Please note, this OEL/ADE monograph also applies to fexofenadine HCl (CAS RN 153439-40-8). In addition, this monograph contains the pediatric ADE. Fexofenadine, the active metabolite of terfenadine, is indicated for chronic hives and seasonal allergic runny nose. Fexofenadine, the active metabolite of terfenadine, is a long lasting H1-receptor antagonist (antihistamine). Fexofenadine inhibits the release of histamine from mast cells and selectively antagonizes peripheral H1-receptor activity in the GI tract, large blood vessels, and bronchial smooth muscle, thereby blocking the action of histamine that leads to nasal congestion, runny nose, and other allergic reaction symptoms. It does not enter the brain, unlike most other antihistamines, and therefore, does not cause drowsiness; it also lacks the cardiotoxic potential of its parent drug, terfenadine.
