What is Clistin?
Carbinoxamine (Clistin, Palgic, Rondec, Rhinopront) is a antihistamine and anticholinergic agent. It was first launched in the United States by the McNeil Corporation under the brand name Clistin. It is now available under the brand name Palgic as 4 mg tablets or 4 mg/5 mL liquid. It is approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) (specifically at the 4 mg dose/strength) for hay fever (a.k.a. allergic rhinitis, SAR and PAR); vasomotor rhinitis; mild urticaria; angioedema, dermatographism and allergic conjunctivitis. Carbinoxamine is a histamine antagonist, specifically an H1-antagonist. The maleic acid acid salt of the levorotatory isomer is sold as the prescription drug rotoxamine.
