Meaning of Antihistamine
Antihistamine, is a pharmaceutical drug class which, as of 2015, includes two types of drugs: histamine H1-receptor antagonists and histamine H2-receptor antagonists. Antagonists of the histamine H1-receptor are used to treat allergic reactions in the nose (e.g., itching, runny nose, and sneezing) and which are used off-label for insomnia. They are sometimes also used to treat motion sickness or vertigo caused by problems with the inner ear. Antagonists of the histamine H2-receptor are used to treat gastric acid conditions (e.g., peptic ulcers and acid reflux). - See link
