If you have seasonal allergies, you may benefit from Allegra-D® (fexofenadine and pseudoephedrine), a medication that contains both a decongestant and an antihistamine. Also known as hay fever, seasonal allergies affect about 35 million Americans. Symptoms can develop as a result of breathing in pollen from trees, grasses, and/or weeds.
Some of the hay fever symptoms that can be treated with Allegra-D include:
- Runny nose
- Itchy nose or throat
- Itchy, watery, or red eyes.
Allegra-D is a nonprescription drug that comes in tablet form. It is taken once a day, preferably on an empty stomach. It is approved for use in adults and adolescents 12 years of age and older.
