sodium has also been shown to be of potential use in reducing high-dose inhaled steroid use.
Finally, 8 RCTs compared topical mast cell stabilizers (sodium cromoglycate, lodoxamide, and nedocromil
sodium) with levocabastine, a topical antihistamine.

Mast cell stabilizers (lodoxamide, nedocromil
and pemirolast) are efficient in treatment of seasonal allergic rhinitis, but improvement of the symptoms takes a few days to a few weeks (61,62).
While cromoglycate and nedocromil
are characterised as "mast cell stabilisers", preventing histamine release, this is not the mechanism of action of these drugs in asthma treatment.
The participants (5 - 13 years old) were randomly assigned to receive 400 [micro]g of budesonide, 16 mg nedocromil
or placebo daily for 4 - 6 years.
In that previous study, the subjects -- then between the ages of 5 and 13 years -- had been randomly assigned to receive a steroid medication called budesonide, a non-steroid medication called nedocromil
or a placebo pill for 4 to 6 years.
They were divided into three groups: one received twice-daily budesonide, an inhaled corticosteroid medication; a second group received nedocromil
, an inhaled non-steroid medication; and a third group received a placebo.
Eye drops containing drugs such as sodium cromoglicate and nedocromil
sodium help prevent cells becoming sensitised and are used to reduce the eye symptoms of hayfever such as redness, itching and watering.
22) In a study administered by the Nedocromil
Sodium Quality of Life Study Group, (23) it was found that the SIP failed to detect an improvement in health, but found a clinically significant improvement in health using the SGRQ.
