Telfast Allergy Relief Tablets 30's
Telfast tablets contain an ingredient called fexofenadine hydrochloride, which belongs to a group of medications called antihistamines. When you have an allergic reaction such as hayfever, your immune system causes your body to release a chemical called histamine which causes unpleasant hayfever symptoms. Antihistamines prevent the allergic reaction.
Directions for use:
The dose for adults and children over the age of 12 is one tablet once a day. You should be advised that this treatment isn’t suitable for children under the age of 12.
