Telfast 60mg Patient Information
What is Telfast?

Telfast tablets contain an active ingredient called "fexofenadine". It is one of a group of medicines called antihistamines.


What is Telfast Used For?

Telfast 60mg is used to relieve the symptoms of seasonal and perennial allergic rhinitis (including hayfever). Telfast works by blocking the action of histamine which causes these unwanted effects. Telfast is a non-sedating antihistamine which means it has been shown not to make you drowsy or slow down your reactions.


Is Telfast Suitable For Me?

Do not take Telfast, and tell your doctor or pharmacist if:

  • You have had an allergic reaction to fexofenadine, terfenadine (Teldane®)or any of the other ingredients in Telfast. These are listed below under “What are the ingredients in Telfast?”
  • The expiry date on the pack has passed. It may have no effect or an unexpected effect if it is taken after this date.
  • The packaging is torn or shows signs of tampering

Before Taking Telfast:

You should inform your pharmacist/doctor if:

  • you are, or might be, pregnant
  • you are breast feeding
  • you have any allergies to any other medicines, foods, preservatives or dyes
  • you are taking other medicines
  • Your pharmacist/doctor will consider these points when recommending Telfast.

    Use in children: There is currently not enough information available to recommend Telfast 60mg for use in children under 12 years of age. Telfast Oral Liquid Kids may be suitable.

How Do I Take Telfast?

Take Telfast with a glass of water. It may be taken with or without food.
For the relief of the symptoms of seasonal and perennial allergic rhinitis (including hayfever) the usual dosage for adults and children over 12 years is one Telfast 60mg tablet twice daily, when required.
Do not take more than the recommended dose and remember, this medicine is for you. Do not give it to anyone else, even if their symptoms seem to be the same as yours.
If Telfast does not relieve your symptoms, do not take extra tablets. Tell your doctor or pharmacist.


What Do I Do In Case Of Overdose?

If you think that you or someone else may have taken too much Telfast - (even if there are no signs of discomfort or poisoning) - contact your doctor or Poisons Information Centre, or go to the Casualty Department at your nearest hospital.


Does Telfast Cause Side Effects?

Tell your doctor or pharmacist as soon as possible if you do not feel well while taking Telfast, even if you do not think the problem is connected with the medicine or is not listed here.

All medicines can cause side effects. Although most people will not experience any, some of the side effects that may occur with Telfast are:

  • headache
  • tiredness
  • nausea
  • indigestion
  • dizziness
  • drowsiness
  • These same effects were seen in patients taking dummy or placebo capsules during the clinical studies.

How Do I Store Telfast?

Keep your tablets in a safe place out of the reach of children. Store the tablets at room temperature below 30 degrees C.

Disposal: Return any unwanted tablets to your pharmacist.


What Does Telfast Look Like?

Telfast 60mg tablets are peach coloured oval shaped tablets.
Telfast 60mg is available in blister packs of 10 or 20 tablets.


What Are The Ingredients In Telfast?

Each Telfast 60mg tablet contains 60mg of the active ingredient fexofenadine hydrochloride.
