I took the wrong allegra (fexofenadine) for my symptoms  16 hours ago (allegra (fexofenadine) (fexofenadine) 24 hour). Now i want to take allegra (fexofenadine) d 12 hour. Is it safe to take allegra (fexofenadine) d now?

It is ok: Allegra (fexofenadine) 24 hours is a slow release non drowsy anthistamine. Allegra (fexofenadine) d 12 hours has a decongestant, sudafed or pseudo ephedrine. D stands for decongestant. Allegra (fexofenadine) itself is pretty safe even if the dose is doubled. However, avoid exceeding the dose of decongestant as it can make you hyper and also keep you awake at night. You may also see an allergist to treat the cause of the problem. ...Read more
