Taisho Pharmaceutical Co., Ltd. (President: Akira Uehara) will release two products, Pabron Rhinitis Capsule-S and Pabron Rhinitis Capsule-S for Children on November 25. They are new, long-acting therapeutic products in the Pabron Rhinitis series. 

Although the market for rhinitis-related products is influenced by the amount of pollen in the air, it is expanding due to the increase in people with allergies. The release of these products (one for adults and one for children) strengthens the Pabron Rhinitis series and assists people who suffer from sneezing, runny nose and nasal congestion - in all age groups.

Pabron Rhinitis Capsule-S is a long-acting therapeutic product that is effective against allergic rhinitis and acute rhinitis. It contains pseudoephedrine hydrochloride, which relieves swelling of the nasal mucosa, lysozyme chloride, an anti-inflammatory enzyme, an antihistamine, and an agent to reduce nasal discharge. It alleviates sneezing, runny nose and nasal congestion. 

Each capsule contains white granules, which dissolve quickly, and orange granules, which dissolve slowly. Taking twice a day will provide continuous relief.
