Also referred to as Bromodiphenhydramine, Ambenyl is an antihistamine categorized in the ethanolamine class. These types of histamines produce marked sedation and have antimuscarinic activity in patients. It treats usual allergic symptoms as well as nausea, cough, vertigo associated with motion illness, and vomiting.
In addition, Ambenyl is used commonly in treatment of extrapyramidal symptoms induced by drugs as well as treating some cases of Parkinson’s disease. Instead of preventing histamine release, like drugs such as nedocromil and cromyl, Ambenyl takes a different action, combining with free histamines to bind at HA-receptor sites.
