Re: which of these are considered antihistamines?

The only medication on your list that is an antihistamine is Astelin, and it may interfere with the results of the testing.

Typically you're supposed to stop antihistamines 5 days before the testing so you may want to check with the doctor if you've been taking the Astelin to make sure that the tests will be accurate.
