Allegra Overview

Fexofenadine (trade names Allegra, Fexidine, Telfast, Fastofen, Tilfur, Vifas, Telfexo, Allerfexo) is an antihistamine pharmaceutical drug used in the treatment of allergy symptoms, such as hay fever, nasal congestion, and urticaria.[3] It is often said to be a third-generation antihistamine, which means that its effect are limited to the periphery, that is, outside the brain and spinal cord, which is where most antihistamines mediate their sedating effects, hence fexofenadine produces minima...

ebast m and allegra 120mg
im using allegra tablet for my allergy condition. some days before i had chest infection nd i went to a diffrent doctor . i told him im an allergy patient. along with the antibiotics for chest infection he prescribed ebast m tablets. i know ebast m tablets are also used for allergic conditions. i followed his medicine for 10 days. now ma chest infection is gone. but allergy is still there. can i continue my old medicine allergra 120? does using both the medicines which are meant for the same disease, one after the other cause any problems? ??! ## Hello, Tinku! How are you? It doesn't make much sense to take 2 medications to treat the same problem, in this case, especially if the one isn't working for you. It would probably be better to just go back to taking your Allegra, unless...

what is the best indoor allergy pill for runny nose and red weepy eyes
Loratidine no longer works for me and my nose is always running. I'm allergic to dust and mold. occasionally I get sinus headaches but not all the time. ## Hello, Jeanne! How are you? Have you ever tried Allegra/Fexofenadine? It's very similar and also available over the counter. However, only your doctor can say wether or not it is safe for you. Side effects may include dizziness, drowsiness and dry mouth. ## Ask your doctor about Singulair, it is a prescription/nondrowsy allergy medication. Since your allergic response "cells" are most productive in the early morning hours, like midnight through 3 am,, it is best to take Singulair at 8 pm so the drug peaks at that time. Talk to your doctor, I've seen amazing results.

Does anyone have experience taking more than 180 mg. Allegra daily?
I am wondering if anyone has taken more than 180 mg. of Allegra daily and lived to tell about it! Just kidding about that last part. I have a particularly bad case of post nasal drip and I DO get some relief from the 180. However, I am considering trying half a tab (90 mg.) at night to get more relief. I KNOW what the recommendation is...I am just wondering. Has anyone tried it? ## Actually, if you're currently taking that much and still have post-nasal drip, then it's most likely time to try something else, rather than more of the Allegra. What other allergy medications have you tried? There are others on the market, some are available over the counter and some by prescription. Have you talked to your doctor about it? What are you allergic to? ## When it comes to prescription m...

allegra d 12 HOUR
CAN THE MAIN INGREDIENTS BE SEPARATED ## Hi MIZTAZ, To my understanding, the active ingredients in Allegra D 12hr are not intended to be tampered with or separated. If you just want Fexofenadine on its own, normal Allegra may be what it is you're looking for. Pseudoephedrine is also available on its own, and is marketed under the brand name Sudafed/12 hr. Both options should be available OTC, but you may have to ask your pharmacist to get it for you if it's behind one of those locked glass doors. I hope this helps to answer your question!

oblong tan with specks number ending 012d
Only have half of pill its oblong but flat top n bottom last number's are 012D 1/2 the pill is aprox. 1/2 inch its the color of spicy brown mustered. If that helps ## Hi jon, Based on the description provided, the closest match I'm finding is a half white/half tan oblong shaped pill, marked with "06/012D" on one side and blank on the other. This particular tablet is identified as Allegra-D (12 hour), containing: fexofenadine 60mg + pseudoephedrine 120mg - a combination commonly used to treat hay fever. NOTE: the tan side does appear to resemble mustard, in that it also has little brown freckles/specks throughout that side of the pill. It is manufactured by Sanofi-Aventis, has a National Drug Code of 00088-1090, and is about 19mm in size. I hope this helps! Please post ba...

oval orange pill with score on one side
I found an oval, orange/pink pill, scored on one side with a cursive/fancy "M" on one side. Can anyone identify this pill for me? Thank you! ## Hello, Based on the description provided, I'm not finding any specific tablets listed with that imprint. However I did come across a potential match for the manufacturer. Sanofi-Aventis Pharmaceuticals has what appears to be a cursive "M" on one side of their pill. I could be wrong in assuming that it's an M, but it does look that way. If you were to run a search on google images for "E 018 Pill Allegra" you would likely come across a photo of the logo that I'm referring to. Please post back and let me know if you think this logo fits your description of the cursive/fancy "M"? I hope this helps! ## I t...
