Hi Doctor,

No , i took only two tablets. After that, this itching started, so stopped taking novalclox at that time itself. Now, am consuming allegra 120 for alternative days for this itching issue.

Brief Answer:
specific

Detailed Answer:
Allegra needs to be taken daily, not alternate days.
Usually once a night is enough.
Usually a 3 days course is enough.
If it persists beyond that, I prefer to send my patients to a dermatologist to make sure there is no underlying skin condition.
