Allegra (fexofenadine): Allegra (fexofenadine) is a very good anti-histamine and you can use it with lortabs.

Loratadine / lorabid: The first is an antihistamine , the second an antibiotic. In either case it should be ok , but would speak to your doctor to clarify so that you are not taking double meds when not necessary, as Allegra (fexofenadine) is also an antihistamine.

Yes: They act on different aspects of an allergic response; Allegra is an antihistamine, while singulair (montelukast) blocks leukotienes, another component of your body's immune system.

Yes: With any medication, your physician should be able to provide guidance if a medicine is ok for you to you. In general, any medication that has caused a reaction in the past should not be used again. If you have had a reaction to a medication that is in the same class as the medication on question use caution.

The normal dose for allergic rhinitis is once daily, but many doctors have been prescribing up to 4 doses per day for hives without problem.
