Use as needed: Fexofenadine (allegra) is ok over 6 months of age and has a good safety profile.It is a slowly metabolized antihistamine that does not cross into the brain and cause sedation like some similar drugs.The body does not develop a tolerance (require increasing amounts to be effective). It is safe enough to use all year of for the several months your child seems bothered by seasonal allergies. ...Read more

I take Allegra (fexofenadine) in the morning. My doctor prescribed singular at night. I took it once & had a really severe headache all night. Should I take it again? Cut in half? Or look for something different.

Doctor said take two Zantac (ranitidine) 150mg and two Allegra 180mg twice a day is this going to harm my body?

Medicine: Taking two Zantac (ranitidine) 150 mg daily is a normal dose but two Allegra 180 mg is higher than the recommended dose. It will not likely hurt you in the short term but it I would not recommend it longterm. Taking two Allegra is not likely going to help you much more than just taking one a day. ...Read more

Doctor says I have Angioedema and hives told me to take Allegra 180mg in morning and Zyrtec10mg at night and Zantac (ranitidine) 150mg does this sound right.

Doctor says I have Angioedema and hives told me to take Allegra 180mg in morning and Zyrtec10mg at night and Zantac (ranitidine) 150mg does this sound right.

Yes: the use of second generation antihistamines as the ones prescribed to control hives and angioedema is right, use of zantac (ranitidine) is controversial nowadays, however, More important is seeing an allergist/dermatologist for management,trying to find a cause and monitor treatment.If angioedema is causing any respiratory problems,although rare, an epinephrine pen may be needed, check aaaai.org 4 an allergist ...Read more
