Rhinos SR

Rhinos SR

Rhinos SR is a medicine that is useful for relieving the symptoms of allergic rhinitis, such as sneezing, itchy nose, runny nose, and nasal congestion. Rhinos SR cannot cure allergies

Rhinos SR contains loratadine and pseudoephedrine. Loratadine is an antihistamine that works by inhibiting the effects of histamine that trigger allergic reactions when the body is exposed to allergens (allergy-triggering substances).

While pseudoephedrine is a decongestant that works by narrowing the blood vessels in the nasal passages, so that nasal congestion can subside.

Rhinos SR is available as a delayed-release capsule. Each capsule contains 5 mg of loratadine, 60 mg of immediate-release pseudoephedrine HCI, and 60 mg of delayed-release pseudoeohedrine HCI.
