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

Not advisable: I would not take both at the same time because these medications do the same thing and can have additive effects if used together. They are both antihistamines for the treatment of allergies. If clairitin alone is not helping, sometimes switching to Allegra (fexofenadine) or zyrtec is helpful. If none of these remedies work, then consultation with your doctor or allergist would be appropriate. ...Read more
