Fexofenadine (Definition)

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.

Can I take mucinex (guaifenesin) sinus max day and allegra d together?

Can I take mucinex (guaifenesin) sinus max day and allegra d together?

Probably not: I couldn't find the exact ingredients in mucinex (guaifenesin) sinus max but presume it does contain pseudoephedrine as well. When you take Allegra D, you are getting this ingredient as well and may end up with elevated BP, faster heart rate, and /or insomnia. If it does not contain a decongestant, it would be ok. ...Read more

Can I take Mucinex (guaifenesin) and Allegra at the same time?

Can I take Mucinex (guaifenesin) and Allegra at the same time?

Yes: Plain Mucines is guaifenesin, which helps break up mucus. Allegra (fexofenadine) is an antihistamine. Be cautious when picking out medications and be sure to know what products you are taking. There are many versions of Mucinex- including DM, multi symptom, sinus, allergy etc. These other versions have additional things that you may not need. Stick with single ingredient medicines when you can. ...Read more

Good Evening I'm battling allergies right now and I was wondering if I could take mucinex or NyQuil after taking Allegra at 10pm?

Good Evening I'm battling allergies right now and I was wondering if I could take mucinex or NyQuil after taking Allegra at 10pm?

Probably: Allegra typically is non-sedating and even NyQuil is usually well tolerated. If one is sensitive to Allegra, then combine with caution if you need to be alert in the morning. Mucinex can be taken with both. ...Read more

Can it be bad to take allegra, melatonin, Mucinex (guaifenesin) and echinacea all at once before I go to bed?

Many pills etc.: I see a list of four pills. Do you really need each of them?

They are unlikely to do much, if any, harm, but I would spread them out over the day rather than all at once at bedtime ...Read more

I'm om labetalol and lexapro (escitalopram). I have a cold and I took Allegra this morning. Can I take a Mucinex as well?

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

I found out I am 5 weeks preg. I was on meds prior to finding out. I used coltsfoot tea, allegra, singular, mucinex, nasonex (mometasone). Will this harm the fetus?

I found out I am 5 weeks preg. I was on meds prior to finding out. I used coltsfoot tea, allegra, singular, mucinex, nasonex (mometasone). Will this harm the fetus?

Probably not: Singulair and Guaifenesin (mucinex, not with d) are quite safe. Allegra is a pregnancy class c drug, but there don't seem to be no known bad side effects. Nasonex (mometasone) is fine. Coltsfoot tea has been banned in some countries because it contains tiny amounts of chemicals that can cause liver damage and cancer. Still, the tea may be safe, but the fda has determined the have indeterminate safety. ...Read more

What works better for running nose, allergies? Allegra, Claritin, Zytrec, or Mucinex (guaifenesin)? Debating on which one to get. Fast and 24 hr relief is what am looking for.

Allergy: True allergy should be treated with an antiallergy medication such as loratadine, fexofenadine or cetirizine. They are generally considered equivalent and you should use the one that works best for you. Mucinex (guaifenesin) is an expectorant and should not do much for allergy. ...Read more

Can I take zyrtec and allegra (fexofenadine) together?

Can I take zyrtec and allegra (fexofenadine) together?

Not advisable: I would not take both at the same time because these medications do the same thing and can have additive effects if used together. They are both antihistamines for the treatment of allergies. If one of these alone is not helping, sometimes switching to the other one is helpful. If none of these remedies work, then consultation with your doctor or allergist would be appropriate. ...Read more

Can I take a benadryl (diphenhydramine) & Mucinex night together?

Can I take a benadryl (diphenhydramine) & Mucinex night together?

Yes: Benadryl (diphenhydramine) will help you sleep and help with excess mucus production. Mucinex (guaifenesin) is called an expectorant as it helps thin and loosen mucus to make your cough more effective at clearing the mucus from your lungs. There should be no problem taking these two medications together. ...Read more
