Quick Overview

Benadryl capsules allergy relief 8mg 12 pack

Benadryl gives you effective relief from cold symptoms like nasal congestion, sinus pressure, cough and sore throat. It is taken as symptomatic relief of allergic rhinitis, hayfever and chronic idiopathic urticaria.

It is also used for quick relief from seasonal and perennial allergic reactions. Not only this, it helps in the instances of normal insect stings, even if there is no allergic reaction occurs.

Benadryl, an oral medicine, contains acrivastine – an antihistamine that works by preventing the actions of histamines, a substance that is released in the body as part of its defence mechanisms. The released histamine then binds to its receptors called H1 receptors that lead to allergic symptoms. There is an increase in the blood flow in the area of the allergy that adds to the allergic responses. And this is where acrivastine starts functioning in the body. It doesn’t stop the actual release of histamine but prevent it binding to its receptors by blocking histamine H1 receptors.  This way, blocking the actions of histamine relieves from allergic reactions and hence treats the problems occurring due to them.
