Pollenase tablets are antihistamines which help to ease symptoms of hay fever and other allergies. They help to relieve sneezing, coughs, itching, redness, swelling and other symptoms by tackling their cause, keeping you to manage your allergies and keep you feeling comfortable.
Hay fever is an allergy which flares up when you come into contact with pollen. When you have hay fever, your body produces a natural substance called histamine when it comes into contact with pollen. Histamine tells parts of your body to react in an attempt to flush the irritating pollen from your body, causing symptoms such as sneezing, coughing, watery eyes, a runny nose, and itching.
Each of these Pollenase tablets contain 4mg of the active ingredient chlorphenamine maleate, which is an antihistamine. Antihistamines work by blocking histamine, keeping it from telling your body to react to pollen. This helps to prevent symptoms of hay fever right at their source.
