What are Piriton tablets?

Piriton tablets are medicine which is designed to help to ease the symptoms of hay fever and other allergies. They work quickly, and can be used before you even come into contact with something, you’re allergic to, keeping irritating symptoms at bay. Piriton can also be used to soothe the itchy rash caused by chickenpox.

 

What is hay fever?

Hay fever is an allergy which means that you’re sensitive to pollen, which is created by grass, trees, and other plants. If you have hay fever, you can experience unpleasant symptoms when you come into contact with pollen, such as:

  • Sneezing
  • Coughing
  • Runny nose
  • Blocked nose
  • Itchy or watery eyes
  • Itchy mouth, nose, throat, or ears
  • Headache
  • Feeling tired

 

How will these tablets help me to manage my allergies?

Piriton tablets contain 4mg of the active ingredient chlorphenamine maleate, which is an antihistamine. Antihistamines work by blocking a natural substance called histamine, which is created when your body comes into contact with something it’s sensitive to, such as pollen, pet dander, or dust. By blocking histamine, this medication prevents allergy symptoms such as sneezing, coughing, and rashes.

 

Can I drive after taking this product?

Piriton tablets can make you feel drowsy after you have taken them. You should not attempt to drive or operate tools or machinery unless you know that you are not affected in this way.

 

Can I take this product if I’m taking other medication?

If you’re taking other medication, you should speak to your doctor or Chemist 4 U pharmacist before using this product, to make sure that your medications won’t interact. You should not take Piriton if you are taking:

  • Monoamine Oxidase Inhibitors (MAOIs), which are medications prescribed for depression. Do not take Piriton if you have taken this type of medication within the past 2 weeks
  • Other antihistamines, including those used in cough or cold medicine

Speak to your doctor or Chemist 4 U pharmacist before taking this product if you are taking:

  • Phenytoin, which is used for epilepsy
  • Anxiety medicines
  • Medicines used to help you sleep

 

Can I drink alcohol while I’m taking these tablets?

You should avoid drinking alcohol while taking Piriton tablets, as it can make side effects of this medication more likely.

 

Can I take Piriton if I’m pregnant or breastfeeding?

If you’re pregnant or breastfeeding, you should speak to your doctor or Chemist 4 U Pharmacist before taking this or any other medication. Some medications may not be safe for you or your baby at this time and you may need to consider an alternative treatment, with the help of a medical professional.

 

How to take Piriton tablets

Swallow Piriton tablets with a sip of water or another cool drink, using the following doses:

  • Adults and children over 12 – Take 1 tablet every 4 – 6 hours as needed. Do not take more than 6 tablets in any 24-hour period
  • Children aged 6 – 12 – Take half a tablet every 4 – 6 hours as needed. Do not take more than 6 tablets in any 24-hour period
  • Elderly people – Speak to your doctor or Chemist 4 U pharmacist before taking this product, as you may be more likely to experience the side effects of this medication. Follow the daily dose recommended by a medical professional, which may be lower than a standard adult dose.

Do not take more than the recommended daily dose.

 

When should Piriton tablets not be used?

Piriton tablets are not suitable for use by children under the age of 6. Do not use this product if you are allergic to antihistamines or any of the listed ingredients in these tablets. Speak to your doctor or Chemist 4 U pharmacist before taking these tablets if you have:
