Scientific Name: Levocabastine
Brand Name: Livostin
Company Owner: Not Available
Mechanism Of Action Levocabastine is a potent, selective histamine H1-receptor antagonist. It works by competing with histamine for H1-receptor sites on effector cells. It thereby prevents, but does not reverse, responses mediated by histamine alone. Levocabastine does not block histamine release but, rather, prevents histamine binding and activity. Levocabastine also binds neurotensin 2 receptors and serves as a neurotensin agonist. This can induce some degree of analgesia.
Description of the Drug: Levocabastine is a selective histamine H1 receptor antagonist indicated for the management of seasonal allergic conjunctivitis symptoms.
