Benefits:   The treatment benefits were a noticable reduction in nasal symptoms of runny nose and itching. Additionally, I had no nasal pressure or headaches due to same. The drug needs to be taken daily. I would take it for a month at a time. It started working within two days after noticing my allergy symptoms flaring up (When Christmas tree came into house and in spring when trees pollinate.)

Fexofenadine review by 48 year old female patient

  Rating
Overall rating:  
Effectiveness:   Considerably Effective
Side effects:   No Side Effects
  
Treatment Info
Condition / reason:   Seasonal Allergy
Dosage & duration:   180 mg taken daily for the period of 7 months
Other conditions:   None
Other drugs taken:   None
  
Reported Results
Benefits:   Controlled itching in eyes, nasal and chest congestion, and "tickle cough" very well
Side effects:   No direct side effects but I used to take OTC allergy med (loratidine) except during extreme periods, then I would switch to the prescription for two months or so. Now the allergy seems unresponsive to the over the counter medication, no matter what time of year it is. I do not know if my allergy has changed or if I have become dependent on the fexofenadine.
Comments:   One 180 mg tablet each morning as needed for sinus.

 

Fexofenadine review by 47 year old male patient

  Rating
Overall rating:  
Effectiveness:   Highly Effective
Side effects:   No Side Effects
  
Treatment Info
Condition / reason:   Chronic Idiopathic Urthicaria with Pruritis
Dosage & duration:   180Mg taken twice daily for the period of 3 years
Other conditions:   Brachioradial Pruritis, Cervical Radiopathy, ADD, Hypogonadism
Other drugs taken:   Methalphenadate, Diazipam, Androgel
  
Reported Results
Benefits:   Incidents reduced from daily to maybe every 6 to 8 weeks. If I missed my dose however by hour 14 I would start to break out. This would indicate to me that the histamine levels are ever present and the histamine blocker is what is keeping their ill effects at bay. I have however discovered that recently my pharmacy changed their generic manufacturer and the new version is very ineffective. I've had 5+ severe breakouts in 3 months
Side effects:   Virtually none. Not drowsiness, not upset stomach, no nothing. Just don't miss your dose.
Comments:   take one at 7 am when I wake up, the other at 7pm after supper.
