Semprex-D is a combination medicine used to relieve symptoms associated with seasonal allergies.
How does this medication work?
Semprex-D contains two medicines: acrivastine and pseudoephedrine. Acrivastine works by blocking the release of a chemical in your body called histamine that causes allergic symptoms. Pseudoephedrine works by narrowing the blood vessels in your nasal passages. Together, they help to improve your condition.
What are the beneficial effects of this medication and when should I begin to have results?
What: Semprex-D may improve allergy symptoms such as sneezing, runny nose, itching, watery eyes, or stuffy nose.
When: Semprex-D may start working within 1 or 2 hours after taking the first dose.
How do I know it is working?
You may notice an improvement in your allergy symptoms after you start taking Semprex-D. This is a good indicator that the medicine is working.
