Abstract

The present study was designed to evaluate the efficacy of fexofenadine in the Indian population suffering from allergic rhinitis and chronic urticaria. A total number of two hundred patients of either sex with similar demographic profile were included in the study according to inclusion and exclusion criteria. These patients were treated with fexofenadine 120mg once daily for allergic rhinitis and fexofenadine 180mg for chronic urticaria for 7 days. The efficacy was evaluated on the basis of symptoms evaluation scale score and medication effectiveness scale score at baseline, on the 3rd day and on the 7th day of completion of treatment. Results indicate that fexofenadine is highly effective in the Indian population (p<0.001) suffering from allergic rhinitis and chronic urticaria.
