Sedating antihistamine abuse sex dating in sutherland uk
Healthcare professionals working in long term care communities and skilled nursing facilities should work with families, prescribers, and other members of the healthcare team to discourage the use of first-generation antihistamines and other highly anticholinergic medications in older patients.These antihistamines have low receptor specificity and interact with both peripheral and central histamine receptors and readily cross the blood-brain barrier.This leads to significant central nervous system side effects, including sedation, drowsiness, somnolence, fatigue, cognitive decline, psychomotor effects, and loss of coordination.Histamine acts on histamine receptors, causing a chain reaction that results in allergic symptoms.
In allergic reactions like hay fever, histamine causes inflammation of the nose, eyes or airways, resulting in itchy, watery eyes, a runny, blocked or itchy nose and sneezing.
In allergic skin reactions histamine causes skin inflammation, rashes and itching.
