What is Allegra (Fexofenadine HCL) used for?
Histamine, a natural chemical in the body, can produce symptoms such as runny nose, sneezing, itchiness and watery eyes. Fexofenadine is an antihistamine that lowers histamine and reduces these symptoms. It can also be used for outdoor allergies including seasonal allergies and hay fever. Adults and children can also take it to treat chronic idiopathic urticaria, which causes itching and hives on the skin. This medication guide does not include all possible uses for Allegra.
