Allegra Overview

Fexofenadine (trade names Allegra, Fexidine, Telfast, Fastofen, Tilfur, Vifas, Telfexo, Allerfexo, Flexofen) is an antihistamine pharmaceutical drug used in the treatment of allergy symptoms, such as hay fever, nasal congestion, and urticaria.[3] 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.[4] [5] It has also been called a third-generation antihistamine, ...

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.

I have sneezing problem which is from last 2 years. I have gone from allergists to chest specialist Doctors.. All I got was nasal spray and alegra. Now the condition is I have to take 1 tablet daily to avoid sneezing. If I miss the tablet one day I wil have sneezes all the way. So continuing with alegra is safe for me. I don't have any other option other than continuing it. Please help me.. ## Have you tried yoga? Look for videos on youtube for yoga regarding your problem.

allegra d The Tan side
3 Replies RSS
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...

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...

I have chronic hives and take tachrilomus. Would it be safe to take redotex every other day in half a dose? ## Hello, Annie! How are you? No, I can't tell anyone that it is safe to take Redotex in any amount. The FDA has found serious reasons to question its safety. If you need to lose weight, it would be best and safest to talk to your doctor about what might work for you. Is there anything else I can help with? ## I have chronic hives as well (dermatographism) I take 2 Allegra a day and redotex, no side effects. I lose weight and hives under control
