How does it work?
This medication contains the active ingredient chlorphenamine maleate which is a type of medicine called a sedating antihistamine. It is used to prevent and relieve allergic conditions such as hay fever, insect bites, food allergies and some allergic skin reactions.

Antihistamines stop the effects of histamine and help to relieve these symptoms.
