About Telfast/Fexofenadine Tablets

Fexofenadine tablets provide quick and effective relief from the symptoms of allergic rhinitis. These symptoms include; sneezing, congestion, and a runny nose. It has proven an effective treatment for pollen allergies (hay fever), as well as allergies to common household irritants, such as dust mites and pet dander.

Allergic rhinitis is a very common condition and is caused by an overly sensitive immune system. When a harmless allergen, such as pollen, enters the nose, the immune system mistakenly reacts to it, believing it to be something more serious, such as an infection. To protect against this supposed infection, the body will start to produce more mucus, which will lead to nasal congestion and sneezing. For some people, these symptoms are only experienced during the high pollen season. This form of rhinitis is known as hay fever, or seasonal rhinitis. For other allergy sufferers, where the symptoms are triggered by household irritants, such as dust mites and animal dander, the symptoms can be experienced all year round.

If additional allergy relief is needed, Fexofenadine tablets can be taken alongside a nasal spray or eye drops. Fexofenadine is generally a non-drowsy antihistamine, but may cause drowsiness in some people. For this reason, it is advised to take care if driving or operating machinery whilst taking it.

What is Fexofenadine Telfast?

Fexofenadine Telfast is a non-drowsy antihistamine medication used for seasonal allergic rhinitis (hay fever) and chronic urticaria (hives). Hay fever is caused by the exposure to pollen against which some of the immune systems are vulnerable and hence causes allergic reactions. These reactions are the result of pollen infiltrate into histamine - a chemical released by the cells in the lining of eyes and nose. 

The Histamine then begins to cause swelling and inflammation, which induces spells of sneezing and runny or clogged nose. It can also result in eye inflammation, redness, or itching known as allergic conjunctivitis.

The condition where one has a severely itchy skin with prominent rashes is called Urticaria. There can be various factors causing the rash including allergies or a specific medical condition. However, when the cause cannot be diagnosed, and the rashes sustain for longer than six weeks, it is considered as chronic urticaria.

Fexofenadine is an antihistamine medicine given to prevent the effect of histamine so that the allergic symptoms could be reduced. In addition to that, the medicine is also used to treat symptoms of rashes, which are termed as chronic urticaria.

How Does Fexofenadine Work?

Fexofenadine is an antihistamine that is specifically effective on peripheral histamine-1 (H-1) receptors found at the outer edges of the spinal cord and brain. As the medicines deal with peripheral histamine receptors, it is non-drowsy and works more effectively than older versions of various antihistamines.

Histamine is a chemical that is discharged by mast cells when triggered by an allergen. The chemical causes numerable allergic reactions, for example, soaring the mucous membranes, continuous sneezing, and itchy nose and eyes blocked nose etc. Fexofenadine restricts histamine receptors to react to the pollen particles and hence restrains and reduces the symptoms of an allergic reaction.

Fexofenadine is included in the assortment of drugs identified as antihistamines. Fexofenadine is also called an H1-antihistamine, an advanced version of antihistamine, or a non-sedative antihistamine.

What Are the Benefits of Taking Fexofenadine?

Fexofenadine helps control the allergic reactions in hay fever, conjunctivitis (red, itchy eye), eczema, hives (urticaria), reactions to insect bites and stings, some food allergies

Fexofenadine helps in:

  • Treating seasonal allergic rhinitis or other allergies related to the upper respiratory system.
  • Regulating symptoms such as itching nose and eyes, intense sneezing, teary eyes, and runny nose.
  • Relieving symptoms that occur as a result of chronic urticaria (hives) which may involve redness, itchy skin with bumps, s, or blemishes on the skin.
  • Reducing reactions of allergic conjunctivitis, bug bites, and various allergic skin ailments.

Hay fever isn’t considered as a serious threat, however, if it is left untreated or if the intensity increases, it can have crucial effects on health - reducing the quality of life. Hay fever when gone bad also transforms into inflammation of the sinuses (sinusitis). A middle ear infection called otitis media can also be an unfortunate effect of extreme hay fever in children.
