How Does the Drug Work?

Epinastine ophthalmic solution belongs to a group of allergy medications known as antihistamines. Specifically, it is an H1 receptor antagonist. This means that it blocks a specific type of histamine receptor in the body (known as H1 receptors). In addition to blocking histamine receptors, epinastine ophthalmic solution also seems to decrease the release of histamine from certain cells in the body. Since the symptoms of allergic reactions are partly caused by histamine, epinastine ophthalmic solution can help prevent or relieve allergy symptoms.
