What is Desloratadine (generic Clarinex) and what are its uses ?

Clarinex (Desloratadine) is an antihistamine.

Clarinex relieves the symptoms of hay fever (sneezing, runny nose, and itchy, watery eyes), and may help treat hives and associated itching of the skin.

How does Desloratadine (generic Clarinex) Works (Mechanism) ?

Clarinex tablets contain the active ingredient desloratadine, which is a non-sedating antihistamine. Clarinex works by preventing the actions of histamine.

Histamine is a substance produced by the body as part of its defense mechanisms. Clarinexis stored in cells called mast cells, in almost all tissues of the body. When the body reacts to a foreign substance (known as an allergen, e.g. flower pollen, dust mites), the mast cells stimulated by the allergen release their stores of histamine.

The released histamine then binds to its receptors (H-1 receptors), causing a chain reaction that results in allergic symptoms. Clarinex causes an increase in blood flow to the area of the allergy, and the release of other chemicals that add to the allergic response.

All this results in the symptoms of an allergic reaction. In hayfever and other nasal allergies (allergic rhinitis), histamine causes inflammation of the nose, eyes, skin or airways and results in itchy watery eyes, a runny nose, and sneezing and nasal congestion.

Clarinex works by blocking histamine receptors. It does not prevent the actual release of histamine from mast cells, but prevents it binding to its receptors. This in turn prevents the release of other allergy chemicals and increased blood supply to the area, and provides relief from the typical symptoms of nasal allergies such as hayfever.

Clarinex can also be used to relieve the symptoms of a condition called chronic idiopathic urticaria. This is a chronic itchy rash, similar to nettle rash, but with no apparent cause. Blocking the actions of histamine relieves the itching and reduces the rash associated with this condition.

Clarinex is called a non-sedating antihistamine as it does not enter the brain and is therefore unlikely to cause drowsiness. However, very rarely some people may experience drowsiness.
