BLEXTEN 20MG (30 TABS)

Generic Name: bilastine
Brand Name: Blexten
Drug class: antihistamines



WHAT IS THE DOSAGE OF THIS MEDICATION?

Blexten is available as a 20mg tablet, 10mg oral disintegrating tablet pediatric dose, and a 2.5mg/mL oral solution pediatric dose.


WHAT IS THIS MEDICATION USED FOR?

Blexten is a second-generation antihistamine, a class of drugs used to treat symptoms of seasonal allergies including sneezing, itchy/runny nose, itchiness, red/watery eyes, skin rash and irritations, insomnia, and nausea. Blexten is also used to relieve symptoms associated with allergic skin conditions, including chronic hives and itching. The main difference between first-generation and second-generation antihistamines is that the latter do not cause sleepiness and are considered safer because they interact better with other medications.

Blexten works to treat the symptoms of allergic responses by blocking the release of one of the body's natural chemicals known as histamine. Histamine is a chemical created by your immune system to counteract allergens in the body and is responsible for many of the symptoms of an allergic reaction. Histamine causes vessels to swell and dilate, leading to allergy symptoms. The effects of Blexten may be noticed as early as one hour after taking this medication and last approximately 24 hours.

Most common allergens:
-Food
-Dust
-Pollen
-Pet dander, saliva or urine
-Mold
-Insect bites and stings
-Latex
-Certain medications/drugs

The recommended dose of this medication for adults and children 12 years of age and older is 1 tablet (20 mg) taken by mouth, once a day.

Children 4 to 11 years of age should be given 10 mg, either as an oral disintegrating tablet or oral solution.

The oral disintegrating tablet should be placed in the mouth and allowed to dissolve. It may also be dissolved in a small amount of water before drinking the water.

The oral solution comes with a measuring cup to accurately measure 4 mL, the amount of solution needed for a 10 mg dose.

Bilastine should be taken with water on an empty stomach one hour before eating or two hours after eating for the best effect. Food, grapefruit juice and other juices can reduce how well this medication works.

Many things can affect the dose of medication that a person needs, such as body weight, other medical conditions, and other medications. If your doctor has recommended a dose different from the ones listed here, do not change the way that you are taking the medication without consulting your doctor. It is important to take this medication exactly as prescribed by your doctor. If you miss a dose, skip the missed dose and continue with your regular dosing schedule. Do not take a double dose to make up for a missed one. If you are not sure what to do after missing a dose, contact your doctor or pharmacist for advice.

Store this medication at room temperature, protect it from light and moisture, and keep it out of the reach of children. Do not dispose of medications in wastewater (e.g. down the sink or in the toilet) or in household garbage. Ask your pharmacist how to dispose of medications that are no longer needed or have expired.
