Answers (1)


Correct Option (C)

An antihistamine called cetirizine is used to treat symptoms of allergies like watery eyes, runny nose, itchy eyes and nose, sneezing, hives, and itching. It works by preventing your body from making a certain natural substance called histamine during an allergic reaction. Cetirizine does not affect preventing hives or treating severe allergic reactions like anaphylaxis. Always bring your epinephrine injector with you if your doctor has prescribed it to treat allergies. Cetirizine should never be used in place of epinephrine.


Option (A) Ranitidine is a medication that makes your stomach produce less acid. In addition to treating and preventing stomach ulcers, it was also used to treat indigestion, heartburn, acid reflux, and gastro-oesophageal reflux disease (GORD).

Option (B) Ulcers can be treated with cimetidine; gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD), in which stomach acid flows backwards, causing heartburn and damage to the food tube (esophagus), and conditions like Zollinger-Ellison syndrome, in which the stomach produces too much acid. Cimetidine can be purchased over the counter to prevent and treat heartburn symptoms caused by acid indigestion, sour stomach, or both. H2 blockers are a class of drugs that include cimetidine. It diminishes how much corrode is made in the stomach.

Option (D) Iproniazid, also known as Marsilid, Rivivol, Euphozid, Iprazid, Ipronid, or Ipronin, is a hydrazine-class, non-selective, irreversible MAOI. It is a xenobiotic that was initially developed for use in the treatment of tuberculosis, but in later years, it became more widely used as an antidepressant.
