Product Overview

Allegra is a medication containing the active ingredient Fexofenadine. It belongs to a class of antihistamine drugs used to relieve symptoms associated with seasonal allergies, such as sneezing, runny nose, itching, and watery eyes. Unlike older-generation antihistamines, Allegra does not cause drowsiness, making it suitable for daytime use. Available in various formulations, including tablets, capsules, and oral suspension, Allegra provides convenient and effective relief for allergy sufferers.

Uses

Allegra is commonly used to alleviate symptoms of allergic rhinitis, including hay fever and environmental allergies triggered by pollen, dust mites, pet dander, and mold spores. It works by blocking the action of histamine, a chemical released by the body during an allergic reaction, thereby reducing inflammation and alleviating symptoms such as nasal congestion, itching, and sneezing. Additionally, it may be prescribed to manage symptoms of chronic idiopathic urticaria, a condition characterized by recurrent episodes of hives and itching without a known cause.

How to Use

Take Allegra tablets or capsules orally with a full glass of water, with or without food, as directed by your healthcare provider or as indicated on the product label. Do not crush, chew, or break the tablets unless instructed to do so by your doctor. If using the oral suspension, shake the bottle well before each use and measure the prescribed dose using a dosing spoon or syringe provided with the medication. Avoid consuming grapefruit juice or taking aluminum or magnesium-containing antacids within 2 hours of Allegra administration, as they may affect the absorption of the medication.

How it Works

Allegra works by blocking the action of histamine receptors, specifically the H1 receptors, on various cells in the body, including those in the respiratory tract, blood vessels, and skin. Histamine is released in response to allergens and triggers symptoms such as itching, sneezing, and nasal congestion. By inhibiting the effects of histamine, it helps alleviate allergy symptoms and provides relief from discomfort associated with allergic reactions.

Dosage and Administration

The recommended dosage of it may vary depending on the severity of symptoms, age, and individual response to treatment. For adults and children 12 years and older, the usual dose is 60 mg taken twice daily or 180 mg taken once daily. Children aged 6 to 11 years may be prescribed 30 mg twice daily or 60 mg once daily. Consult your doctor for appropriate dosing instructions, especially for children under 6 years of age. Do not exceed the recommended dosage without medical supervision.

Common Side Effects

Common side effects of Allegra may include headache, nausea, dizziness, drowsiness, and dry mouth. These side effects are usually mild and transient, resolving on their own as your body adjusts to the medication. If any of these symptoms persist or worsen, contact your healthcare provider for further evaluation and advice. Rare but serious side effects, such as allergic reactions, irregular heartbeat, or difficulty urinating, require immediate medical attention.

Warnings

Before using Allegra, inform your healthcare provider if you have a history of kidney disease, liver impairment, or any other medical conditions. Allegra may interact with certain medications, including ketoconazole, erythromycin, and antacids containing aluminum or magnesium, so it is essential to disclose all medications you are currently taking. Pregnant or breastfeeding women should consult their doctor before using Allegra to assess the potential risks and benefits of treatment.
