Telfast isn’t a drug that you hear about everyday, but this drug does wonders for allergies without the drowsiness most other anti-histamines have. The active ingredient in Telfast is fexofenadine, which is a kind of anti-histamine that is non-sedating. Fexofenadine doesn’t affect the mind as much as other drugs, so the one taking it doesn’t feel drowsy. This makes Telfast more convenient for people who want to put in a full days work and stop their allergies at the same time.

Anti-histamines usually prevent the symptoms of histamine, which the body produces as a defense against allergies. Histamine, while don’t its job defending your body produces symptoms like runny noses and rashes. Anti-histamines counter the symptoms of histamine, most have a sleeping-pill effect. However, Telfast is a non-sedating anti-histamine so that means that there is no drowsiness when you take this drug.
