antihistamine therapy

Antihistamine therapy involves taking H1 (diphenhydramine, cetirizine, loratadine) and H2 (ranitidine, famotidine) receptor antagonists. Early observational studies and anecdotal reports show promising results, but the exact mechamism of action is unknown.

antihistamine therapy treats fatigue, headache, brain fog, muscle pain, joint pain, chest pain, tinnitus, and POTS associated with long COVID.
