Not if properly...: ...Manufactured.
Ironically, of late the biggest manufacturing problems have been with brand-name companies, with several high-profile recalls.

Possibly: Since generic forms of fexofenadine hit the shelves, i've received about a dozen comments from my patients that the generic doesn't work as well as brand name allegra, but most people have found no noticeable difference between them.
