The composition of a 0.05% solution of Vizin Allergy:
- levocabastine hydrochloride 540 mcg - active active ingredient;

Eye drops are packed in a plastic bottle of 4 ml, which is placed in a cardboard box.
Mechanism of action
The main active component of the drug Vizin Alergi - levocabastin belongs to the group of drugs that block the H 1 histamine receptors. These receptors are located in the bronchi and tissues. In the process of developing an allergic reaction, huge amounts of histamine are released into the bloodstream, which, by acting on histamine receptors H1, provokes swelling, spasm, redness, tearing and itching. Levocabastin blocks the effect of histamine on specific receptors and eliminates the symptoms of allergies. The effect of eye drops Vizin Allergy begins 5 minutes after their use and lasts 12 hours.
Indications for use
- allergic conjunctivitis .
- hypersensitivity to levocabastine, allergy or intolerance to auxiliary components of eye drops;
- use of contact lenses;
- children's age up to 12 years.
The use of drops in the elderly and with serious pathologies of the kidneys requires special care.
Use during pregnancy and lactation
Due to insufficient study of the effect of levocabastine on the fetus, the use of Vizin Alergi eye drops during pregnancy is not recommended. It is known that levocabastin penetrates into breast milk, so during the administration of Vizin Alergi breastfeeding should be abandoned.
Dosing and Administration
