An Antihistamine is a pharmaceutical drug.

Description (Specifications)[edit]

Antihistamines, first created at TL-6, are drugs or other compounds that inhibit the physiological effects of allergens on the body. Antihistamines have drawbacks: they may not be effective against specific allergens within an environment, and they may cause drowsiness, which can present serious hazards if operating vehicles or heavy equipment. Antihistamines have a cost of Cr50 per dose. They are typically taken once per day or immediately upon exposure to allergens.

History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

Antihistamines may reduce the hazards presented by certain types of Tainted Atmospheres.

In the case of exposure to a deadly allergen, an Autojector may be used to administer a powerful dose of adrenaline.
