Table of contents
Desloratadine ratiopharm is a medicine used in adults to relieve the symptoms of the following conditions:
- allergic rhinitis (inflammation of the nasal passages caused by an allergy, for example hay fever or allergy to dust mites).
- chronic idiopathic urticaria (a recurrent skin condition with symptoms including itching and hives) as diagnosed by a doctor. ‘Idiopathic’ means that the cause of the disease is unknown.
Desloratadine ratiopharm contains the active substance desloratadine and is a ‘generic medicine’. This means that Desloratadine ratiopharm contains the same active substance and works in the same way as a ‘reference medicine’ already authorised in the EU called Aerius.
