What is Elina?
Elina containing the active ingredient mizolastine is considered a non sedating antihistamine type of medication. The medication works by preventing the actions of the natural substance histamine when coming into contact with allergens such as dust, pollen, pet fur or insect bites. It can be used to relieve a variety of symptoms such as rashes, sneezing, watery eyes and runny or blocked nose caused by hay fever, nasal allergies and urticaria.
How is Elina used?
Elina is usually taken orally once per day or as directed by a doctor. The medication can be taken with or without food but should be taken with a glass of water. Contact a doctor for the correct dosage as it will depend on the patientís condition and their response to the therapy. The tablets should be swallowed whole and not cut, crushed or chewed prior to consumption to prevent too much of the drug from being released at once.
Patients using Elina may encounter unwanted side effects such as:
- Dry mouth
- Increased appetite and weight gain
Contact a doctor immediately should side effects persist or worsen.
Immediately proceed to your nearest emergency department if you suffer an allergic reaction. Symptoms usually associated with such a reaction include difficulty breathing or swallowing, chest tightness, swelling, skin rashes, and hives.
Elina is not always suitable for all patients. Always consult your health care provider prior to using this medication if you are pregnant, breastfeeding, trying to conceive, using any other medication (prescription or non-prescription), using any herbal products or supplements, or if you have any allergies or other health problems.
The correct dosage and prescription commonly depend on the patient and the condition being treated. Do not adjust your dosage without the approval of your health care provider. This product is only for use as prescribed and instructed.
