Mechanism of action
Glencet - Cetirizine enantiomer, a competitive histamine antagonist, blocks the H1-histamine receptors, the affinity for which is 2 times higher than that of cetirizine. It affects the histamine-dependent stage of allergic reactions, reduces the migration of eosinophils, vascular permeability, limits the release of inflammatory mediators. It prevents the development and facilitates the course of allergic reactions, has anti-exudative, antipruritic effect, practically does not have anticholinergic and antiserotonin action. In therapeutic doses, the sedative effect is very weak. The action begins 12 minutes after administration of a single dose in 50% of patients, after 1 h in 95% and lasts for 24 hours.
