Is it possible for you to take an allegra (fexofenadine) in the morning then a claritan d at night?

Yes, but why? Claritin (loratadine) d contains the decongestant pseudoephedrine, which can interfere with sleep. Allegra and Claritin (loratadine) are both antihistamines. Allegra is typically taken twice a day, while Claritin (loratadine) is taken once a day. These medicines are considered to be generally quite safe. There is probably no harm in combining them, but it would seem to make better sense to chose just one or the other. Read more...

Can children take allegra (fexofenadine) and claritan at the same time?

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...

I heard that Claritin (loratadine) needs several days of consecutive use to be effective. Are other allergy pills like Allegra (fexofenadine) similar?

This is a myth. Antihistamines vary in their onset of action (how quickly they relieve symptoms). Allegra, Zyrtec and Benadryl start helping in 2 hours, Claritin in 4 hours. Claritin is generally the least effective, hence the rumor that it takes days to help. . Read more...
