What is Allersoothe?
Allersoothe is a sedating antihistamine that works by blocking histamine and other substances from disturbing the brain. It can block histamine from binding to receptors and preventing allergic reactions. It can also stop histamine from binding to the receptors in the vomit centre of the brain and prevent motion sickness, vomiting or pain after surgery. It can be used as a sedative as well.
