Description

Allegra (fexofenadine) is an antihistamine drug that lessens the effects of naturally secreted histamine in the body. Histamine can produce symptoms of sneezing, itching, watery eyes, and runny nose.

Individuals who experience symptoms of seasonal allergy can buy Allegra 180mg online and relieve themselves the discomfort. Perennial allergy typically comes from allergens such pollen, hay fever, molds and animal fur in children and adults.

Allegra 180mg is also used to treat chronic Idiopathic Urticarial (A condition causing skin itching and hives) in adults and children. However, one should know that this drug is used to relieve the symptoms of an allergy but does not cure the allergic reaction.

How to use Allegra medication

Allegra drugs are cheap and are available from almost any local pharmacy. Although anyone can access Allegra, a doctor’s prescription is important. Canadian users can buy Allegra 180mg online easily and get appropriate usage guidelines. Allegra 180mg is usually available as 3 Packets of 30 Tablets each at $46(USD). This figure approximately equates to $1.53 per Tablet.

Allegra requires a glass of water. Store the tablets in the blister pack and only open when using them. One should remove a tablet by carefully piercing the foil first. You should not push the tablet through the foil as this could break it. Remember Allegra is a slow release (SR) drug.

The best method for achieving quickest results is holding the tablet in the mouth for a while swallowing water. It aids in dissolution which is essential for optimum absorbance to occur. Allegra 180mg works best when taken on an empty stomach, preferably 1hour before or 2 hours after a meal.

Precautions to take while using Allegra 180mg

Allegra 180mg reacts adversely with anti-acid medications. One should not adopt anti-acid pills 15 minutes before or after taking Allegra. Anti-acids create a medium that is not easy for Allegra 180mg to be absorbed.

Persons with other allergies should avoid Allegra. This drug contains some inactive ingredients that can trigger hypersensitivity. Individuals with known kidney disease should also not use Allegra.

One should not take this medication together with some fruits or juice. Fruit juices such as apple, orange, or grapefruit reduce the rate at which the body absorbs fexofenadine.

If you miss a dose, do not take a double dose the next time. Just continue with the regular schedule. In very rare case does a doctor prescribe a daily dosage for Allegra.
