Allegra Background

Allegra® is an antihistamine medication used to treat patients suffering from seasonal allergies. Prescription-strength Allegra® became available as an over-the-counter (OTC) medication on March 4, 2011. The only version of Allegra® still requiring a prescription is Allegra® syrup for children ages six months to six years in the treatment of hives. According to Sanofi, this is because it is not easy to recognize hives in children of that age range.[7]

Allegra® is the brand name for fexofenadine hydrochloride, an antihistamine used to reduce a natural chemical, histamine, in the body. Histamine is created by the body, and is responsible for allergy symptoms like sneezing, coughing, eye irritation, nasal congestion and runny nose.[2] Allegra® was approved by the FDA in 1996, and is currently manufactured by the pharmaceutical company Sanofi.[8]


Common side effects that may be associated with Allegra® include:[2]

  • Headaches
  • Muscle or back pain
  • Drowsiness
  • Nausea
  • Diarrhea
  • Upset stomach
  • Coughing
