Texa pills are used to relieve symptoms of hay fever, allergies to pollen, dust and other substances in the air, as well as allergies to other substances such as animals and mould. The pill contains cetirizine hydrochloride, which belongs to a class of drugs known as antihistamines. It blocks the action of histamine, a substance in the body that can cause allergic symptoms. Histamine causes symptoms such as sneezing, itching, watery eyes and a runny nose.
