Does anyone have experience taking more than 180 mg of 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 me...

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?

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?
