For Veterinary Use
Each 1 ml contains:
Tripelennamine HCl: 20 mg (equivalent to 17.5 mg Tripelennamine base).
Tripelennamine HCl is an ethylenediamine-derivative antihistamine (H1 receptor antagonist).
Antihistamine (H1 receptor antagonist) competitively inhibits histamine at H1 receptor sites.
It does not inactivate or prevent the release of histamine.
It prevents the histamine action on the cell.
Also Tripelennamine has a moderate stimulant activity and minimal anti-cholinergic activity.
Antihistaminics are used to reduce or help prevent histamine mediated adverse effects. Tripelennamine has been used as CNS stimulant in “Downer cows” when administered slow IV.
