Fenox tablet: Each film coated tablet contains Fexofenadine Hydrochloride USP 120 mg.

Fexofenadine Hydrochloride is an antihistamine with selective peripheral H1-receptor antagonist activity. This leads to relief of the allergic symptoms. Unlike most other antihistamines, Fexofenadine does not cross Blood Brain Barrier, and therefore, does not cause drowsiness.
