Tavegil Tablets

60 Clemastine 1mg Tablets


Tavegil Tablets

How does it work?

Tavegil tablets contain the active ingredient clemastine, which is a type of medicine called a sedating antihistamine. It works by preventing the actions of histamine.

Histamine is a substance produced by the body as part of its defence mechanisms. It is stored in cells called mast cells, in almost all tissues of the body. When the body reacts to a foreign substance (known as an allergen, eg flower pollen, pet fur, dust mites), the mast cells are stimulated by the allergen and release their stores of histamine.

The released histamine then binds to its receptors (H1 receptors), causing a chain reaction that results in allergic symptoms. It causes an increase in blood flow to the area of the allergy, and the release of other chemicals that add to the allergic response.

All this results in the symptoms of an allergic reaction. In hayfever, this causes inflammation of the nose, eyes, skin or airways and results in itchy watery eyes, a runny nose, sneezing and nasal congestion. Histamine is also responsible for the symptoms of allergic and itchy rashes, and allergic reactions to foods, medicines or insect bites. It can also cause more severe allergic reactions such as angioneurotic oedema, which involves severe swelling of the eyes, lips, tongue or throat.

Clemastine works by blocking histamine H1 receptors. It doesn't prevent the actual release of histamine from mast cells, but prevents it binding to its receptors. This in turn prevents the release of other allergy chemicals and increased blood supply to the area, and provides relief from the symptoms of allergies.

Clemastine is called a sedating antihistamine because it enters the brain in significant quantities and causes drowsiness.

Warning!

  • This medicine may cause drowsiness, blurred vision or dizziness. If affected do not drive or operate machinery. Children should avoid potentially hazardous activities such as riding bikes or climbing trees if affected. Alcohol should be avoided.
  • If you are due to have any skin prick tests to diagnose allergies you should stop taking your antihistamines at least 48 hours before the tests. This is because antihistamines can prevent or lessen the skin reactions that indicate an allergy, and so can make the test results unreliable.
  • If symptoms persist despite treatment, seek medical advice from your doctor or pharmacist.

Good Value But Packaging Needs Work!!!
Wednesday, 13 April 2016  | 

Really good value for money but the Pharmacy need to work on their packing techniques when dispatching goods. My order arrived 1 box of 60 tablets short because the box wasn't secure at all, they may have fallen out of the box or worse been taken by somebody.
Upon telephoning the pharmacy they sent me another box no problem at all. The box ends were taped down this time but still this isn't adequate enough for medication to be sent out by post. The goods in my opinion should be placed in a mail bag to conceal the contents inside.
