What is Rupall prescribed for?
Rupall belongs to the class of medications called second-generation antihistamines, specifically the class known as H1 receptor antagonists. It works by blocking the action of one of the body's natural chemicals known as histamine. Histamine is responsible for many of the symptoms caused by allergies. Rupatadine is used for the relief of symptoms associated with seasonal and year-round allergies. These include sneezing, itchy and runny nose, and tearing and redness of the eyes.
