What are Piriton Allergy Tablets?

Piriton Allergy Tablets are for those experiencing symptoms from allergies such as hay fever. These tablets work by stopping the symptoms from showing thanks to the active ingredient in the tablets, chlorphenamine maleate, which stops the white blood cells in the body from producing the histamines that cause the symptoms.

  • Magnesium stearate
  • Water

For anyone who is taking antidepressant monoamine oxidase inhibitors (MAOIs), you should also not take these tablets. If you are pregnant or breastfeeding, then contact your doctor if you plan to take these tablets.

How many Piriton tablets should I be taking?

For children aged 6-12, they should take one ½ tablet every 4-6 hours. For adults and children aged 12 and above, the recommended dosage is one tablet every 4-6 hours.

Are there any side effects when taking chlorphenamine maleate tablets?

Some hay fever sufferers may even find that when they do find a hay fever medication that works, it doesn’t completely get rid of all of their annoying hay fever symptoms.

If you’ve ever found yourself in this situation, you may start to wonder if one kind of hay fever medication is enough, and whether it would be safe to take more than one at the same time.

Hay fever is a very common allergy, but how are you supposed to know if you have hay fever?

Sure, you might get a couple of coughs and sneezes in the summer months, but is that just a cold or is hay fever to blame?

If you’ve ever wondered about hay fever and whether you could have it yourself, we’re here to help.

This our handy guide to what hay fever is and how you could be diagnosed with one of the world’s most common allergies.

Does your child have the sniffles and the sneezes long after cold and flu season is over? Your little one could be suffering with hayfever. Hayfever is a common allergy, with up to 40% of children suffering with hayfever, but there are things you can do to help.

Today, we’re going to take a look at all things hayfever and what you can do to help your child through hayfever season.

If you’re a hay fever sufferer, you’ve probably heard of Piriton or have seen it amongst the shelves of hay fever remedies when you’ve been searching for a solution to your allergy.

But what makes Piriton tick? We’re about to take a deep dive into exactly what makes Piriton an effective hay fever remedy, what active ingredients it uses, and when Piriton could be right for you.

There are so many different kinds of hay fever treatments out there that it can be difficult to know where to start, so today we’re going to break it all down so you can decide exactly which product is the best choice for you.

The Piriton in the packs and tubs are exactly the same tablets. The only difference is that one is loose and the other is blister packs.

They both contain the same dosage per tablet and the same active ingredients. I cannot explain the cost differential, as the prices are set by the manufacturers.
