Drug Description


Chlor-Tripolon is used for the temporary alleviation of allergy, hay fever, and common cold symptoms, including red, itchy, watery eyes, sneezing /itchy nose or throat, and a runny nose. 

As an antihistamine, Chlor-Tripolon works by inhibiting the production of histamine, a natural substance generated by the body during allergic reactions. Moreover, it hinders acetylcholine, another natural body substance, to reduce fluid production and alleviate symptoms like watery eyes and a runny nose. 

Uses and Dosage 

Before taking Chlor-Tripolon, carefully review the instructions on the product packaging and the patient information leaflet. Should you have any inquiries, seek guidance from your pharmacist.  

Typically, Chlor-Tripolon is taken every 4 to 6 hours as needed without regard to food intake. 

The dosage of this medication is individualized based on age, medical condition, and treatment response. 

Adhere strictly to the dosage instructions in the product packaging. If your doctor has recommended this medication, ensure you follow their prescribed instructions. 

If your condition persists or worsens, or you suspect a serious medical issue, seek immediate medical assistance.

Before taking Chlor-Tripolon, talk to your doctor if you have any known allergies, particularly to chlorpheniramine or to any of its inactive ingredients. 

Consult your doctor before taking Chlor-Tripolon if you have a history of the following:

Consult your doctor or pharmacist before taking Chlor-Tripolon if you are concurrently taking any other medications, including prescription drugs, over-the-counter products, vitamins, or herbal supplements, as some drug combinations can result in undesirable or potentially harmful effects. 

The concurrent use of Chlor-Tripolon with medications that induce drowsiness or slow respiratory function can intensify these side effects. Before taking this medication alongside a sleeping aid, narcotic pain reliever, muscle relaxant, or medicines for anxiety, depression, or seizures, seek advice from your healthcare provider. 

Chlorpheniramine closely resembles dexchlorpheniramine. Do not use medications that contain dexchlorpheniramine while taking Chlor-Tripolon. 

Chlor-Tripolon may induce drowsiness. Refrain from driving or operating machinery until you know how this medication affects your alertness. 

The use of Chlor-Tripolon can lead to reduced sweating and heightened susceptibility to heat stroke. Take precautions to avoid overheating or dehydration when exercising in hot weather. 

Chlor-Tripolon is unlikely to cause harm to an unborn baby. Nevertheless, if you are pregnant, consult your doctor before taking this medication. 

Chlorpheniramine can potentially enter breast milk and pose a risk to a nursing infant. Moreover, antihistamines may inhibit breast milk production. Seek your doctor’s guidance before taking this medication while breastfeeding.
