Antihistamines

What are Antihistamines

Antihistamines are a class of agents that block histamine release from histamine-1 receptors and are used to treat the symptoms of an allergic reaction, such as edema (swelling), itch, inflammation (redness), sneezing, or a runny nose or watery eyes.

Antihistamines can be further divided into those unlikely to cause drowsiness (non-sedating antihistamines) or those likely to cause drowsiness (sedating antihistamines).

Antihistamines are used in the treatment of allergic reactions, colds, hay fever, hives, and insect bites and stings. Some antihistamines may also be helpful in reducing anxiety, inducing sleep, or at preventing or treating motion sickness.
