i have written about histamine in other posts, here............it may b that by counter-acting the histamine ur stomach is producing, it may help to stop subsequent production of gastrin & others..........but it is only a stop gap.........the over production of histamine is ur stomach' way of trying to get the production of hydrochloric acid stepped up..........when all is in the proper amounts, there is a feed-back that stops the excess histamine..........when things like this happen, it usually cause there's something screwy in denmark...........some part of the production of digestive juices & subsequent hormones is not working properly...........taking some drug to stop or counter-act any part of the process, doesn't really cure anything..........i've been dealing with health issues for many yrs & it has been my experience, that if u only treat various parts of the cascade of things our bodies do to try to fix things, then somewhere along the line, something else will take the place of what u r dealing with now..........& when that happens, the thing that takes it's place, is usually worse than the other thing i dealt with........it can take yrs or even decades to happen...........our bodies will go a long way to get our attention.........& we can ignore it to our detriment!!!!
Benedryl is one of the more effective antihistamines. The issue is it makes some people really drowsy. Although you may find if you take it regularly for a few days you will compensate for that.Histamine in the brain is the "stay awake" signal and antihistamines that cross into the brain can turn that signal off. I think there is generic claritin OTC now which may be a bit better price wise, if you need something less sleep inducing during the day.
