Allegra is developed as a substitute to the antihistamine terfenadine. Exposure to allergens like pet fur, pollen, dust and mites leads to production of a chemical called histamine by the body causing allergic reactions like runny nose, sneezing, itchy and watery eyes. Allegra works against these histamines produced by the body.
Besides the active ingredient Fexofenadine Hydrochloride, a second generation antihistamine that doesnt readily enter the patients bloodstream, Allegra is made of inactive ingredients such as magnesium stearate, croscarmellose, microcrystalline cellulose and pregelatinized starch.
Allegra, designed for oral consumption, is sold in tablet form. It is available in strengths of 30mg, 60mg and 180 mg. Although the dosage may vary according to the patients medical history and other related factors , the generally recommended dosage of Allegra is as follows:
