Allergic rhinitis or conjunctivitis Ketotifen Fumarate Asthafen

Uses
Asthafen (Ketotifen Fumarate) is an antihistamine medicine which also acts as a mast cell stabilizer. It is used to treat the symptoms of allergies, including rhinitis and allergic conjunctivitis. The body produces a nitrogenous compound called histamine, which is known to trigger the inflammatory response that occurs in allergies, as part of the body's immune system reaction to allergens or other irritants. When released, the histamine attaches to the H1 receptors, and this caused the inflammatory response.

Rhinitis (runny nose) can occur due to the nasal mucous membranes becoming inflamed, or if the eyes are affected, conjunctivitis is possible, as a result of mucous membrane inflammation in the eyes. By non-competitively blocking the H1 histamine receptors and also stopping the release of histamine, this medicine helps to prevent the inflammatory response associated with allergies, thereby helping relieve symptoms of the conditions listed above. Some patients with asthma have also been given it for the prevention of symptoms.
