Levocetirizine Pharmacodynamics
Levocetirizine (R)-enantiomer of cetirizine, a powerful and selective histamine antagonist that blocks H1-histamine receptors.
Levocetirizine affects the histamine-dependent stage of allergic reactions, as well as reduces the migration of eosinophils, reduces the permeability of the vascular wall and limits the release of inflammatory mediators.
Levocetirizine prevents and facilitates the development of allergic reactions, has antiexudative, antipruritic effects, it has practically no anticholinergic and antiserotonin action. In therapeutic doses it has practically no sedative effect.
