Drug Information:
In the U.S. Available Dosage Forms: Therapeutic Class: Diagnostic Agent Histamine is used to help diagnose problems or disease of the stomach. This test determines how much acid your stomach produces. How the stomach test is done: Before histamine is given, the stomach contents are emptied through a tube. Then the dose of histamine, which is based on body weight, is injected under the skin. Five minutes later, the stomach contents are emptied and tested for acidity. This procedure may be repeated several times. An antihistamine medicine may be given before the histamine is injected to prevent a possible unwanted effect. Learn more
