 Asthma and antihistamines

I have asthma.  I believe the problem with antihistimines is that they
constrict the airways, which is exactly what you don't want.  Look for
preparations that contain DECONGESTANTS but no antihistimines; these will
not contain the warning regarding asthma.  Also, your wife should ask
her doctor -- there are antihistimine preparations, prescription meds,
that are indicated as being fine for asthmatics.
