Will acrivastine make me drowsy?

Is there a generic version of acrivastine available?

How do antihistamines work?
Antihistamines work by blocking the production of a hormone called histamine in your body.
Histamine is produced when you come into contact with something your body is allergic to, like pollen, dust, or pet dander.
It then causes symptoms designed to remove the allergen from your system, like sneezing, a runny nose, watery eyes, and itching.
By blocking histamine, antihistamines help to prevent allergy symptoms by going right to their source.
