What is Telfast?

Telfast is a tablet medication which can be used to treat various allergy-related illnesses. It is an antihistamine which can be used for dealing with allergic rhinitis (also known as hay fever) or for treating allergic skin reactions (also known as chronic idiopathic urticaria or hives). Telfast is a branded version of the popular allergy medicine called Fexofenadine. The name and appearance of the tablets may be different, but Telfast works in the same way as generic Fexofenadine and is equally as effective.

How does Telfast work?

Telfast contains fexofenadine hydrochloride which is a type of non-sedating antihistamine. It treats allergies by preventing a natural substance in the body called histamine from acting on receptors in the cells which normally trigger symptoms associated with allergy-related conditions.

When hay fever occurs, histamine usually causes inflammation of the nose, eyes or airways, leading to symptoms such as a blocked or runny nose, itchy and watery eyes and sneezing. In allergic skin reactions, histamine causes the skin to be itchy, inflamed or form rashes.

How do I take Telfast?

The typical recommended dose for adults and children aged 12 years and over is one tablet daily. The tablet should preferably be taken with water before a meal. The medication should start to relieve your symptoms within one hour and lasts for 24 hours.

When treating allergic rhinitis, your doctor may suggest taking a dose only when needed in order to suppress occasional allergy symptoms. Always take your medicine in the way your doctor instructs you to.

What if I take too much or too little Telfast?

If you take more tablets than you are meant to in one dose, then you should contact your doctor or nearest hospital emergency department immediately. Potential symptoms of an overdose can include dizziness, drowsiness, fatigue and dry mouth.

If you miss a dose of this medicine because you forgot, then just take the next one at the usual time. Never take a double dose of Telfast to make up for a forgotten tablet.

Is it safe for me to use Telfast?

Telfast is meant to be used for treating allergies, but certain circumstances regarding your health may need assessing before determining if it’s ok for you to take this medication. You should speak to your doctor or pharmacist as a precaution if any of the following applies:

  • You have problems with your liver or kidneys
  • You have or have previously experienced heart disease
  • You are pregnant or breastfeeding
  • You are elderly

Telfast is meant for use by adults and adolescents aged 12 or above when treating skin allergies, or by people aged 6 or above when treating hay fever. Consult your doctor or pharmacist if you’re unsure about the correct dose for yourself or your children.

Can I use other allergy medicines with Telfast?

If you are experiencing a skin allergy which is causing a severe and itchy rash, then your doctor may recommend taking two different antihistamines together. As well as being prescribed a non-drowsy antihistamine like Telfast/Fexofenadine, your doctor may also suggest using a sedating antihistamine at the same time. An example of a sedating antihistamine is Piriton (chlorphenamine).

Telfast side effects

It is possible to experience side effects as a result of using Telfast, but not all patients experience them. If after taking Telfast you experience swelling of the face, mouth, tongue or throat or have difficulty breathing, then you should stop taking Telfast and contact a doctor immediately. Such symptoms could be signs of a serious allergic reaction. Happily, allergic reactions are very rare among people who use this medication.

The most common of the potential side effects include the following:

  • Headache
  • Drowsiness
  • Nausea
  • Dizziness

Various other side effects are possible but also less common. You should tell your doctor or pharmacist if you experience any which are particularly alarming.

Can I drive when taking Telfast?

In normal circumstances, you should be ok to drive after taking Telfast since it is a non-drowsy antihistamine. However, some of the potential side effects which can occur after taking this medication include drowsiness and dizziness, and if you experience these it would be unwise to drive. You should also avoid driving if you are instructed to take a sedating antihistamine in combination with Telfast.
