Why can't fruit juices be taken with the allergy medication Allegra ? How long after taking Allegra would be considered safe to drink fruit juices ?

Here's the info I found (from rxlist.com):

"Taking fexofenadine with apple, grapefruit, or orange juice may decrease the absorption of this drug. Try to avoid taking fexofenadine with these types of fruit juices. If possible, take this drug with water instead."It's pretty common for grapefruit juice in particular to interact with medications, making them more or less potent depending on the particular drug. You might want to avoid drinking those types of fruit juices while taking Allegra. My own practice is to avoid grapefruit juice completely, just to be safe.

Hope this helps. Take care and good luck. Judy
