I have been taking allegra (fexofenadine)-d for 8 yrs and I have switched to regular allegra (fexofenadine). Should there be a difference?

I have been taking allegra (fexofenadine)-d for 8 yrs and I have switched to regular allegra (fexofenadine). Should there be a difference?

Allegra (fexofenadine) alone: Allegra d contains a decongestant that is a poor long term option. If you are dealing with chronic nasal congestion I would recommend alternative treatment such as a nasal spray like nasonex, (mometasone) flonase, etc. These are more effective long term options for nasal congestion due to allergies or other triggers. Otherwise regular Allegra should be sufficient as an antihistamine. ...Read more
