Advice & Tips: I was on the Allegra D at one point and I was still having terriable allergy symptoms and my FNP said that it was probably a rebound effect from the D part of the Allegra. Plus it was very expensive- the regular Allegra is much cheaper and I dont seem to have those rebound effects anymore

  • Effectiveness
    Moderate (for Seasonal allergy symptoms)
  • side effects
    None
  • Adherence
    Always
  • Burden
    Not at all hard to take
Dosage: 180 mg Daily
Advice & Tips: I believe that going off of the Allegra was a good thing. I had been taking it close to 7-years and I feel the effectiveness had decreased. The only bad experience I had with this drug was when I had to do a drug screening for a new emloyer. This medication actually has varied forms of amphedamine (not sure if spelled correct) and so the test came back as dirty. Caused me to lose the job. Other factors were involved as well. Such as this was the first pee after taking it in the morning which is where the greatest amount of the drug is expelled. Oh well, it was probably for the better.
