|Bilamin 20 mg
Bilastine is an antihistamine; its principal effects are mediated via selective inhibition of peripheral H1 receptors. The antihistaminic activity of bilastine has been documented in a variety of animal and human models. It shows moderate to high affinity for histamine H1-receptors and no affinity for muscarinic, serotonergic, dopaminergic and noradrenergic receptors. Bilastine has been demonstrated to have limited distribution to the brain following oral administration.
Each tablet contains Bilastine INN 20 mg.
