Thanks for posting the query

There is no harm if two tablets of fexofenadine (Allegra) are taken together. But, as you mentioned there will some side effects such as dryness of the nasal and oral mucosa, dizziness and nasal crusting.

Do not worry! You need to drink plenty of water, to keep the mucosa moist. Also, avoid taking Fexofenadine tomorrow. You can continue the same from 3rd day onward.

Hope this answers your query; I will be available for the follow-up queries.
