CAS Code


Characteristics of the substance Loratadine

White or off-white powder. Insoluble in water, very soluble in acetone, alcohol, chloroform.


Pharmacological action - antiallergic, antihistamine, antipruritic, antiexudative.

Selectively blocks H1-histamine receptors and prevents the action of histamine on smooth muscles and blood vessels, reduces the permeability of capillaries, inhibits exudation, reduces itching and erythema. Prevents development and facilitates the course of allergic reactions. The effect develops in 1-3 hours, reaches a maximum after 8-12 hours and persists for at least 24 hours. It has a weak bronchodilating activity. With a 28-day application of the development of tolerance is not observed. Does not affect the central nervous system (loratadine and its metabolites do not penetrate the BBB) and the QT interval on the ECG.

In animal experiments, there was no mutagenic effect, the effect on fertility of female and male rats. At a dose of 25 mg / kg (rat) and 40 mg / kg (mouse), it induces microsomal liver enzymes. With prolonged studies in mice (40 mg / kg) and rats (10 mg / kg and 25 mg / kg), cases of hepatocellular tumors have been reported.

After oral administration, it is rapidly absorbed. Cmax in the blood is created after 1.3 hours, the active metabolite (descarbonethoxyloratadine) after 2.5 hours. The intake of food has no significant effect on the pharmacokinetics (AUC of loratadine can be increased by 40%, and its active metabolite by 15%), but Slows the time to reach Cmax for 1 hour (it is recommended to take the drug before meals). At a plasma concentration of 2.5-100 ng / ml, binding to proteins is 97% (active metabolite 73-77% at a level of 0.5-100 ng / ml). Equilibrium concentrations of loratadine and its active metabolite in plasma are reached by day 5. Intensively biotransformed in the liver by the cytochrome P450 system (mainly through CYP3A4 and to a lesser extent - CYP2D6) to form the active metabolite - descarbotoxytoloratadine. Within 24 hours, 27% of the total dose is excreted in the urine in the form of hydroxylated metabolites and / or conjugates. After 10 days about 80% in the form of metabolites are excreted equally in urine (40%) and feces (40%). T1 / 2 loratadine - 3 - 20 hours (an average of 8.4 hours), the active metabolite - 8.8 to 92 hours (an average of 28 hours). The volume of loratadine distribution is 119 l / kg, Cl is 142-202 ml / min / kg. Easily penetrates into breast milk and creates concentrations equivalent to the level in the plasma. After taking a dose of 40 mg, about 0.03% is excreted in the mother's milk for 48 hours. In patients with chronic renal failure (Cl creatinine <30 mL / min), the AUC and Cmax of loratadine and its active metabolite increase (73% on average and 120%, respectively), and the average value of T1 / 2 does not change and is 7.6 hours for loratadine and 23.9 h for descabroxetoxyloratadine. Conducting hemodialysis in patients with chronic renal failure does not affect the pharmacokinetics of loratadine and its active metabolite. With alcoholic liver damage, Cmax plasma and AUC of loratadine are doubled, and descaboetoxyloratadine does not change, T1 / 2 loratadine is 24 h and its active metabolite is 37 h. In elderly patients, the AUC and Cmax values of loratadine and descarboetoxyloratadine are increased by 50%, while T1 / 2 loratadine and its active metabolite is 18.2 (6.7-37 h) and 17.5 h (11-38 h), respectively.

Erythromycin and ketoconazole (CYP3A4 inhibitors), cimetidine (inhibitor CYP3A4 and CYP2D6) increase the concentration of loratadine and its active metabolite in the blood. Reduces the level of erythromycin in the plasma by (15%). Does not potentiate the effect of alcohol on the central nervous system.


Symptoms: headache, drowsiness, tachycardia. In children weighing less than 30 kg with the intake of syrup in a dose exceeding 10 mg, extrapyramidal disorders, palpitations were noted.
