Cyproheptadine hydrochloride anhydrous is a first-generation antihistamine with additional anticholinergic, antiserotonergic, and local anesthetic properties. It is indicted for the treatment of perennial and seasonal allergic rhinitis; vasomotor rhinitis; allergic conjunctivitis due to inhalant allergens and foods; mild, uncomplicated allergic skin manifestations of urticaria and angioedema. As therapy for anaphylactic reactions adjunctive to epinephrine and other standard measures after the acute manifestations have been controlled. MAO inhibitors prolong and intensify the anticholinergic effects of antihistamines. Antihistamines may have additive effects with alcohol and other CNS depressants, e.g., hypnotics, sedatives, tranquilizers, antianxiety agents. Common adverse effects are: sedation, sleepiness (often transient), dizziness, disturbed coordination, restlessness, excitation.

Route of Administration: Oral
Cytotoxic effect of Cyproheptadine (Glutodine) on urothelial cancer cells was determined in SV-HUC1, TSGH 8301, BFTC 905, BFTC 909, J82, 5637 cell lined. Cells were treated with 25-- 150 mkM of Cyproheptadine for 24 h. Apoptosis analysis was performed using the Annexin V-FITC Apoptosis Detection Kit. Treatment with high dose Cyproheptadine (≥100 mkM) for 24 h induced significant cytotoxicity toward all bladder cancer cells, 50 mkM of Cyproheptadine only induced cytotoxicity in cancer cell lines but not in the immortalized normal urothelial SV-HUC1 cells
