Allergy has not yet been studied enough to say exactly how to deal with it, and why it occurs. As a result, the demand for drugs, allowing to relieve its symptoms, will not soon fall. Consequently, more and more new names will continue to appear, increasingly confusing consumers who are not familiar with them. For example, from what helps "Diazolin", and what is its assessment in comparison with "Suprastin"? Is it possible to make a choice between these drugs, or is it better to find something different from them?
Which antihistamine drug to choose?
The doctor should give the answer to this question, and it is unreasonable to choose a sos-tool on its own, as well as replace the recommended one with a randomly found analogue. In particular, all the medicines listed below are united by the fact that they belong to the group of first-generation antihistamines, but they differ in their active ingredients, which allows the specialist to choose the softest and safest option, taking into account all the features of the active substance.
"Suprastin"among all anti-allergy drugs has the greatest fame. The drug is available in the form of tablets, working with chloropyramine. The proportion of the active substance per 1 tablet is 25 mg. There is also a solution for injection, which allows you to achieve a more rapid effect: in 1 ml of liquid 20 mg of active substance. General pharmacodynamics - antiemetic, antispasmodic, antipruritic, as well as blocking choline activity. The result from taking the pill is observed already after 15 minutes, the maximum concentration Chloropyramine radio fixed after 60 min., and the exposure time was 6 hours. "Suprastin" forbidden during pregnancy and breastfeeding, neonatal, and bronchial asthma.
"Diazolin"has less fame and works due to mebhydroline and can have an effect on the bronchopulmonary system, as a result of which it is allowed (and even recommended) to relieve spasms in bronchial asthma. The main scope of the drug is skin rash and itching, food and / or drug allergies, inflammation eye mucosa. The active component "Diazolin" has a weak effect on the receptors of the stomach, and hydrochloric acid in its composition erodes the mucous membrane, as a result of which the drug is prohibited in people with ulcers, hyperplasia The main gland, as well as glaucoma, tachycardia and arrhythmia, epileptic seizures, pyloric stenosis. In addition, "Diazolin" is unacceptable in therapy in pregnant and lactating women.
"Tavegil"- the closest analogue of" Diazolin ", works on clemastine, whose share per 1 tablet is 1 mg. The drug has established itself as a high-quality and gentle remedy against allergies in young children. At the same time, its duration is higher than that already mentioned" Suprastin "- approximately 12 hours. However, the maximum concentration of the active substance is observed only after 3-4 hours. Tavegil is not recommended for use in children under one year, as well as during pregnancy and breastfeeding. The drug cannot be combined with MAO inhibitors, It is undesirable to receive at asthmatics.
"Diphenhydramine"often called analogue" Suprastin ", whose effectiveness is due to the action of diphenhydramine. The drug is available both in tablets and in injection solution format. The main property of Dimedrol is sedative: it has a strong effect on the nervous system, suppressing the activity of the autonomic ganglia and endings, and also helps to relieve spasms of smooth muscles.It can be used not only for allergies, but also during toxicosis, as well as for motion sickness and ulcers of the gastrointestinal tract. s of the digestive tract, as well as the cardiovascular system, but the drug is much safer than the above.
It should also be noted that all drugs aimed at inhibition of H1 receptors are incompatible with alcohol and penetrate the blood-brain barrier. Thereby, a sedative effect on the nervous system occurs, expressed in the resulting drowsiness, decrease in concentration, decrease in visual acuity and speed of reactions.
"Diazolin" and "Suprastin": reviews of patients and specialists
If one diligently examines the opinion of ordinary consumers expressed in relation to the most well-known drugs - "Diazolin" and "Suprastin" - one can notice that attention is paid to them almost equally, and the overall assessment is also almost the same, although "Diazolin" is insignificant, but leads. This is explained by more rare cases of CNS depression than in the case of Suprastin, but this nuance is subjective.
Polina, 26 years old: "Suprastin" I have been drinking for the past 6 years, but I accept situationally - I never had to take a course. This usually occurs during seasonal exacerbation (summer): I take 1-2 tablets per day, for 2-3 days. It is impossible to do this longer, because drowsiness, appearing in the process of reception, takes all chances for a full life. If vacation at this time, is not terrible yet, but it is impossible to be in this state on a working day. But the drug justifies its side effect, because during the night it removes absolutely all allergic symptoms: even edema, even rash.
Tatyana, 19 years old: As an allergy with experience, I always carry with me the packaging of "Diazolin". I tried a lot of antihistamines, but stopped, as a result, on it, although I will not name the best. I’ll say right away that this is not an instant reaction drug: so that my eyes no longer itch, I have swelling from them, usually I wait 3-4 hours, and after that same period of time dreadful sleepiness comes on. The effect is also short, only 5-6 hours.
Reviews of "Diazolin" and "Suprastin" by medical specialists are quite neutral, and, based on them, it is impossible to choose a more effective drug. Doctors say that with full adherence to instructions, side reactions of the body are extremely rare, and the effectiveness of each medication is absolutely the same.
What is better "Diazolin" or "Suprastin"?
It is difficult to make an unequivocal choice between "Diazolin" and "Suprastin" because they are not full substitutes for each other, and their active components have similar, but not identical fields of activity. Their common group has in common - antihistamines, as well as the main list of indications and contraindications. Even according to the opinions of specialists and patients, the medications give the same side effects and have a similar principle of action: both do not act instantly, both are sufficiently effective, and both are in the category of budget drugs. But:
- "Suprastin" affects the body for 3-4 hours longer, which allows to alleviate the condition for a longer period of time;
- "Diazolin" is much less likely to contribute to drowsiness and loss of concentration, as a result of which it is more convenient to use it during work;
At the same time, it is important to understand that all these nuances are subjective, and Diazolin affects someone much worse, and Suprastin does not help at all. Therefore, it is possible to decide which of the drugs is worthy of attention, and which is not, only after consulting a doctor and studying a particular organism for its compatibility with the active components of each of the medicines.
