How Effective is Baydal?
Baydal is an anti-histamine. It works by blocking a specific natural substance called histamine in your body. Your body produces this substance during an allergic reaction. Baydal does not prevent hives. It does not prevent or treat an acute allergic reaction, such as anaphylaxis. That’s why if your doctor has prescribed epinephrine injection to you for a severe allergic reaction, make sure always to carry your kit with you. You must not use Baydal in place of your epinephrine.
What Dose Should I Choose?
