Allegra D Cause A Runny Nose
Hi I took the regular Claritin (loratadine) this morning and my nose is very congested can I take the allegra d now or should I wait until the morning?
Fexofenadine is an antihistamine which is used to treat allergies such as hayfever, and hives. It can be taken once or twice a day. It is a second generation antihistamine and does not cause as much drowsiness as other antihistamines such as Diphenhydramine (benaryl) or chlorpheniramine. Always be careful about drowsiness with any antihistamine especially if driving ...Read more

I know there is clariten d and allegra d for allergies, but are there any eye drops and nasal sprays that are equally effective?
Nasal sprays: Topical steroid nasal sprays are available by prescription. They are the most effective treatment for allergies affecting the nose and some have shown improvement in eye symptoms as well. They are safe and 1 product is approved by fda for use down to 2 years old. It's well worth a trip to the doctor. Avoid over the counter nasal sprays; a person can develop dependency and rebound if over used. ...Read more

What should I take with Allegra (fexofenadine) to get rid of my runny nose allegy? I see something about Decongested, but what would be best? Thank you.
Steroid nasal spray: Allergic rhinitis is defined as nasal congestion, sneezing, itchy nose/palate/eyes with a pattern of allergic triggers. Allergen avoidance is key, while intranasal corticosteroids remain the single most effective class of medications for treating allergic rhinitis; e.g., fluticasone, mometasone, budesonide, triamcinolone, etc. Add an oral antihistamine to the regimen and say goodbye to symptoms. ...Read more
I take Allegra and Nasacort (triamcinolone) daily but am still suffering from recurrent sneezy, runny nose (clear/sticky) and inflamation. Is there any other help?
See allergist: The best treatment is avoidance of the allergens which can be identified best with allergy skin test and somewhat less effectively with blood tests. ...Read more
Taking allegra (fexofenadine) d 12hr on advice since a week for constant sneezing and stuffy/runny nose. My period was due on 22 and its 27 now. Should I stop using?
Allegra-D: There are no warnings or descriptions discussing amenorrhea and allegra-d. The best way to know would be to stop it altogether and see if your cycle starts up. Another option would be to use the Allegra (fexofenadine) component alone and then the sudafed component alone to see if it is one of those separately. ...Read more
What other medicine is safe to take with allegra (fexofenadine) d? My husband is having a congested/runny nose, scratchy throat, pressure in his head?
A nasal steroid...: Your husband should consider an allergy evaluation, and likely an intranasal steroid and nasal saline rinses to help relieve his symptoms. There are a few medication options, but would consider an evaluation to determine which medication is best. ...Read more
What is harmful about giving children < 2 allegra (fexofenadine)? My 10 mth old has had a constant runny nose with sneezing for 5 weeks. My 4 y/o has allergies also.
I would use > 6m: I find this helpful in many kids & use it over 6m of age. However, most congestion/sneezing in infants & toddlers is related to illness or nasal irritants like smoke, fragrance, fumes & the like & the primary rx is avoidance. Antihistamines have no effect when used for drainage triggered by irritants. ...Read more
Had runny nose and watery eyes during the winter and dr told me to get any OTC med and I have been usingotc allegra 180mg for 2 yearsthinking that it should be taken daily, had bad experience like extreme anxiety, upper back pain, difficulty urination,
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. ...Read more

Probably viral: Child probably has a viral Upper respiratory infection. Usually takes 5-7 days regardless. If lethargic, not drinking, not responding, difficulty breathing, or fever returning then doctor needs to see her again. Children of this age group are incapable of throwing out phlegm but do a very decent job of coughing it up &then swallowing which actually removes it from the respiratory system. ...Read more
I have severe congestion, sneezing, runny nose, awful dry sometimes yellow mucus cough, my mucus from my nose is clear. I took allegra, did not help at all. I cant decide if its allergies or a sinus infection/cold. Its been 3 days. Should I take mucinex c
Infection?: Try a different antihistamine, like Benadryl (diphenhydramine). If 25-50 mg of Benadryl (diphenhydramine) makes no difference, then it is not likely that your symptoms are due to allergies. There is no good evidence that mucinex is much help and it is expensive and has its own side effects, and I never recommend it. Avoid fragrances and aerosols while sick (add to irritation of respiratory tract). See MD if no better in 2-3 days. ...Read more

Well presence of allergies, hyper inflated lungs on cxr and dyspnea suggest asthma. You can have normal pfts (pulmonary function tests) ad still have asthma. I am not sure you have been tried on but usually you need blood test or skin test for allergies and a total ige level (blood test). You could try inhalers on regular basis for example advair or Dulera (formoterol and mometasone) on twice a day basis and see if this will help you symptomatically. Some times treatment of asthma can become difficult and will need some patience at your and your doctors end.
Hope this helps. ...Read more
Seasonal allergic rhinitis with blocked nose, itchy eyes and nose, sneezing mostly had allegra (fexofenadine) 120 but no result please help?
Allergic Rhinitis: Nasal blockage and itchy eyes are not often helped by oral antihistamines. For the itchy eyes you may require an eye drop - the most effective are by prescription. For the nasal blockage which is caused by swelling due to allergic inflammation, you will need a steroid nasal spray - available by prescription only. A decongestant might help some, but not as well as the prescription nasal spray. ...Read more
I'm sneezing & have runny nose. My gp prescribed fexofenadine 180mg treatment for 28 days. Still same symptoms after 14 days. Is it normal? Thanks
Probably: Fexofenadine (aka allegra) is anantihistamine. While antihistamines may occasionally provide slight relief for those who do not have allergies, bsically it won't do much if your sneezing is not from true igee mediated allergic rhinitis. So consider seeng your doc again if your symptoms do not improve soon. ...Read more
64 yom has been experiencing cough with mucus and runny nose in the am for 6 months. No fever or other complains Taking alegra and Flonase, no help?
Post Nasal Drip: Chronic cough is most commonly due to 3 conditions: asthma, post-nasal drip, or GERD (heartburn). You might have one or a combination of all three. Further workup by Allergist is helpful as they can perform a more detailed assessment including skin testing, pulmonary function testing, and. Chest x-ray.
