Does an antihistamine help IC? If so how?

In brief: IC

I commonly use anti histamine for my IC patients.
Exciting histamine receptors in the bladder can stimulate inflammation. Similar responses are seen in sinus and stomach. The antihistamine therefore blocks one possible arm of the inflammatory cycle.
