Fexofenadine For Hayfever And Allergies

What Is Fexofenadine Used For?

Fexofenadine is an antihistamine primarily used to treat symptoms associated with hayfever such as allergic rhinitis. It tackles everything from sneezing and itchy, watery eyes to a runny or itchy nose, providing comprehensive relief from the discomfort of allergies. It is also used to relieve the symptoms of long-term allergic skin reactions (chronic idiopathic urticaria), such as itching, swelling and rashes.

How Fexofenadine Tablets Work

Fexofenadine functions by inhibiting the action of histamine, a substance in the body that causes allergic symptoms. By blocking the receptors that histamine binds to, Fexofenadine prevents the allergic reaction and its associated symptoms from escalating.

Fexofenadine Max Dosage

The standard dosage for treating hay fever symptoms in adults is fexofenadine 120mg taken once daily, while the dose for chronic skin reactions such as urticaria is fexofenadine 180mg once daily. Dosages may vary based on individual needs and recommendations from a doctor or pharmacist.

Who Cannot Take Fexofenadine?

Individuals allergic to Fexofenadine hydrochloride or any of the tablet’s inactive ingredients should avoid this medication. If you have a history of kidney issues, consult a doctor or pharmacist before starting Fexofenadine.

How to Take Fexofenadine Tablets

Fexofenadine tablets should be taken with a drink of water and before meals for optimal absorption. Consistency in taking the medication at the same time each day will help maintain an even level of medicine in your body.

Fexofenadine Side Effects

While Fexofenadine is generally well-tolerated, there is a risk of side effects in some people. If you experience side effects, stop taking Fexofenadine and talk to your doctor or pharmacist.

Fexofenadine may cause:

  • headache
  • drowsiness
  • dizziness
  • nausea

These side effects of Fexofenadine are typically mild and temporary.

Fexofenadine Warnings

Patients should be aware of the potential for allergic reactions to any of the ingredients in Fexofenadine tablets. It is also important to avoid taking aluminium or magnesium-containing antacids within 15 minutes of taking Fexofenadine, as they can reduce its effectiveness.

Fexofenadine FAQs

It is essential to consult a GP or pharmacist before using Fexofenadine in pregnancy. 

Unlike some over-the-counter antihistamines, Fexofenadine is available by prescription only. You must consult with a healthcare professional to obtain this medication.

This product is available from a licensed UK pharmacy with free online consultations.

It’s usually best to avoid taking Piraton (chlorphenamine) and fexofenadine together as they are both antihistamines. Taking them together might increase the risk of side effects like drowsiness or dry mouth. If you’re considering using both for allergy relief, it’s a good idea to talk to your GP or pharmacist to get advice tailored to your specific needs. They can suggest the best treatment options for you.

All medications have an expiration date, and Fexofenadine is no exception. Always check the expiry date on the package and avoid using the medication past this date to ensure effectiveness and safety.

The recommended dose of Fexofenadine should not be exceeded. Typically, this would be one 120mg or 180mg tablet daily, depending on the prescribed strength.

Do not take a double dose to make up for a forgotten tablet – skip the missed dose. Wait to take until the time for your next dose, at the usual time as prescribed by your doctor.

If you have taken more Fexofenadine than the recommended amount, it is important to seek immediate medical attention. Overdose symptoms might include dizziness, drowsiness, and dry mouth.

The quantity of Fexofenadine that can be purchased at one time may be regulated by pharmacy policy and the discretion of the pharmacist based on your prescription.

It is recommended to take Fexofenadine on an empty stomach for better absorption. However, if stomach upset occurs, you may take it with food.

If you’re taking Fexofenadine and decide to drink alcohol, monitor how it affects you and try not to drink too much. Alcohol can increase the risk of side effects of antihistamines.

Even though Fexofenadine is considered a non-drowsy antihistamine, it might still make some people sleepy. If you find it makes you drowsy, avoid driving and using tools or machinery.

You might start feeling better just 10-20 minutes after taking your first dose. Generally, you’ll notice your allergy symptoms ease within an hour, with the strongest relief kicking in about two to three hours later. Normally, fexofenadine takes around two hours to start working, but if you’ve had a high-fat meal, it could take up to four hours to reach full effect. Once you take it, the relief should last at least 24 hours.

Yes, fexofenadine is considered a strong and effective option for treating hay fever symptoms. It’s a non-sedating antihistamine, which means it works well to reduce symptoms like sneezing, itchy and watery eyes, and a runny nose without making you feel drowsy. It’s a good choice for those who need relief during the day and want to stay alert.

It is great to have somewhere local that does blood testing. The staff are lovely, helpful and experienced. They fit me in last minute. There is never a wait and the results back within a day or two.
After refusal of doctors appointment same old same old ring back etc. I was invited at 5.25 to see doctor I drove over immediately. Everything fully explained and checked over I was leaving by 6pm with penicillin for strep throat. Had I followed my doctors receptionist I would probably have suffered longer and increased the chances of a worse infection.I Great efficient service.
