PERIACTIN LIQUID (CYPROHEPTADINE)

Description of Periactin Liquid

Periactin Liquid or generic Cyproheptadine is a prescription strength antihistamine that will help relieve your allergy symptoms, such as itchy, watery eyes, runny nose, and sneezing. It is also beneficial for treating itchy rashes and mild reactions to insect bites. The liquid formula of Periactin is ideal for young children and adults that have a problem taking pills or tablets. This is a sedating antihistamine so it should not be given to children under 2 years of age. It’s important that you use a dosing syringe or spoon for exact measurement as under dosing will be ineffective and over dosing can be dangerous. The generic alternative is not manufactured by the company that makes the brand product.

What is Histamine and How do Antihistamines work?

Histamine is a naturally produced chemical in your body that is signaled when you have been exposed to an allergen that your immune system believes will cause you harm. Mast cells store histamine and can be stimulated by allergens such as pet dander, grass or tree pollen, an insect bite, or rash. This causes the mast cells to release histamine to ward off the intruder. Histamine will then bind to histamine receptors which causes an increase in blood flow to the affected area, while other chemicals are signaled and sent to the area under attack. The extra fluid is meant to help flush out the allergen by causing your eyes to water, nose to run, and sneezing. Periactin Liquid will block the receptors so when the histamine is released, it cannot complete the sequence of events that cause your symptoms.

Things Your Doctor Should Know Before Prescribing Periactin Liquid

If you are pregnant, trying to become pregnant, or are breast feeding, ask your doctor if Periactin Liquid is safe to take. Discuss other medical conditions or allergies you have and tell the doctor about any OTC and Rx drugs you are currently taking or using, including herbal remedies and dietary or vitamin supplements. This will help your doctor determine the correct Periactin dose for you to take.

Important Information About Periactin Liquid

Due to the sedating effect of Periactin Liquid, you should not drive or take part in any activity that may be considered dangerous if you are not alert and attentive. Keep Periactin Liquid and other drugs out of children’s reach and away from pets and never share any meds with others. Do not start, stop, or change the dosage of any medications without consulting with your doctor first.
