Currently the only FDA-approved histamine antagonist medications block the effects of histamine at H1 or H2 receptor sites. Controlled studies were performed to measure the degree and the manner in which performance abilities of 12 females were affected by a nonprescription antihistamine compound, in two simulated industrial work tasks, one requiring vigilance and the other requiring sensory motor function.
