Reviews for Fexofenadine / pseudoephedrine
Allegra-D 24 Hour (fexofenadine / pseudoephedrine) "Allegra D has is like a magic pill! This April-May I’ve been suffering horribly from severe allergies and also caught bad viral cold twice!! Also Im terribly allergic to dogs and during that time, my husband also decided to adopt a dog from SPCA. I was literally in bed those two months, taking daily cold and allergy meds (switching b/w regular Allegra/Claritin/Zyrtec) but still has constant sneezing/ itchy eyes/post nasal drip/coughing/congestion, with not even a minute of relief. I decided to take Allegra D for the first time and it’s given me my life back. I’ve been so incredibly grateful for this because it’s worked so beautifully for me. I have zero symptoms of allergies (especially to dog!) and zero symptoms of the medicines side effects. I’ve been taking it daily for 2 weeks. Allegra D doesn’t work for everyone but give it a try b/c it’s saved me and I’m just sooo grateful to be able to function normally now (and saved my rescue dog from being returned!)"
Allegra-D 24 Hour (fexofenadine / pseudoephedrine) "I've tried other allergy medications but Allegra-D is the only one that works. I used to get constant post nasal drip and have to clear my throat all the time. On this medication I feel amazing. It does however cause insomnia and bad dry mouth. It also makes it so I don't get a full erection. So do I feel better and not have sex or what?"
Allegra-D 24 Hour (fexofenadine / pseudoephedrine) "I only needed to take ONE of these pills to cure my clogged nose. Within hours I could breathe again and I haven’t had a stuffy nose since. Usually I have clogged noses for a week when I catch a cold. I’m so happy I found this."
Allegra-D 12 Hour (fexofenadine / pseudoephedrine) "I have chronic rhinitis. I was very ill last year, and my immune system hasn't been the same since. My immune system now reacts to everything around me, i.e. I'm allergic to all of my surroundings: dust, pollen, etc. Instead of the typical runny nose and sneezing, the inner membrane of my nose would swell almost completely shut. I was miserable. Accompanied by a nasal spray, Allegra D was the best thing that's ever been prescribed to me! Although at first I suffered severe insomnia, the side-effects became milder with time."
Are you taking this medicine?
Allegra-D 24 Hour (fexofenadine / pseudoephedrine) "Do NOT take this medicine. It should be illegal. I took it for 3 days, and all 3 days I felt nauseous, dizzy, unmotivated, and depressed. Worst part is I haven’t slept more than 2-3 hours a night. This medication will disrupt your life. I usually take Zyrtec D but decided to try Allegra out - my allergies have gotten exponentially worse on it. I have had severe sinus pressure, a cough, and headaches in addition to all the other symptoms."
Allegra-D 24 Hour (fexofenadine / pseudoephedrine) "Yes, this medication works to eliminate symptoms of allergies, however I had a big issue with - what I'm assuming is - a side effect of the medication. When I took the medication my personality immediately changed; I actually became less talkative and happy and it severely affected my life to the point where I randomly started crying during school. I'm assuming that the medication put me in a depression-esque state (I've never had depression before so I can't say for sure) but it altered my personality in ways my personality has never changed for the three days I took it and people noticed. It was honestly terrifying. Be wary of the side effects when taking this medication."
Allegra-D 12 Hour (fexofenadine / pseudoephedrine) "This medication Allegra-D 12 hr has been for me as close to a lifesaver as it can be. No other medication works for me, without an Rx, of course. I take it once every other day and my nose and sinus remain quiet. I do appreciate Allegra-D 12 hour caller❤"
Allegra-D 12 Hour (fexofenadine / pseudoephedrine) "I was suffering from a severe sinus infection for over a week, and I was taking Sudafed to help with the pain and pressure, but of course, that did not work for a sinus infection. I started taking the 24 hour Allegra-D for my congestion and inflamed sinuses along with antibiotics and it helped almost immediately. Every day. I only took it until my infection went away, not continuously. Only side effects were really bad dry mouth constantly and bad drainage of mucous so I constantly had to clear my throat, which caused my throat to be sore."
Allegra-D 12 Hour (fexofenadine / pseudoephedrine) "I was prescribed this medication several years ago for allergies. I was told to take it twice a day. It was effective; however, it did cause insomnia to the point the doctor instructed me to take it once a day. It also gave me headaches the first few days taking it. Other then that, it was highly effective."
Allegra-D 24 Hour (fexofenadine / pseudoephedrine) "I tried Allegra D 24 as my pharmacy was out of Claritin D. The 1st few days this really didn't do anything for my sinuses, by day 7 I was suffering from such intense side effects that I could not work, and wound up with an emergency appointment with any Doctor that would see me at my doctors office. My side effects from the Allergra D was anxiety to the 10th power (never had anxiety before), chest tightness, felt like my throat was closing, could not breathe, terrible cough, dry mouth it has been a horrible few days while waiting for this medication to leave my system. I was even give Xanax to help relieve my anxiety, which if you have taken it is no picnic either. I have been taking Claritin D for years and never experienced anything like this."
Allegra-D 24 Hour (fexofenadine / pseudoephedrine) "Allergra D, is the best medicine for my allergies and I've taken just about every over the counter medicine. I have terrible hay fever and I'm allergic to almost all grasses, trees, pollen in my region (Midwest- Illinois). My allergist suggested that I move to Arizona. Unlike Allegra D 12-hour, I'm having trouble with side effects: insomnia, nausea, heart burn, cramping. The stomach-related effects are beginning to taper off, but the insomnia isn't."
Allegra-D 24 Hour (fexofenadine / pseudoephedrine) "This medicine works great for allergies. However, day five into taking it, I’m experiencing MAJOR depression/personality changes. I don’t feel like myself at all, and there’s nothing else in my life that would contribute to this. My personality feels extremely subdued, I’m withdrawn, don’t care about anything or anyone, and negative self-talk has significantly increased...this is not who I am! I’ll be stopping this medication tomorrow."
Allegra-D 24 Hour (fexofenadine / pseudoephedrine) "I started taking Allegra D when I moved to North Carolina where pollen is abundant. I began getting headaches that felt like migraines. I went to several sinus and allergy experts even a neurologist. I had several C-scans and X-rays but no doctor could find the problem. Recently, one sinus doctor did. It was an inflammation of the tissue lining in the sinuses. She told me to stop using Allegra D and gave me a prescription for a liquid steroid to mix with saline solution twice a day in a special plastic squeeze bottle with a curved nozzle. It has been a lifesaver. I will never take Allegra D again! Inflammation of the sinus tissue is mentioned as a rare side effect for Allegra D but it should be stressed more."
Allegra-D 24 Hour (fexofenadine / pseudoephedrine) "I love this. If I don't take it, I ALWAYS end up with a sinus infection and a trip to the Dr. When I do take it, I don't sleep as well, but I'm not tired in between. My major issue is that I am always constipated when I take Allegra-D and my periods are excruciatingly painful. "
"Took it around 6:30am before leaving for work. Experienced Terrible insomnia even though I took it early in the morning. Couldn't stay asleep more than three or four hours. Awful stomach pain and loss of appetite. Some itching. Weakness and dizziness when standing too quickly. Dry mouth so I'm constantly drinking water. Unfortunately the other OTC medicines didn't work as well as this product. I'm in a lose-lose situation."
Allegra-D 12 Hour (fexofenadine / pseudoephedrine) "I have severe pollen allergies and Allegra D was the best medicine I ever took, until I could not sleep. It causes insomnia in me so the trade off is insomnia versus feeling miserable 24/7. It took 2-3 days before I first received relief. Then there was a huge difference."
Allegra-D 12 Hour (fexofenadine / pseudoephedrine) "When fall sets in so do allergies where I live. After a trip to the doctor I was prescribed Allegra D- 12 Hour, and found that I had the sinus pressure relieved within 2 1/2 - 3 hours. However when drugs.com list states 'dizziness' as a side effect, they're not kidding. I had to get someone to take me home because I (personally) was too dizzy to even walk straight. So if this is prescribed to you I would suggest taking it on a day 'off' such as a weekend, or at night to discover how it affects you personally before you take it on a work day and find out the bad way."
Allegra-D 24 Hour (fexofenadine / pseudoephedrine) "I do not have allergies all year, but just seasonal allergies. When I have flare ups, I have tried everything from Zyrtec, Claritin, Sudaphed, Flonase, Benadryl and the only think that has given me instant relief without knocking me completely out has been Allegra D. It covers my allergies and sinus drainage all at once and I love that it is just a once a day pill. Worth the money by far."
Allegra-D 24 Hour (fexofenadine / pseudoephedrine) "It works pretty good. My only two negatives are that the nasal decongestant in this doesn't work as well. I have to supplement occasionally with Afrin nose spray. I would be incredibly miserable without Allegra."
Allegra-D 24 Hour (fexofenadine / pseudoephedrine) "This is the only thing that helps me with my allergies. I get symptoms every year in November. It helps with the nasal dripping, and open up my sinuses only bad thing is.. mouth stay dry all the time. I recommend this to anyone"
Allegra-D 24 Hour (fexofenadine / pseudoephedrine) "I've just started experiencing allergies one year ago and only during the winter. I've owned my own business for the last 15 years and a new particular product that I use on my clients triggers my allergies. (There is no other product option for me to use). When winter hit again this year and the symptoms started again. I've tried EVERYTHING Allegra D is the absolute only thing that works! However, I have severe dry mouth, bad post nasal drip, and constant coughing. I use a over the counter mucus release medicine which WORKS! At the end of my work day it's terribly hard to breath so I'm going to try Afin with the Allegra D."
Allegra-D 24 Hour (fexofenadine / pseudoephedrine) "Lately, I have been so confused and unable to focus in school. This began shortly after I started attending my university. I've been more irritable, I don't like anybody anymore, I've been less motivated, more depressed, socially withdrawn, have had more problems in my family/friend relationships, and I don't do things that I used to enjoy. This all began after I started taking this medication—I was doing fine in school and was motivated to succeed until I began taking Allegra D. I wouldn't recommend this drug to anybody."
Allegra-D 24 Hour (fexofenadine / pseudoephedrine) "This medication works great for allergies. My mom takes it and she loves it. However, as soon as I take it, I start feeling all those crazy side effects. Dizziness, nausea, pain everywhere, headaches, crying spells, etc. I personally won’t ever take it again because it is definitely NOT for me but it is for people like my mom. So I don’t know. Maybe it just depends on your body because everyone is different "
Allegra-D 12 Hour (fexofenadine / pseudoephedrine) "I used to take an allergy drug called Ornade some years ago. It provided me instant relief of my allergy symptoms (hayfever and ragweed-related). Since then the only allergy medication that gives me that kind of relief is Allegra-D. "

Allegra-D 24 Hour (fexofenadine / pseudoephedrine) "This medication is NOT recommended! I have severe allergies to the spring weather, and since nothing else was working for me i decided to try this. At first it was like magic my allergies went away no itchy eyes, no sore throat i felt great! the side effects really hurt me though. it was about two days after taking the medication that I suffered a 24 hour migraine along with flu like symptoms, high fever, rashes, dizziness, confusion, racing heart, chills, anxiety, nausea, dry mouth, sleep problems, loss of appetite, and ringing in my ears. IT has been the worst two days of my life thanks to this medication"
