Fexofenadine is an active metabolite of terfenadine, is a second-generation, long lasting H1-receptor antagonist which has a selective and peripheral H1-antagonistic action. Fexofenadine blocks the H1-receptor and thus prevents activation of cells by histamine in the GI tract, large blood vessels and bronchial smooth muscle. This leads to relief of the allergic symptoms.
