  ►  Mechanism of Action :   Sodium cromoglicate is used for the prevention of allergic reactions. Although its precise mode of action remains uncertain, it is believed to act primarily by preventing release of mediators of inflammation from sensitised mast cells through stabilisation of mast-cell membranes. It has no direct antihistamine or anti-inflammatory action
