Allergies and anti-allergy 3

Allergies and antiallergics. An allergy occurs when the body’s immune system overreacts to a foreign substance, known as an allergen. In other words, this can include things, for example: dust, pollen, pets, food, medicines, among others.

Antihistamines are medicines that block the effects of histamines, a chemical released by the body during an allergic reaction.

These drugs block receptors known as histaminergic. Above all, the main ones are type 1 and 2, which mediate the allergic response.

When they are blocked, the effect of the allergy is reduced at the moment they are absorbed, however, the final solution is to determine the allergen and avoid contact so as not to suffer from this disorder.

Antihistamines can have side effects such as: drowsiness, seasickness, dryness in the mouth, and difficulty urinating.

Both are for allergies, however, the difference is that desloratadine is an active metabolite of loratadine, that is, it does not have to go through the metabolism process to have an effect in the body, the effect is ‘faster’ ‘ than that of loratadine.

Loratadine vs Desloratadine

Basically it is the chemical composition. Firstly, Loratadine is a second generation drug and secondly, Desloratadine is a third generation (newer) drug, derived from Loratadine. In conclusion, the change in the chemical composition gives it greater potency and fewer side effects to it.

Chemically “Des” means “separated from” The active ingredient of loratadine is desloratadine. Above all, the difference is that loratadine comes with an “extra” chemical group. Subsequently, over the years, it was possible to purely synthesize the active ingredient “only” which is desloratadine.

Questions and comments. For other items. Allergies and anti-allergy

Can allergic rhinitis be cured or is it simply treatable? I have read something about immunotherapy in some places it says that it is a curative treatment for chronic allergic rhinitis, can you tell us more about that, I know that like me many people will appreciate it.

I went through loratadine, clofeniramide, desloratadine and I’ve reached the point where even cetirizine isn’t working for me… I don’t want to use Montelukast because of its long-term side effects on the brain.
