cetirizine in Numark Hayfever Relief ease my hay fever symptoms?

The active ingredient in Numark Hayfever Relief tablets is 10mg of cetirizine, an antihistamine. It works by blocking the histamine in your body, keeping it from causing your symptoms and offering both relief and protection in the process. By working in this way, these tables can help to ease symptoms like sneezing, a blocked or runny nose, itching in your eyes, ears, nose and throat, red or watery eyes, and skin rashes.


Can I use cetirizine tablets for other allergies too?

Yes, cetirizine tablets can be used for other allergies besides hay fever, including dust mite and pet fur allergies. You can also use them to treat urticaria, which is also known as hives or nettle rash, a skin reaction which causes redness, itching, and raised lumps or spots on the skin.


Can I use this product if I’m pregnant or breastfeeding?

You should avoid taking Numark Hayfever Relief tablets during your pregnancy or while breastfeeding. However, if your allergy symptoms are bothering you then you should speak to a doctor or pharmacist for advice. They will be able to recommend some more suitable treatments to take during this time. Sometimes, they may recommend cetirizine tablets as a suitable treatment for you, but you should only take them if you’ve been advised to do so by a medical professional.


Will this antihistamine make me drowsy?

Cetirizine is a non-drowsy antihistamine, so you usually won’t feel sleepy after taking them. However, there is still a chance that you may experience drowsiness, dizziness, or other side effects which could affect your awareness after taking this product. If you do experience any of these symptoms, do not attempt to drive or use any tools or machinery until you’re sure the symptoms have passed and you are safe to do so.


Can I take these tablets with my regular medication?

If you’re taking any other medication you should speak to your doctor or pharmacist before taking Numark Hayfever Relief tablets. This especially applies if you are taking any other medicines which contain antihistamines, including other hay fever remedies and cold and flu treatments.
