Abstract

The results of a multicentre double-blind trial are reported in which α-[4-(1,1-dimethylethyl)phenyl]-4-(hydroxydiphenylmethyl)-1-piperidinebut anol (terfenadine, RMI 9918, Triludan®, Teldane®, resp.) and dexchlorpheniramine were compared with placebo in the treatment of allergic rhinitis. Terfenadine and dexchlorpheniramine were found to be equally effective; but terfenadine produced less drowsiness and was effective in a twice daily dosage.
