1. What Desloratadine cipla is and what it is used for
Desloratdine Cipla is an antiallergy medicine that does not make you drowsy. It helps control your allergic reaction and its symptoms.
Desloratadine relieves symptoms associated with allergic rhinitis (inflammation of the nasal passages caused by an allergy, for
example, hay fever or allergy to dust mites). These symptoms include sneezing, runny or itchy nose, itchy palate, and itchy, red or
watery eyes.
Desloratdine Cipla is also used to relieve the symptoms associated with urticaria (a skin condition caused by an allergy). These
symptoms include itching and hives.
Relief of these symptoms lasts a full day and helps you to resume your normal daily activities and sleep.

Regarding the duration of treatment, your doctor will determine the type of allergic rhinitis you are suffering from and will determine
for how long you should take Desloratadine Cipla.
If your allergic rhinitis is intermittent (presence of symptoms for less than 4 days per week or for less than 4 weeks), your physician
will recommend you a treatment schedule that will depend on the evaluation of the history of your disease.
If your allergic rhinitis is persistent (presence of symptoms for 4 days or more per week and for more than 4 weeks), your doctor may
recommend you a longer term treatment.
For urticaria, the duration of treatment may be variable from patient to patient and therefore you should follow the instructions of
your doctor.
