Cetirizine Hydrochloride 10mg Tablets


Cetirizine 10mg Tablets – Made with the powerful properties of an antibiotic known as Cetirizine, these tablets help in treating certain infections caused by bacteria including gonorrhea; a sexually transmitted disease, bronchitis; infection of the airway tubes of the lungs, pneumonia, and infections of the throat, ear, skin, tonsils, sinuses, and urinary tract. This medication is sold with the brand name CETRICARE at the Best Cetirizine Tablets Manufacturer, Servocare Lifesciences.

Cetirizine is an extended-spectrum antibiotic that belongs to a class of drugs known as a cephalosporin antibiotic. It works by killing the bacteria that cause infections.
