Clamastine Medication Information

Clemastine belongs to a group of medicines called sedative antihistamines. It is usually recommended to relieve allergies such as hay fever and allergic skin conditions.

Exposure to plant pollen, dust and insect bites can cause allergic skin symptoms and hay fever. Common allergic symptoms include skin rash, runny nose, itchy and stuffy nose, sneezing, and watery eyes. These symptoms are caused by the immune system's reaction (histamine secretion) to allergens. Clemastine inhibits the effects of histamine and reduces allergy symptoms.
