What is Brompheniramine

Brompheniramine is a sedating antihistamine (H1-blocker) of the propylamine class.

Brompheniramine has a strong antihistaminic effect, moderate anticholinergic effect, and no antiemetic effect.

Brompheniramine is used in the treatment of allergic conjunctivitis and rhinitis, angioedema, pruritus, urticaria and other allergic or histamine-mediated reactions.

Brompheniramine was initially marketed for use before 1962 and prior to the modern FDA drug-approval process requiring demonstration of safety and efficacy. A parenteral formulation was previously commercially available, but is no longer marketed.
