Remember, when taking allergy medications, that you should:
- Pay careful attention to package label instructions for use, side effects, and when you should call the doctor.
- Ask the pharmacist about specific questions such as possible interactions with other medications or foods.
- Follow label instructions exactly as indicated. Increasing dosages does not provide additional benefits. It merely increases the risks of side effects.
Clarinex, Xyzal and Astelin are some of the more commonly prescribed allergy medications in addition to Allegra. Allegra will be facing competition from OTC antihistamines including Benadryl, Claritin and Zyrtec.
