Why Levocetirizine Dihydrochloride For Allergies?
Curist Allergy Relief, or levocetirizine dihydrochloride if you’re scientific, is a new, “third generation” antihistamine, first used in 2007 (Benadryl, a first-generation drug, was first used in 1946). In clinical trials, Allergy Relief worked faster than Claritin and was more effective than Zyrtec!
1. We recommend taking this at night; it’ll still last through the whole next day (it’s as effective in hour 1 as in hour 24).
2. If you can, consider starting a week or two before you anticipate symptoms will start.
3. Continue daily for smooth and ongoing allergy relief.
Doctor Pro Tip
“Consider trying Curist Allergy Relief if other antihistamines have not worked, or have stopped working to treat allergy symptoms.”

Curist Allergy Relief is also used by some doctors to treat hives.
