Millions people worldwide catch a cold every year. Although there are no pharmaceutical remedies, which are approved by clinical studies as capable of curing it, much money is spent for ineffective remedies. 6 964 451 lats were spent for cold medicines in Latvia in 2008 and 3 834 248 lats in the initial 9 months of 2009. One of the least effective components of such preparations is antihistamines, which are commonly included for making the mucosal edema reduced and breathing easier. Although antihistamines are effective in the treatment of allergic rhinitis, it is admitted in many scientific researches that they are not very effective in the treatment of colds.
