Neo Citran is an antihistamine and decongestant combination used in the treatment of nasal congestion, sneezing, and runny noses 1. The medication works by preventing the effects of a chemical naturally produced in the body called histamine, which is responsible for the symptoms associated with the common cold. As with most cold medications, a number of side effects are associated with using the drug.
If you are experiencing serious medical symptoms, seek emergency treatment immediately.

Important Safety Information
Neo Citran has been known to cause drowsiness and dizziness in some users 1. As a result, it is recommended that users do not operate any type of machinery (including automobiles) while using this medication. Please tell your doctor if you have ever had any type of allergic reaction to an antihistamine in the past. If you are pregnant, the occasional use of Neo Citran will not cause any harm to the unborn baby 1.
Always use Neo Citran in direct conjunction with your doctor's orders and never exceed the dosage instructions written on the label 1. If you find that this medication upsets your stomach, it is recommended to take your next dosage with a meal. Always swallow the pill whole and never crush, break up, or chew the medication before ingesting. If you find the capsule is too big to swallow alone, you may put it into a food (i.e. peanut butter) to make it easier to swallow.
If you experience any of the aforementioned side effects, contact your doctor immediately for an adjusted treatment method.
If an overdose of Neo Citran is suspected, contact your local poison center and head directly to the emergency room 1.
Neo Citran is meant for the treatment of cold symptoms only and should never be used recreationally for any reason 1.
