Antihistamines are drugs used against the immune system,
usually to treat a case where the immune system is over-reacting.
These drugs act against "histamines" which are substances produced by the body
to cause an immune response.
Antihistamines are not the same as immunosuppressants.
Immunosuppressants are usually a longer-lasting and more general form of
immune suppressing medication, whereas antihistamines tend to be used short-term
against acute immune responses.
