Setastine (Loderix) is an antihistamine used to treat allergies and rhinitis.[1][2]



Setastine acts as a highly selective H1 receptor antagonist.[3] It has no anticholinergic, antiadrenergic, or antiserotonergic effects.


Setastine penetrates the blood-brain-barrier only weakly, hence, it is not sedating or is only mildly so.[3]
