The first time the role of histamine and H1-histamine receptors in the mechanisms of ceftriaxone-induced diarrhea in rats. Investigation of the flow of water and electrolytes through the epithelium of the colon performed male rats Wistar (180-250 g), isolated area by perfusion in vivo, for the actions of ceftriaxone (50 mg/kg intramuscularly), histamine (1,8; 3,6; 7,2 mg/ kg, introperytonealno, and 3,6 mg*kg-1 *h-1 intravenously) and loratadine (1,7 mg/kg, per os). Histamine intravenous administration, similar to ceftriaxone, makes a pro-secretory effect on the transport of water and sodium. Blockade of H1-histamine receptors loratadine prevents clinical signs ceftriaxone-induced diarrhea that accompanied the restoration of total water flow indicators and potassium through the epithelium of the colon of rats. Loratadine can be recommended for the prevention of diarrhea antybiotykasotsiyovanoyi not infectious etiology.

Keywords: colon; ceftriaxone; histamine; diarrhea; loratadine.
