About Hicet-DC Tablet 10's

Hicet-DC Tablet 10's is composed of two medicines, namely Cetirizine (antihistamine) and Phenylephrine (decongestant). Cetirizine belongs to the class of antihistamines (anti-allergic drugs) that works by blocking the action of histamine, a substance responsible for causing allergic reactions.  It helps relieve allergy symptoms such as sneezing, running nose, watery eyes, itching, swelling, congestion, or stiffness. Phenylephrine helps in shrinking the blood vessels in the nostrils and the passage and reducing stuffy nose. Collectively, both of them help to get relief from symptoms.

    Disease/Condition Glossary

    Common cold: The common cold is an infection caused by viruses, mainly 'rhinovirus' affecting your nose and throat (upper respiratory tract). Children younger than 6 years of age are at the most significant risk of colds, but healthy adults can also be affected to have 2-3 colds annually. In most cases, cold symptoms are recovered within a week or ten days. However, symptoms might last longer in people who smoke or are exposed to allergens like dust, pollutants, etc. Symptoms of a common cold might include stuffy or runny nose, sore throat, cough, congestion, mild body pain or a mild headache, sneezing, low-grade fever, feeling unwell (malaise). In some cases, the discharge from your nose may become thicker and yellow or green, which is not an indication of a bacterial infection. If you observe these symptoms, immediately contact your doctor.

    Allergy: It is an immune system response to foreign elements typically not harmful to your body. These foreign elements are known as ‘allergens.’ Allergic condition varies from person to person. Some might be allergic to certain foods and seasonal allergies like hay fever. At the same time, others might be allergic to pollen or pet dander.
