INTRODUCTION

ALLEGRA contains Fexofenadine which belongs to the group of medicine called Antihistamines. It is used to provide relief from symptoms associated with seasonal allergic rhinitis in children (aged 2 to 11 years). It is also used to treat uncomplicated skin manifestations of chronic idiopathic urticaria in children (aged 6 months to 11 years of age).

Seasonal allergic rhinitis is an inflammatory condition of the upper airways that occurs in response to exposure to airborne allergens (such as tree, grass, and weed pollens) in sensitized individuals, generally characterized by symptoms such as nasal stuffiness, itchy nose/throat/eyes, headache, and weakness. Chronic idiopathic urticaria is a disturbing allergic condition of the skin that recurs without any known cause which is generally characterized by symptoms such as raised/swollen wheals on skin, itching, and swelling of the lips, eyelids, or throat.

Avoid giving fruit juices (such as grapefruit, orange and apple juice) to your child while taking ALLEGRA since it may reduce the effect of this medicine. Before administering ALLEGRA, inform child’s doctor if your child has liver, kidney, or heart problems. ALLEGRA is not recommended for use in children who are allergic to fexofenadine.

It is not indicated for use in pregnant and breastfeeding women since it is recommended for use only in children. The most common side effects of taking ALLEGRA are headache, back pain, dizziness, stomach discomfort, pain in extremity, fever, middle ear infection, and vomiting. Contact child’s physician if any of the symptoms worsen.
