I have been watching for this for several months, because I thought that my insurance company would stop paying for fexofenadine (the generic of Allegra) once the brand-name product became available without a prescription.

As it turned out, my insurance continued to cover it, which I appreciated because my co-payment was a lot less than the price of OTC Allegra ($26 around here). But the pharmacist told me when I picked up a refill recently that it would probably be the last, because their supplier, Teva Pharmaceuticals, had stopped shipping it.

Walgreens had advertised their house brand of fexofenadine more than a month ago, but didn't actually stock it then (I'm guessing that Sanofi-Aventis petitioned to block it). Anyway, it's in stock now, at $12.99 for 30 tablets; this week there's a $3 check-out coupon when you buy it.
