If you suffer from symptoms of hay fever, Fexofenadine tablets may be the perfect solution for you. Fexofenadine is an antihistamine, a class of drug used to treat the symptoms of allergies – such as hay fever, eczema, insect stings or bites. Symptoms include watery eyes, runny nose, itchiness, sneezing, hives, and rarely difficulty breathing.
Fexofenadine tablets work by targeting histamine receptors in your body, these are involved in the production of histamine, a chemical compound produced by the body in response to the presence of an allergen.
The presence of histamine in the body is what triggers an allergic reaction/response, thereby setting off a chain reaction within the body. An antihistamine such as Fexofenadine will interrupt that process, helping to alleviate the unpleasant symptoms associated with an allergic reaction.
What to expect when taking Fexofenadine tablets
When taking the medication, you can expect to start feeling its effects within one to two hours. It can be extremely effective if you are taking it regularly or as prescribed. Fexofenadine tablets come in two different doses; 120mg and 180mg. If you are suffering from hay fever (seasonal allergic rhinitis), the recommended daily dose of Fexofenadine tablets for adults over the age of 18 years is 120mg once daily. This can be taken with or without a food.
Tablets should be taken orally with a glass of water, and should always be taken as directed by your health professional. Fexofenadine should be swallowed whole without crushing or splitting the tablet.
Drinking apple juice and/or orange juice can decrease the exposure to fexofenadine and reduce its effects, therefore both should be avoided when taking this medication. You should also avoid taking any indigestion remedies for at least 2 hours before or after you take this medication.
Fexofenadine is a lot more potent in comparison to other antihistamines available on the market. Although the prescribed dosage will be specific to your allergies and the severity of any symptoms you experience, there are some things you should avoid and expect.
If you feel sick after taking Fexofenadine, you should avoid eating rich, spicy foods until the side effects pass. If you get any headaches, you can take a painkiller. Be sure to drink plenty of water, particularly if you feel dizzy after taking the medication. Fexofenadine is a non-drowsy antihistamine, but it may cause drowsiness in some patients. Alcohol should be avoided when taking this medication.
Mixing Fexofenadine with alcohol is not recommended as it can make you feel sleepy. It is also not recommended to get behind the wheel right after you start taking the medication for the first time, as it may cause drowsiness.
Give yourself time to see how it will affect you before you try driving on the medication. If you are taking contraception, you are in luck because both hormonal and non-hormonal types of contraception are not affected by this medication. It also does not affect fertility no matter what gender you are. Since it is a non-drowsy antihistamine, it will have less of an effect in comparison to other hay fever treatments. Keep in mind that while it should not cause drowsiness, it may have this effect on some people, although it is uncommon.
