Written by ColleenO, ritasharma.

Decongestants and antihistamines complement each other well in allergic rhinitis treatment and are combined in some prescription medicines, including:

  • Fexofenadine and pseudoephedrine (Allegra-D)
  • Acrivastine and pseudoephedrine (Semprex-D)
  • Azatadine and pseudoephedrine (Trinalin)

Effect of Oral Decongestant and Antihistamine Combinations on Allergic Rhinitis
