Allegra Overview

Fexofenadine, sold under the trade name Allegra among others[3] is an antihistamine pharmaceutical drug used in the treatment of allergy symptoms, such as hay fever, nasal congestion, and urticaria.[4] Therapeutically, fexofenadine is a selective peripheral H1-blocker. Fexofenadine is classified as a second-generation antihistamine because it is less able to pass the blood-brain barrier and cause sedation, compared to first-generation antihistamines.[5][6] It has also been called a third-gene...

Does anyone have experience taking more than 180 mg. Allegra daily?
11 Replies RSS
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 extended-release tablets

fexofenadine HCI 160mg/p pseudoephedrine HCI 120mg ## Can you cut an Allegra 12 hour extended release tablet in half? I took one the last 2 mornings and had trouble sleeping both nights. ## by cutting the 12 hr. in half would it lessen the nervousness side effect? ## No, it is not safe to cut, break or crush any time released medication, because it may cause you to get too much of the medication at once. You can learn more Fexofenadine details here and you can learn more Pseudoephedrine details here. If you are having trouble sleeping, it is most likely due to the Pseudoephedrine that's in Allegra-D, it can cause that and the nervousness in some people. Thus, you may be better off switching to the regular Allegra that doesn't contain it. Are there any questions or comments? ## H...

How long can I take Allegra for?
1 Reply RSS
My allergies don't act up every day. I would like to know if I can take Allegra year round or do you only take it when your allergies flare up? ## It can be taken either way, unless your doctor has said otherwise. I have periods of time I take it daily, when I'm having a bad allergy flare due to pollen and such, then periods of time I don't, such as in the winter, when I don't need it every day. The FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, and dry mouth. Is there anything else I can help with?

Generic Allegra D 12 or 24 HR Availability
Post a Reply
I am having a hard time finding the generic equivalent of Allegra D either 12 or 24 HR at any pharmacy in Wisconsin. Is there some kind of recall or something? Unfortunately I can't try the other generics due to a dairy allergy and most other types have dairy in them.

I have a capsule that is dark purple with a white band in the middle. Each end of the capsule has "AG" on it. I can't find anything on the internet that matches this description. ## I have the same pills that match your description and I believe they are the Allegra Allergy 24 hr gel caps. See the pic of the box for more detail on RiteAid's website. Hope this helps. ## Thank you! I take a lot of pills and this is new to me. I couldn't figure out what it was. ## Hello, Just wanted to confirm for other readers here that based on the product packaging, Allegra Allergy 24hr Gelcaps are purple capsules with what appears to be a white/silver band in the center. [From an online image vantage point of the box, you can't really tell if it bears the markings "AG"; ...

oblong peach pill with Script -R- on each side
1 Reply RSS
I have a large, oblong, peach or beige colored pill that was on the kitchen table this morning. Neither my husband nor I recognize it. We're in an RV. Think it may have fallen out of our medicine bag which holds prescription as well as OTC medication. ## Hello, Judeela! How are you? That imprint is rather vague, so I can't be 100% sure… Do either of you take Allegra/Fexofenadine for allergies? I've seen some tablets of it that kind of resemble what you describe, but since it's available over the counter, not all of them are listed in the medication databases. The FDA lists its typical side effects as including nausea, dizziness, dry mouth and headache.
