Drug Class: Antihistamines, 2nd Generation

Evidence that H 1 antihistamines relieve itch in atopic dermatitis is limited to study of fexofenadine in which itching was the only outcome measure and study of cetirizine in which off - label doses as high as 40 mg were administer. In atopic dermatitis, histamine may act as a pruritogen not only through H 1 receptors, but also through H 3 and H 4 receptors; in addition, cytokines such as interleukin - 31 and other agents may be important pruritogens. Use of H 1 antihistamines to relieve symptoms in individuals with mastocytosis or to prevent and relieve itchy local allergic reactions to mosquito bites is supported by small, randomize, controlled trials.

Empirical dosage regimens persist; for example, manufacturers recommend diphenhydramine dose for allergic rhinitis is 25 to 50 mg every 4 to 6 hours, and diphenhydramine dose for insomnia is 25 to 50 mg at bedtime. Use of sustained - action formulations persists, despite long terminal elimination half - life values identified for medications such as chlorpheniramine. Intranasal and ophthalmic H 1 antihistamines: t max, t1 / 2, and drug - drug interactions were determined after oral administration. | Intranasal and ophthalmic H 1 antihistamine formulations: onset and duration of action is based on the usual adult dose of 1 to 2 sprays in each nostril or 1 drop in each eye.
