GENERIC NAME: LEVOCABASTINE SPRAY - NASAL (lee-voh-cab-AS-teen)
USES: Levocabastine is a fast-acting antihistamine used to treat the symptoms of a condition called allergic rhinitis. Symptoms generally include sneezing, itchy nose, and runny nose. Antihistamines work by blocking the chemical (histamine) in your body that can cause these allergic symptoms.
HOW TO USE: Learn all preparation and usage instructions (e.g., priming the spray) in the product package. If any of the information is unclear, consult your pharmacist. Before each use, clear your nasal passages (i.e., blow your nose). Also, shake the bottle well before each dose. Spray this medication into each nostril usually two to four times daily; or as directed by your doctor. The dosage and length of treatment is based on your medical condition and response to therapy. Inform your doctor if your condition does not improve in 3 days.
