What is Fexofenadine?

Fexofenadine belongs to the class of antihistamines. It is a selective H1-antagonist for the symptomatic treatment of seasonal allergic rhinitis and chronic idiopathic urticaria. It got its FDA approval in 1996. 

What are the uses of Fexofenadine? : Diseases or Health Issues treated by Fexofenadine 

Fexofenadine is often used as an antiallergic drug. Mostly, it gets prescribed to treat the following conditions: 

  • Allergic Rhinitis (AR)
  • Chronic Idiopathic Urticaria
  • Seasonal Allergic Rhinitis

How does Fexofenadine work?

Fexofenadine works selectively on histamine-1 receptors that are located in our body, other than the central nervous system and are called peripheral histamine receptors. 

As it acts on these receptors, it is less likely to cause drowsiness compared with some older antihistamines. 

Fexofenadine is known to bind to the histamine receptors and prevent histamine from having an effect on those receptors, which reduces allergy symptoms.

How long does Fexofenadine take for the onset of action?

This medicine gets absorbed rapidly which allows an onset of action within one to three hours approximately.
