What exactly is Telfast?
Telfast is an antihistamine that relieves the symptoms of allergic rhinitis, popularly known as hay fever, quickly and effectively.
Hay fever is caused by histamine, a substance produced by the body in response to an allergen such as pollen or dust. This produces irritation, which results in hay fever symptoms.
Telfast is effective at preventing this because it contains the antihistamine fexofenadine hydrochloride. This means that it prevents histamine from creating hay fever symptoms. It comes in 120mg and 180mg dosages.
What is the purpose of Telfast tablets?
Telfast is most typically used to treat hay fever symptoms. It is, however, beneficial against other allergens, such as dust mites and pet dander, because it contains the antihistamine fexofenadine hydrochloride.
Telfast pills can be used in conjunction with a nasal spray or eye drops to provide extra allergy relief. You may discover that the combo provides more hay fever relief than either medication alone.

Alternatives to Telfast
There are some non-medicinal approaches to help you combat allergy symptoms, such as:
Wrap-around sunglasses are being worn.
Keeping windows closed on pollen-filled days.
As soon as you get home, take a shower. This will eliminate any pollen grains that have become caught in your hair or skin.
You can also try various prescription or over-the-counter medications, such as:
Cetirizine and loratadine are examples of over-the-counter medications.
Antihistamines on prescription, such as desloratadine or levocetirizine
Optilast and other prescription eye drops
Opticrom, a non-prescription eye drop
Nasal sprays on prescription, such as Dymista
Nasal sprays sold over the counter, such as Beclometasone Nasal Spray
You should try these first before switching to a prescription-only medication.
High blood pressure and fexofenadine hydrochloride
There is no relationship between fexofenadine hydrochloride and hypertension.
Alcohol and antihistamines
Because alcohol is known to exacerbate the negative effects of fexofenadine hydrochloride, it should be avoided when taking Telfast. If you must use antihistamines, do so in moderation and continue to monitor your reactions.
Asthma and fexofenadine hydrochloride
Asthmatics can often take antihistamines such as Telfast. However, in some situations, they can induce negative effects. If you have any negative side effects, contact your pharmacist or doctor right away.
Breastfeeding and pregnancy
Women who are pregnant or breastfeeding should not use fexofenadine hydrochloride unless they have first consulted with their doctor. Otherwise, try an alternative medication such as eye drops or nasal spray instead.
