The Effect of Chlorpheniramine on Asthma
Abstract:Patients with stable asthma can tolerate antihistamines without any significant deleterious effects both on a short- and a long-term basis. In addition, patients with steroid-dependent asthma appear to tolerate antihistamines without any significant deleterious effects. Therefore, oral chlorpheniramine does not appear to have ill effects on patients with asthma. Warning labels required by the FDA for antihistamine use in asthmatics are unnecessary.
