Description

Diphenhydramine is an antihistamine. Diphenhydramine is used to treat allergic reactions, atopic dermatitis, or itchy skin, motion sickness, vomiting, coughing, or anxiety. Histamines are chemicals that are released in the body in response to inflammation or allergies. When histamines attach to H-1 receptors in the body, it causes the blood vessels to widen which leads to swelling and itchiness. Diphenhydramine blocks the effects of histamines, reducing inflammation and itchiness.

Key Benefits

  • Relieves coughing
  • Effectively relieves allergy symptoms and itching caused by insect bites
  • Helps heart beat more efficientlyCan be used as a sedative to treat motion sickness or travel anxiety

How It Works

Diphenhydramine comes in 25 mg minitabs or 50 mg capsules, and is a generic version of Benadryl. As an antihistamine, it counteracts the effect of histamine, which causes symptoms like itching and sneezing.

Indications

Diphenhydramine HcL is an ethanolamine derivative H1 receptor antihistamine, with secondary sedative, anticholinergic, antitussive, and antiemetic effects. In other words, this drug blocks the part of the brain that responds to allergens (histamine), relaxes them, keeps them from coughing, and prevents nausea. Most offten used in pets that suffer from seasonal allergies, this medication is helpful when dealing with rashes, like pruritus or insect bites, or when dealing with motion sickness. Available in multiple strengths (prescription and OTC) and as a tablet or an injectable, there are a number of different ways to optimize the way your pet receives their treatment depending on their condition.
