Side-effects?: If you have negative symptoms which you can attribute to medication you have been taking, stop taking it. Fexofenadine may cause headache, dizziness, diarrhea, vomiting, pain in arms, legs, or back, cough, hives, rash, itching, difficulty breathing or swallowing, swelling of the face, throat, tongue, lips, eyes, etc. Difficulty with urination would be unusual. See your doctor to make sure.

If blood falls too low , there is risk for developing kidney failure.It is a a good pressure medication and can also reduce protein " leakage " from the kidney and has other beneficial effects.
