Discussions that mention allegra

Allergies board


I was just prescrebed Allegra 180mg. I want to know if I can cut them in half? I am very sensitive to medication so I usually cut them in half the first time I take them. It is better than having a reaction that lasts along time. Please reply so I can take the medication and hopefully feel better! I hope everyone is feeling ok today!
I don't see why not, but if you are really concerned there is a twice daily Allegra available. I think each pill is 60mg, but I'm not sure.

Allegra should NOT be cut.
I too am sensitive to meds and can't take the small allegra even twice a day, have to only take it once a day or I get splitting headache. My pharmacy told me I could cut it in half and take half in am and half in pm,,,,, oh my! I ended up with a heart rate of 103 and severe fatigue all day,,,, threw away the other half and will never try THAT again!!! And even the pharmacy says you can't cut allegra-d in half.
