In brief: See your Doctor
If one is prescribed a medication that is not working for a particular set of symptoms or a certain disease then follow up with the prescribing physician is the most appropriate nest step.

Excellent advice. Your doctor knows that the 1st treatment offered will not work every time. Undoubtedly your physician will appreciate your call & feedback. Working together you will in all likelihood find an optimal solution for your symptoms that takes into account effectiveness, potential adverse effects, drug interactions with other medications that you are taking, formulary compliance & cost

Please see your primary provider if this condition doesn't improve.

In brief: Allegra (fexofenadine) not working
Depends what we are treating.
If allergic rhinitis symptoms, then adding a nasal steroid or antihistamine could help. If you are treating hives, then there are more effective oral antihitamnes such as zyrtec or xyzal (levocetirizine). Alternatively, one could add an h2 antagonist - such as Zantac or Pepcid for better control of the hives.

In brief: Try a different med
If Allegra (fexofenadine) is innefective for allergy symptoms, you might tri cetirazine (zyrtec) or loratadine.
Both are available over the counter.
