Active ingredient present in Generic Allegra is Fexofenadine which belongs to the category of third generation anti-histamines and selectively inhibits H1-receptors. This blockade of H1 receptors prevents the binding of histamine and its subsequent action on the body which leads to allergic reaction. Non-sedating action of Fexofenadine is due to the fact that it is unable to cross the brain and hence, does not exhibit the side-effect of drowsiness as compared other previous generation anti-histamines.
