The Fexofenadine tablet contains fexofenadine hydrochloride, an antihistamine. Adults and adolescents of 12 years and above can use fexofenadine tablets to treat symptoms of hay fever.

FAQ

  • How do Fexofenadine tablets work?

    The body releases histamine when we come into contact with pollen or other external things to which we are allergic. The histamine released subsequently binds to histamine receptors, causing symptoms like sneezing, runny nose, and watery or itchy eyes, which are common in hay fever and allergies.

    Fexofenadine hydrochloride works by preventing histamine from binding to histamine receptors. Symptoms do not arise because histamine is unable to attach to receptors.

  • How long does it take Fexofenadine to work?

    You will start to feel the benefits of fexofenadine within an hour of taking the tablet.

  • How long does Fexofenadine last?

    One 120mg tablet of fexofenadine is effective for up to 24 hours.

  • How should fexofenadine tablets be taken?

    Fexofenadine tablets should be taken once per day, at the same time each day. Tablets can be taken with or without food. If you forget to take a dose, take it as soon as you remember it. However, if it has been four hours since you were supposed to take a dose, do not take an extra dose to compensate; instead, wait until the following dose. Setting an alarm can help you remember to take your medication.

    If you take an excess dose by accident, fexofenadine is unlikely to harm you. You may, however, be more susceptible to typical adverse effects.

    Always follow your doctor's or pharmacist's instructions when using this (or any other) medication.
