View Full Version : does Allegra make you sleepy?

In the past all the antihistamines I took made me so sleepy & feel so bad I couldn't function. I just wanted to see how this effected you b/4 I start on a regular dose. I took part of a dose this a.m. & I may be imagining it but seems I am having more frequency altho I have been in a flare up for couple days. It's hard to tell.Thanks.

I asked my pharmacist about that and he said that the higher doses of the timed release one do tend to make one feel a bit sleepy. He said this is less likely to happen at lower dose. Also said that this side effect usually goes away after a week or two...

I take allegra and don't find that it makes me tired at all. But, I've been taking it for years.

I've been taking Allegra 180 for years and it does not make me sleepy.

Allegra doesn't make me sleepy. If anything, it has the opposite effect! Hope it works for you. Best wishes!
