Histamines stimulate secretion of pepsin and hydrochloric acid in the stomach and excess of it can lead to acidity. They are also responsible for nasal congestion associated with common cold and allergic response to pollen.A person having an allergic problem takes ‘Brompheniramine’ which is an antihistamine.
Which of the following is correct about level of secretion of hydrochloric acid in the stomach of the person after consuming ‘Brompheniramine’?
Both antiallergic and antacid are antihistamines but they work on different receptors. ‘Brompheniramine’ is antiallergic drug but it is not an antacid. Hence it will not affect level of secretion of hydrochloric acid in the stomach of the person.
