Lodrane 24 is an extended release antihistamine formulation which provides around the clock coverage with a single daily dose of one or two capsules. Lodrane 24 D contains the same antihistamine in combination with a nasal decongestant for those patients which may require addition relief from sinus and/or nasal congestion. The once-a-day dosing schedule for both products greatly enhances patient convenience and compliance.
Both Lodrane 24 and Lodrane 24 D also offer the flexibility to reduce the total amount of antihistamine or antihistamine/decongestant which the patient requires to achieve the desired results while still maintaining a once daily dosing schedule. Patients often find that when allergy symptoms begin to subside or during periods of lower allergen levels, they can take a single capsule daily and continue to remain allergy free. When pollen and allergens are at high levels, the patient may need to return to a dosage schedule of two capsules daily until these levels subside. This flexibility helps the patient maintain a sufficient level of antihistamine coverage at the lowest possible dose. This results not only in effective therapy with a potential for fewer side effects, but is also a very cost effective approach.
