A 48-year-old member asked:

can i take allegra (fexofenadine) and claritanl together?

Yes, but why: Both Allegra and Claritin (loratadine) are new generation antihistamines used to treat allergies. If symptoms are so severe that both medications are needed, see an allergist for a better treatment plan. However, there is no drug interaction if both are taken together at usual doses.

A 47-year-old member asked:

Could a generic form of allergy(fexofenadine) be different?

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.
A 47-year-old member asked:

Allegra-d nauseates me and makes me jittery, is there anything else that works just as well?

AllegraD, jittery: Allegra (fexofenadine) d is a combination of non drowsy antihistamine and pseudo Ephedrine (sudafed). For many people decongestant portion causes jitteriness. Since it is a fixed combination with a slow releasing high dose of pseudoehedrine you have no control over the higher dose. You may try allegra, (fexofenadine) and add sudafed (30 mgm) separately and tolerate it better. May not cause nausea.

Yes- what symptom?: Allegra d is a combo of fexofenadine and pseudoephedrine. The 12 hour preparation has 120 mg of sudafed in it, a lot of decongestant, if you are sensitive. This causes the jitters, and may cause the nausea. If your main symptom is congestion, the answer could be no. If itching, sneezing, etc, try plain fexofenadine. Nasal prescription sprays also work and have less side effects because local only.

Why can't you take allegra (fexofenadine) with juice?

Interference: Grapefruit juice interferes with the body's metabolism of allegra, (fexofenadine) preventing the natural process. Thus the drug can have unintended effects.
