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.

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
