History of Antihistamine

Antihistamines replace histamine of the two receiver sites where it becomes bound to various vulnerable tissues, thus stopping histamine-triggered reactions under such circumstances as stress, inflammation, and allergy. The antihistamines that were the first to be presented are ones that fix at the so-called H1 receiver sites; they are therefore selected H1-blocking agents and face selectively all the pharmacological properties of histamine except those on stomach secretion.
