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...

This is from my pharacist and is suppose to be generic of Allegra 60mg. Worried it was a mistake.Nomally lt peach shade. Can you help me identify. ## Hello, Cathy! How are you? This tablet is manufactured by Mylan Pharmaceuticals and they list it as containing 60mgs of Fexofenadine. The colors of medications don't actually mean anything, that's entirely up to the whit and whim of the manufacturer and your pharmacy may switch which generic they carry, at any given time, depending on who was offering the cheapest price, at the time they needed to restock their supply. The FDA classifies this medication as an antihistamine and lists the typical side effects as possibly including dizziness, drowsiness and dry mouth. Is there anything else I can help with?

can i eat antacid along with allegra 120
1 Reply RSS
I have been eating allegra 120 since last 1 month. my question is can i eat Tritrab-DSR (rabprazole) antacid. ## Hi Rucha, According to, there are no drug interactions listed between Allegra and Rabeprazole. Based off this information alone, I don't see any reason why you wouldn't be able take these two meds together. The only thing I'm weary of when it comes to using more than 1 medication at a time is that in the event of any side effects (god forbid), it may be difficult to determine which medication is the underlying cause. At any rate, please post back if there's anything else I can help with!

Post a Reply
I had been recommended Clavam 600 with Allegra 120 for 7 days for treating my 3 months old Sinusitis. So far after completion of course not much improvement is noticed. What should be done as no medicine especially antibiotics seem to be working on my sinus infection ?

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
1 Reply RSS
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?

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..

allegra d The Tan side
2 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...
