The use of LEVOCETIRIZINE TABLETS 5MG is not recommended in children aged less than 6 years since the currently available film-coated tablets do not yet allow dose adaption. Precaution is recommended with intake of alcohol (see Interactions). Patients with rare hereditary problems of galactose intolerance, the Lapp lactase deficiency or glucose-galactose malabsorption should not take this medicine.
Effects on ability to drive and use machines: Comparative clinical trials have revealed no evidence that cetirizine, the racemate of levocetirizine, impairs mental alertness, reactivity or the ability to drive. This also applies to the use of this drug in the recommended dosage. Nevertheless, patients intending to drive, engage in potentially hazardous activities or operate machinery should not exceed the recommended dose and should take their response to the medicinal product into account. In those sensitive patients, concurrent use with alcohol or other CNS depressants may cause additional reductions in alertness and impairment of performance.
