Spring allergy in adults and children occurs in response to pollen, the maximum concentration of which is usually observed in the early morning hours. Favorable conditions for palination (dusting) are sufficient humidity and sunny warm weather. Spring allergy most often occurs on pollen of birch, hazel, alder; as well as ambrosia and wormwood.

Prevention of the onset of rhinitis and other manifestations of hay fever in the spring and fall consists in observing the correct mode of work and rest, a balanced diet and keeping contact with substances of an allergenic nature to a minimum. So that in the future there is no question of what to do with an allergy in a child, prophylactic monitoring is necessary to identify respiratory diseases, which in a chronic course can lead to an increase in the sensitive child’s body to seasonal allergens.

active substance: Levocabastine hydrochloride (0.54 mg) in terms of 0.5 mg levocabastin;
Excipients: propylene glycol 48.26 μl, sodium hydrogen phosphate 8.66 mg, sodium hydrogen phosphate monohydrate 5.38 mg, hypromellose (2910 5
Pharmacotherapeutic group – antiallergic agent – H1-histamine receptor blocker.
ATX code – R01AC02
Levocabastin is a selective blocker of H1-histamine receptors with a long lasting effect. The local effect occurs after 5 minutes, and the action lasts for 12 hours. After intranasal administration, nasal spray “Tizin ® Alergi” eliminates the symptoms of allergic rhinitis: nasal discharge, sneezing, itching in the nasal cavity.
With each intranasal administration at a rate of 50 µg / dose, approximately 30–40 µg of levocabastin is absorbed, the maximum concentration of levocabastin in the blood plasma is reached approximately 3 hours after nasal administration. Levocabastin is approximately 55% bound to plasma proteins.
The main metabolite of levocabastine, acylglucuronide, is formed during glucuronidation, which is the main metabolic pathway. Levocabastin is excreted mainly with the urine in unchanged form (about 70% of the absorbed amount). The half-life of levocabastine is about 35-40 hours.
INDICATIONS FOR USE
Symptomatic therapy of seasonal and year-round allergic rhinitis.
Hypersensitivity to any of the components of the drug.
Children’s age up to 6 years.
