Pharmacology/Description

Pheniramine is an antihistamine used to treat allergic conditions such as hay fever or urticaria. It is generally sold in combination with other medications, rather than as a stand-alone drug. Allergies are caused by an excessive type 1 hypersensitivity response of the body to allergens, mediated by inappropriate histamine signaling. By inhibiting the binding of histamine, antihistamines decrease the normal histamine response from cells, consequently decreasing allergic symptoms.

Indication

Itching of unknown genesis and of various localizations, eczema, dermatitis, urticaria, skin oedema, insect bites, photodermatitis, rhinitis, tail eczema in horse, stomatitis, toxic hoof corns and inflammation of the hooves of cattle, serum shock, paresis during pregnancy, puerperal toxemia and secondary retention, pulmonary oedema in cattle, pulmonary emphysema in horse, toxic hypopepsia etc. The efficacy of Alarvet has also been demonstrated in drug allergies, anaphylactic shock, laminitis, bloat in ruminants due to histamine atony of rumen and also in the treatment of acute septic metritis in cow in conjunction with antibacterial therapy.

The dosage should be adjusted individually. If possible small doses are given first because it has often been shown that antiallergic drugs are effective in comparatively small dosage.
