Best Cold and Allergy Relief

ADEZIO Tablet/ADEZIO Syrup

ADEZIO relieves allergy and cold symptoms fast so you and your child don’t have to suffer a minute longer than necessary.

According to a study conducted by National University Hospital of Singapore, on in every two children suffers from allergies. Blocked nose, frequent sneezing, watery eyes and swelling are some of the common symptoms of an allergic reaction. Allergies can also manifest as patches of itchy, red, raised bumps on the skin, commonly knows as hives. For children with chronic allergies, inadequate symptom control may contribute to learning impairment resulting from school absences, poor quality of life, and can lead to mental and emotional distress.

Adults too suffer from allergies and hives. For both adults and children, allergies can be triggered by anything from food, chemicals to environmental pollutants here and overseas. Adults can build resistance to allergens by taking medications containing antihistamines, which alleviate the symptoms of allergies such as hives and allergic rashes. For children one of the most common treatments for allergies is the use of nasal drop or sprays. However, given the difficulty of administering nasal drops/sprays, children do not generally respond as well to them. Crucially, they also do not treat symptoms resulting from hives.

This is where ADEZIO comes in handy. A second-generation antihistamine, it provides fast-acting relief for allergy and cold symptoms, for both adults and children. It is available in two forms: ADEZIO tablet and ADEZIO syrup. To make it easier for children to consume, the syrup has been formulated with a tasty lychee flavour (alcohol-and-sugar-free). Best of all, ADEZIO is non-drowsy and its once-a-day dosing formula makes it a recommended choice for adults and school children. ADEZIO is handy especially while on holiday – why let allergies ruin your vacation?
