What is Emadine?

Emedastine (trade name Emadine) is a second generation antihistamine used in eye drops to treat allergic conjunctivitis. It acts as a H1 receptor antagonist. It works by blocking certain natural substances, histamines that cause allergic symptoms. It is used in form of the difumarate. The formation of emedastine difumarate is a white, crystalline, water-soluble fine powder. Emedasine is applied as an eye drop with 2 times a day. When the patients with allergic conjunctivitis were treated with 0.05% emedastin difumarate ophthalmic solution for six weeks, the signs and symptoms such as redness, itching and swelling of the eyes were relieved. Emedastine appears to be devoid of effects on adrenergic, dopaminergic and serotonin receptors. This drug was developed by alcon which is global medical company specializing in eye care products.
