non sedating antihistamine for children-16

Several effective, easy-to-use medications are available to treat allergy symptoms.

Some are available by prescription; others, over-the-counter.

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).

They both calm your immune system’s reaction to allergens. They also take effect at different times and stay effective for different durations. Antihistamines have a reputation of making you sleepy because the first types crossed into your central nervous system more easily and had a direct effect on your alertness.
