The review deals with the analysis of the mechanism of etiopathogenesis of acute respiratory infections in allergic patients. Due to complex influence on components of the inflammatory process, the necessity of inclusion of 2nd generation antihistamines in the scheme of treatment of such patients is justified. Main advantages of 2nd generation antihistamines compared to their predecessors are analyzed.
