Desloratadine has a long action time, a stronger antihistamine effect than other drugs of the same kind, a better antiallergic effect, selective cholinolytic activity, difficulty in passing through the blood-brain barrier, no central sedation and good patient compliance [36]; for these reasons, it has been widely used in the clinic as a first-line drug and a conventional antihistamine treatment.
