Telfast is a prescription-only, non-sedating antihistamine which is used to treat allergic rhinitis (hayfever) in adults.
Telfast is a brand of fexofenadine and is available in 120 mg or 180 mg tablets.
You can get Telfast hayfever tablets online from Prescription Doctor, following a short consultation with one of our doctor's.
If your order is approved before 3pm, Mon to Fri, our UK based pharmacy can dispense and dispatch your medicine the same day, aimed for a next day delivery.
Allergic reactions, like hayfever, happen when the immune system overreacts to a substance in the body. For hayfever, this substance is an airborne allergen, such as grass or tree pollen.
The immune system responds by releasing a chemical called histamine. The histamine causes cold-like symptoms such as red, itchy eyes, a runny nose, or a skin rash.
Telfast treats seasonal hayfever which is caused by triggers such as:
Hayfever season usually begins in late March and continues until September. Depending on the type of pollen you are allergic to, your hayfever symptoms may last longer than others.
Telfast is not the right choice for year-round allergies from common indoor triggers like pet dander.
Seasonal hayfever interferes with daily activities and disrupts sleep. It is essential that you talk to your doctor about your symptoms and treatment options.
It can also exacerbate other conditions such as asthma or chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). Left untreated, hayfever can lead to complications such as sinusitis, an infection which causes inflammation in the sinus cavities or otitis media of the nose, or an ear infection.
Telfast contains fexofenadine hydrochloride, a non-sedating (non-drowsy) antihistamine that works to counter the effects of a chemical produced in the body called histamine.
The medication acts on the histamine receptors to prevent the histamine from producing common symptoms of hay fever.
Telfast typically works within 30 minutes to an hour after taking the medication and lasts 24 hours.
You must read the patient information leaflet before taking Telfast.
Follow your doctor's instruction for taking Telfast.
The typical dose is one tablet per day (120 mg or 180 mg).
Swallow the tablet whole with a full glass of water before a meal.
If you forget to take Telfast, skip the missed dose and take the next dose at the usual time.
Do not double up on doses in an attempt to make up the missed one.
Taking too much Telfast can lead to serious complications.
