Histamine is a common cause of allergic reactions like hay fever. It causes inflammation of the nose, eyes or airways. This can lead to watery eyes, itchy eyes and a runny nose. Histamine can cause allergic skin reactions. The skin becomes itchy, inflamed and causes itchiness.
Fexofenadine blocks histamine receptors, effectively stopping the chain reaction that can cause allergy symptoms. Fexofenadine is usually effective within 30 minutes to an hour of taking a dose.
Fexofenadine can also be used to relieve itchy skin reactions called idiopathic urticaria or irritable dermatitis. It is similar to the nettle type of hives. Fexofenadine reduces itching caused by this condition by blocking the action of histamine.
Your doctor may ask that you take a prescribed dose of the medication every day until your rash improves.
Fexofenadine tablets must be taken whole with a glass of water before eating. For persistent allergic symptoms, this medication is best if taken daily. If you miss a dose, do not double your dose of Fexofenadine to make up for a missed dose.
For hay fever in adults and adolescents above 12 years, the suggested dose is one 120 mg tablet to be taken one time a day.
To treat chronic idiopathic urticaria in adults and adolescents of 12 years and over, the recommended dose is one 180 mg tablet to be taken one time a day.
