Antihistamine

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

This is kindof a weird question. A while a go I chewed a non-chewable antihistamine. It burnt my throat bad when I tried to swallow it, almost like I was allergic to it. It wasn't meant to be chewed so that might be the problem. I think it was diphenhydramine. Is this normal?

 


I take glutamine powder and theanine for my IBS. (See the posts on my profile for more information.)

Sure is likely. Many tablets that are not chewable have an enteric coating that will dissolve in the stomach to prevent irritation to the throat. If you chewed it because you needed it to act quickly you may want to talk to your pharmacist about a good chewable tablet or liquid.
