Can I take an allegra (fexofenadine) pill about an hour after drinking thera flu?

Too much : In general I would not advise taking Allegra (fexofenadine) 30 min. after TheraFlu .TheraFlu contains an antihistamine called chlorpheniramine which would last for approximately 4 to 6 hours. So, you should wait that time frame, then it would be safe. ...Read more

Can I drink on Zyrtech? I take it daily & it's never made me drowsy. An answer on here said Allegra (fexofenadine) was ok, should I substitute when I plan to drink?

Beer goggles on: Zyrtec does cross the blood brain barrier (Allegra doesn't) so it can cause CNS involvement >24 h. reducred reaction times multiplied by etoh so do not drive. Drinking is not absolutely contraindicated, but maybe not prudent. Might fall off your stool (wifey did on benedryl); go w/ girlfriends or bro to watch your back. Go slower. Nix (permethrin) the shots. ...Read more

So i'm using allegra (fexofenadine) allergy pills, and i'm going to a party where there will be some alcohol, what can happen if I drink?

Little interaction: Allegra does not cross from the bloodstream into the brain so it does not cause sedation or other behavioral side-effects. It's an excellent choice as an antihistamine if you plan to consume alcohol. Claritin rarely causes sedation, zyrtec sometimes (~10%) and Benadryl (diphenhydramine) often (25-50%) - so don't mix these with alcohol. I know that because you asked you are planning to drink responsibly. ...Read more
