Analogues of the drug
The only criterion that makes moms think before you buy Suprastin and yet to solve the question of what is better Zyrtec or Suprastin or maybe its other analogues, is the impact of tablets on the Central nervous system of the child. That is, the child becomes excessively drowsy. In this case, if mom decided to replace the doctor recommended Her, you can see list of such variants of drugs:
- Diazolin. Drug 1st generation, which is used in the treatment of even asthma. However, despite the availability of such medicines in drugstores of Russia, still use it in the treatment of allergies in children is not recommended. This drug can exacerbate diseases of the digestive tract and this often means other Allergy triggers side effects. So, if mom is trying to decide whether to buy or Suprastin Diazolin, in this case, preference should be given to the first drug.
- Cethrin. He is Cetirizine. The active ingredient in both drugs one – cetirizine. These are preparations of the second generation that have on the child’s body less depressing effect and thus provoking adverse reactions in smaller amounts. These drugs do not act on the Central nervous system of the child and thus begin to act much faster. However, the therapeutic effect of such drugs is less pronounced. The advantages Catrina and Cetirizine can be attributed to the additional anti-inflammatory effect they have on the body.
- Loratadine. The drug of the second generation. The main active ingredient is loratadine. Well-here what medicine can be purchased in the form of simple or effervescent tablets, as well as in the form of a suspension, which is very important for the treatment of the baby. The effect of the drug begins after 15-20 minutes of taking it. The effect lasts for 24 hours. So here, if the choice is between drugs loratadine or Needs, you should remember that Catrina effect kept the same. The same can be considered, if the choice is between loratadine and Cetirizine. If you choose a loratadine or Suprastin, it is worth remembering that all three drugs (loratadine, Effective and Cetirizine) have a more mild therapeutic effect on the body of the child.
- Tavegil. Here if to absorb Tavegil or Suprastin, it is important to pay attention to the fact that the active substance is Tavegilum clemastin. The therapeutic effect occurs within 15 minutes after taking the drug and lasts up to 8 hours. However, Tavegil need to take 2-3 times a day, as well as Suprastin. In this case, the choice Tavegil or Suprastin is equivalent. In addition, the Gel also has a mild sedative effect on the body of the patient. The only criterion that can solve the problem of Tavegil or Suprastin – is the opportunity to purchase Tavegil in form of suspension, which is very important for the treatment of children under 3 years. Otherwise, if the matter Tavegil or Suprastin — which is better is not much visible difference here.
- Claritin. Manufacturer – Belgian pharmaceutical group. This is the second generation product. The tool is endowed with anti-allergic effect. Allowed to treat children from 2 years. Method of production – syrup and pills. The main active ingredient of the drug is loratadine. That is why claritin and loratadine – identical effect of the drug. The only difference is that the loratadine is a generic (drug, manufactured by pharmaceutical companies, according to the formula Claritin). Loratadine, you can buy cheaper unlike Claritin. Therefore, if you choose between Loratadine or Claritin, you should remember that they are absolutely identical. In addition, both drugs can be used not only to treat the manifestations of allergic reactions, but also to neutralize the inflammatory processes in diseases of ENT-organs.
