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...

Fexofenadine 60 mg
Why is it so hard to find 60 mg fexofenadine on shelves anywhere. The only thing I can find generic or otherwise is 180 mg, 24 hour. ## Hello, SJW! How are you? I'm sorry about the problem that you're having. I'm sorry, but I'm not exactly sure why you can't find it, since it is an over the counter product, shortages are not required to be reported. Have you tried asking your pharmacist? They may know more. This is a generic for Allegra, which is used to treat allergies and which may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, dry mouth and drowsiness. It could even be that the 60mg dosage just doesn't sell as much as the other, so it may not be viable for most stores to keep it in stock.

which side of the pill is pseudoephedrine
I am very confused which side of the pill could be sudafedrine the tan are the white ## Hello, Robert! How are you? Neither one is just the Pseudoephedrine, the ingredients are equally dispersed throughout the entire tablet. The different colors is just something that manufactured decided to do to emphasize the ingredients and how their medication is supposed to work. Side effects to Allegra-D may include nausea, dizziness, headache, irritability and elevated blood pressure. This medication is used to treat allergy symptoms. Is there anything else I can help with?

blue pill m753
Is this really generic for 60 mg of allegra. Pill is usually peach. ## Hello, Jan! How are you? Yes, this contains 60mgs of Fexofenadine, which is the generic for Allegra. The color doesn't actually mean anything, that is entirely up to the whit and whim of the manufacturer. Side effects to this medication may include nausea, dizziness, dry mouth and drowsiness. Is there anything else I can help with?

allegra d The Tan side
I have used Allegra D for many years when my allergies act up, but I have noticed that my body is not breaking down or digesting the tan side of the pill. To be exact the pill comes out just as it goes in (minus the white side). I have told my Dr. this but he has no idea why. When I use Allegra D it does seem to help the fluid build up in my ear, but I would like to know what part of the pill I am not getting and why? ## Hello, Stellie! How are you? You are getting all of the medication. That part of the tablet is time released, so the outside doesn't dissolve, after the medication is released, it is just expelled as waste. It's designed this way so the white part of the tablet releases immediately with a dose of the medications in order to get faster control of your symptoms, t...

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...
