Increased sedation: Piriton is a brand name for chlorphenamine maleate aka Chlorpheniramine Maleate a classical antihistamine whose major adverse effect is drowsiness & prolonged reaction time. Other side-effects include constipation & in older men, urinary retention. Cetirizine (zyrtec) has the same side-effect profile. The combination will enhance these adverse effects. Take only with a physician's supervision.
