I typically take an allegra (fexofenadine) 180 in the am and an alavert 10mg at night. Today i accidentally took 1 allegra (fexofenadine) 180 @7am and another at 10pm. Will i be ok?

Though I am not familiar with specific symptoms regarding Allegra (fexofenadine) overdose, most of the time, patients will have vomiting, abdominal pain, or headaches.
