Piriton Syrup Chlorphenamine Maleate 150ml is an antihistamine syrup that is used to relieve the symptoms of allergies, such as hay fever, hives, and allergic skin reactions. It contains chlorphenamine maleate, which is an antihistamine that works by blocking the effects of histamine, a chemical that is released by the body during an allergic reaction.
