What Is Fexofenadine?
Fexofenadine hydrochloride is an antihistamine used to treat nasal allergies, including seasonal allergic rhinitis (hay fever) due to high pollen counts. Hay fever can have a major impact on the happiness and health of daily life. This can be experienced from anywhere between a week and several months.
Many opt to buy this medication because it is a non-drowsy antihistamine, unlike others of this strength. Although it is called a non-drowsy medication, these tablets have been known to make some people sleepy and those taking it for the first time should be vigilant to its side effects.
The branded version of Fexofenadine UK is called Telfast. This treatment works to block the action of one of the main chemicals responsible for causing hay fever symptoms, including red, itchy eyes and runny nose. All patients will need to fill out our online consultation form before they can buy Fexofenadine.
How Do I Take Fexofenadine Tablets?
All patients will need to ensure they are eligible or suitable to buy Fexofenadine before taking it. This is because it is a prescription only medication to help combat hay fever. These tablets may not be suitable for young children and the elderly (over 65).
Here at Post My Meds, we will try to make sure you have not or are not experiencing any other conditions that will inhibit you from taking Fexofenadine hayfever tablets. If this is the case, you may wish to speak to your GP about managing your hay fever and allergy symptoms.
Adults should take one 120 mg Fexofenadine tablet once daily with water and before a meal. If you are taking any antacids containing aluminium or magnesium, you should leave a two-hour gap between them and taking Fexofenadine for hay fever. This dose may change depending on the severity of your symptoms or what you wish to treat, i.e. hives, which may require a 180 mg tablet. This should be disclosed before you buy Fexofenadine.
Fexofenadine vs OTC Treatment
If you regularly suffer from hay fever symptoms with no complications which has not been successfully treated using over the counter (OTC) antihistamines such as active ingredients Cetirizine and Loratadine, then this prescription only medicine (POM) may be the right one to help combat your symptoms.
An over the counter antihistamine may only be able to combat some symptoms associated with hay fever or allergies, for example an itchy or blocked nose, and is not designed to relieve itchy eyes. As hay fever manifests differently in all individuals, it is always important to tailor any treatments to suit the case. This may make prescription medication more suitable. Some patients may be more susceptible to drowsiness than others and opt to buy Fexofenadine to combat hay fever instead of their current medication.
Please consult a doctor or the PIL before combining Fexofenadine tablets with OTC medication, as some may experience side effects.
