Telfast is a prescription-only oral antihistamine used to treat the symptoms of hay fever. It is effective at treating symptoms such as sneezing and a runny and itchy nose. Because it is a non-drowsy medicine, it is less likely to make you feel sleepy or affect your ability to drive compared to older antihistamines.
Does Telfast treat the underlying causes of hay fever?
No. Telfast can help you manage the severity of hay fever symptoms, but will not treat the underlying cause which is an allergy.
Other antihistamine tablets to treat hay fever are available to purchase over the counter in pharmacies. Simple measures such as wearing wrap-around sunglasses, keeping windows closed or having a shower and washing your hair after a day out to remove pollen grains trapped on skin and hair, can also help minimise the symptoms of hay fever. Your local LloydsPharmacy store will also have a range of eye-drops and nasal sprays which may be suitable to use with Telfast 120mg. Ask your pharmacist for advice.
