Cipractine uses and description

Sort by popularity
Cipractine - Cipractine an antihistamine that reduces the natural chemical histamine in the body. Histamine can produce symptoms of sneezing, itching, watery eyes, and runny nose

Cipractine is used to treat sneezing, itching, watery eyes, runny nose, and other symptoms of allergies.

Cipractine may also be used for purposes not listed in this medication guide.

Cipractine is a piperidine antihistamine. Unlike other antihistamines, this drug also antagonizes serotonin receptors. This action makes Cipractine useful in conditions such as vascular headache and anorexia. Cipractine does not prevent the release of histamine but rather competes with free histamine for binding at HA-receptor sites. Cipractine competitively antagonizes the effects of histamine on HA-receptors in the GI tract, uterus, large blood vessels, and bronchial smooth muscle. Most antihistamines possess significant anticholinergic properties, but Cipractine exerts only weak anticholinergic actions. Blockade of central muscarinic receptors appears to account for Cyproheptadine\'s antiemetic effects, although the exact mechanism is unknown. Cipractine also competes with serotonin at receptor sites in smooth muscle in the intestines and other locations. Antagonism of serotonin on the appetite center of the hypothalamus may account for Cyproheptadine\'s ability to stimulate appetite. Cipractine also has been used to counter vascular headaches, which many believe are caused by changes in serotonin activity, however it is unclear how Cipractine exerts a beneficial effect on this condition.
