How Does levocetirizine Work?

Levocetirizine is an orally administered medication that is used to treat the symptoms of hay fever and other allergies. Levocetirizine belongs to a class of medications called antihistamines, and it works by blocking the effects of histamine in the body. Histamine is a chemical that is released by the body in response to allergens, and it can cause symptoms such as sneezing, itching, and a runny nose. Levocetirizine blocks the effects of histamine, which helps to relieve the symptoms of allergies.
