Generic Allegra (Fexofenadine 120 mg) guide:
What is the medication marketed as Generic Allegra?
Allegra is a trade name registered by a certain pharmaceutical company. The same medication is manufactured by other companies but is called differently. Collectively, such drugs made by the companies different than the known-brand owner are called Generic Allegra or Generic Fexofenadine by the name of the active ingredient. It is possible because the exclusive patent of the original preparation developer has already expired. It means that the formula is not a secret anymore and other drug makers can use it for the production of their own medications without infringing copyrights. Generics are even promoted and their production is encouraged by the World Health Organization because they make the most effective and deprived of side effects treatment available to wider populations.
The active substance of the preparation, Fexofenadine, is a second-generation antihistamine (anti-allergy medication). It is used in various forms of allergy and is the first medication of choice currently because it doesn’t have sleepiness as the side effect like older preparations do.
Is generic inferior to the branded medication?
This question is frequently asked about generics certainly because of their lower prices. The answer is “no”. Generic medications have absolutely the same composition, effect, and are as safe and efficient as the branded medications. They are cheaper for other reasons than the inferior quality.
First of all, their manufacturers do not invest in research which is one of the main items of expenditure. Secondly, they do not widely advertise their preparations like do the owners of large brands. In some countries and in the U.S. especially, doctors get rewards if they prescribe certain brands of medications which encourage them to insist that the branded medicines are better than generics when it’s not true. Thirdly, generic drug makers usually have their facilities in Eastern Europe, India, and other regions where the production costs are much lower than in the Western Europe or the North America but this doesn’t influence the quality of medications either because they and the facilities they are made at are properly inspected before the medication hits the market.
Therefore, if you need a medication for allergy, there is no point of paying more money for an advertised name. You can buy Generic Allegra from our online pharmacy and enjoy the treatment without spending all of your hard earned money.
When it’s time to buy Allegra?
People who suffer from seasonal allergy already know when the allergic season starts and the symptoms that indicate it’s already time to start taking antihistamine medications. If you are one of such people, you can order Allegra from our online pharmacy right away without consulting your doctor first or going for a prescription because we sell the medication without Rx.
If you have never suffered from an allergy and now suspect an allergy, you should visit a doctor to clarify the diagnosis and exclude other conditions. For instance, if you have a runny or stuffy nose, it can be a viral or bacterial infection rather than an allergy. However, if you have no contraindications for the preparation use, you can purchase the pills from our online pharmacy and see how they work for you even without visiting a doctor if you suffer from a runny or stuffy nose, sneezing, itching of the eyelids, or skin rash.
Does the preparation cure allergy?
Unfortunately, the answer is “no”. Allergy cannot be eliminated completely unless an allergen is eliminated from your life. For example, if you have the allergy to cats’ fur or skin particles, you cannot cure allergy but can completely get rid of the symptoms if you stop contacting cats at all. The medications such as Fexofenadine can only suppress the processes that occur in the body as a response to the allergen temporarily for as long as the medication is within the body.
Who must not use the medication?
You should not buy Allegra if you are expecting a baby or breastfeed, or are older than 65 years of age.
The medication is also contraindicated in hypersensitivity to its components and for children younger than 6 years of age.
The drug can be used in pregnant women but under a doctor’s supervision and only if the expected benefits to the mother will outweigh the risk to the baby.
The medication must be cautiously used in chronic renal or kidney failure.
What are negative symptoms that can accompany the medication use?
The negative symptoms that can occur during any medicine use are called side effects. They can accompany even the use of vitamins. Therefore, when you buy Fexofenadine you can expect to have certain negative symptoms that will make you quit using the medication. The adverse reactions that you can suffer from are back pain, headache, sleepiness, dizziness, nausea, and others. Children may experience flu-like symptoms, such as cough, fever, runny nose, and others.
How to take the medication?
The best way to use any preparation is exactly as your doctor prescribed. However, if you are certain that you don’t have intolerance of the medications’ ingredients and that you have seasonal allergy or urticaria, you can follow this instruction:
- Children over 12 years of age and adults in allergic rhinitis and seasonal allergic conjunctivitis should take 120 mg pill once a day.
- Children over 12 years of age and adults in urticaria should take 180 mg pill once a day.
- Children aged from 6 to 12 years in allergic rhinitis and seasonal allergic conjunctivitis should take 30 mg 2 times a day.
- People with chronic renal failure are advised to take 30 mg once a day in any condition.
Worth noting that certain substances reduce the effectiveness of the medication. It is not recommended to eat any acid fruits such as lemons, oranges, grapefruits, tangerines, apples, and so on during the therapy as they interfere with the anti-allergic medication’s absorption.
Is it safe to drive vehicles or operate machinery when you undergo the therapy with the drug?
According to the clinical trials, the medication doesn’t influence the ability to stay focused. So it is considered safe to drive or operate machinery when you buy Fexofenadine and start the therapy. However, it is advised to refrain from driving for the first couple of days of the therapy to see if you are not becoming sleepy after the pill intake as in a small percentage of the medication users this side effect develops.
Combination with other preparations
Before you order Generic Allegra, it would be wise to consult a specialist if you take any medications that you plan to continue using during the therapy with the antihistamine drug as they can negatively interact.
For example, medications taken to lower the stomach acidity and cope with heart burn reduce the absorption of Fexofenadine and can lower its efficiency. It is recommended to take Generic Fexofenadine (Allegra) at least 15 minutes after you’ve taken an antacid medication. There are also some antacids that require 2-hour interval between the medications intake.
Overdose with Generic Fexofenadine
An overdose with the medication can result in the occurrence of such side effects as dizziness, dryness in mouth, and sleepiness. The measures to cope with the condition are gastric lavage and symptomatic therapy. If the symptoms aren’t severe and you realized that you overdosed not more than 2 hours after you took an increased dose, you can try inducing vomiting to get rid of the drug excess in the body. If the symptoms are severe, you need to seek medical assistance.
