What is Treathay and what is it used for?
Fexofenadine, the active ingredient in Treathay, is a medication that belongs to a class of drugs called antihistamines. It is commonly used to relieve allergy symptoms associated with seasonal allergic rhinitis, such as runny nose, sneezing, red and itchy eyes, and itching of the nose, throat, or roof of the mouth. Additionally, fexofenadine is used to alleviate symptoms of urticaria, including itching and rash. It can be taken by adults and children who are at least 2 years old for allergic rhinitis and 6 months old for urticaria.
How does Treathay work?
Treathay works by blocking the effects of histamine in the body. Histamine is a substance produced by the immune system in response to an allergen, such as pollen or pet dander. Histamine causes various allergic symptoms, such as itching, sneezing, and runny nose. By blocking the effects of histamine, fexofenadine helps to alleviate the symptoms of seasonal allergic rhinitis and urticaria.
Can Treathay be taken with other medications?
Treathay can interact with other medications, so it is important to talk to a healthcare provider before taking it with other drugs. For example, it may interact with erythromycin, ketoconazole, or other medications that can affect liver function. Fexofenadine may also interact with other antihistamines or central nervous system depressants, such as alcohol. A healthcare provider can help determine whether fexofenadine is safe to take with other medications.
