Side Effects
Did nothing for my allergies. After a day or two, started experiences a severe tightness in my neck. I just thought I slept wrong or something. By day 5, my ear began to feel very full, like I was on a plane. Two days later, I looked at the side-effects. So many people experienced a severe stiff neck. Allegra even lists earaches and ear infections as a side effect. Stopped taking it at day 9. Neck pain went right away. The ear is still getting better each day (day 6 off). My doctor said it may take up to 2 weeks to feel back to normal. Never will take again.

Reason: Hay fever Date: 16 September 2009
Side Effects
I had been taking Allegra for a few years to get my hay fever under control. It controlled all of my allergies fairly well, until I got a bad cold. Then everything went haywire. My sinuses wouldn't unclog; the pressure in my ears was dreadful. I got tinnitus in my right ear and have noticeable loss of hearing - still (6 months later). So...I went off of Allegra. My body really didn't like that - although my hay fever was fairly subdue, I got dry scaly spots all over my body. And I am having allergic reactions to things that I have never reacted to before.

Additional Thoughts
I think anything long term just screws up your body. Thank goodness that I am off Allegra. It worked well for a while - but not for a long period of time.

Reason: Allergic conjunctivitis Date: 4 July 2008
Side Effects
Took Allegra for whole of spring, experienced low back ache and stomach upset on and off.Had couple of severe stomach pain episode.Stopped Allegra after Spring, the symptoms are taking time to get resolved, but definitely feeling much better. Allegra did help to control allergy symptoms effectively though.

Additional Thoughts
Would not want to go back to Allegra once more as it a trade in of stomach upset and backache for curbing the allergy syptoms.
