Polaramine Syrup. Like the other products in the Polaramine antihistamine range, each 5ml ( millilitre ) of Polaramine syrup contains 2mg of Dexchlorpheniramine Maleate as its active ingredient. The difference is that Polaramine syrup has been specially formulated for use by children up to 12 years of age. Polaramine relieves the discomfort of allergy symptoms often associated with allergic rhinitis ( hayfever ), including an itchy nose and throat, watery and burning eyes, and nasal discharge. It reduces the reaction caused by mosquito or sandfly bites, or the stings of other insects. Hives ( urticaria ) and other allergic skin conditions will also be soothed by Polaramine. Polaramine Syrup is available in a 100ml bottle of apricot/orange flavoured syrup.
Polaramine should not be used by children under 1 year of age unless otherwise advised by your doctor or pharmacist.
Children aged 6 to 12 months take 0.5-1ml every 6 to 8 hours.
Children aged 1 to 2 years take 1-1.25ml every 6 to 8 hours.
