It's not quite hayfever season, but it's not far a way.

Found Asda Cetirizine Dihydrochloride knocked down to 20p for a pack of 7.
These normally retail for 89p in Asda or triple that it you buy the branded ones.

Stock up now for the summer. Use by dates were March 2010

Wife and stepson used these last year and worked as well as the expensive ones.

Voted hot, might have to stock up for them next time I go near an Asda!

check the use by dates though if you are buying to store.

Good point, I'd have thought they should be good for a couple of years from manufacture though, so if they are last years then I'd like to think you'd get another summer out of them.

More than prepared to admit if i'm wrong however:whistling:

Maybe it's an allergy to something else? That's incredibly early for it to start - poor you!

There is a fair amount of blossom on trees though, if you happen to be susceptible to that!

Good find - thank you
#10
Good spot, cheers for the heads up. I find these work better than the more expensive ones for some reason.
#11
Excellent find - thank you - I have to take them ALL the time so will definitely stock up tonight

:p ... I still take medication in our cabinet that is dated from the 90's ... I think it's just a scam to get us to throw away the stuff hehe ... look at eye drops. 30 days then toss it they say ... pass on that plan!! 3 years down the line and they still work just as well when needed.

Voted hot tho' :thumbsup:

Understand where you're coming from ... but from what I understand, though the risk of complications is small, the downside of complications from eye drops is potentially very serious indeed and I personally would never play the risky game with eye drops. Aspirin yes, but I'm not going to mess with my eyes.

These hay fever pils - just be wary - if they are the ones similar to pirition, they REALLY send me to sleep and for daytime use I'd rather pay a bit more. Still voted hot though.

Cetirizine hydrochloride is one of the ones that can make some people a little drowsy, but most people don't are fine with them as it's not the same active ingrediant as Piriton which is Chlorphenamine, one of the first generation anti-histamines.

Loratidine is the best (cheap) non-drowsy anti-histamine to use if even cetirizine makes you sleepy.

Now that would be all wrong, the bread would be crispy and the crisps would be soggy...I don't think I'll bother with lunch after that image...
#17
Cetirizine hydrochloride is a Type 1 antihistamine so as well as treating allergies they can also be used to control the symptoms of the common cold. That's my tuppence worth.
#18
Just bought a load for 20p. Thanks for this tip. I use them daily so you have saved me a fortune. Voted hot.
#19
great deal ...if you have hayfever!
#20
WOw. That is cheap!
#21
Agreed. Loratidine is also in my opinion the most effective one. Cetirizine hydrochloride is a good second best. I think thats what Benelyn has.
#22
I tend to rotate between Loratadine and Cetirizine hydrochloride. Changing every month or so.

I dont know if it's true but i heard that taking the same thing day after day makes you de-sensitised to it. So a change to another type sort of resets this.

Having said that I find Loratadine to be generally more effective and of course it is non drowsy.
But I have had no experience of drowsiness with other types anyhow.

Of course I wouldn't bother with any brand names. Supermarket branded are the same thing for a lot less money.

Cetirizine Dihydrochloride is the active ingredient of Zirtek

NPC description: Cetirizine is a second-generation anti-histamine, which is usually taken in a one-a-day tablet. There is no known difference between hydrochloride and dihydrochloride types. Levocetirizine is a slightly rearranged third-generation version of the drug, which is known to be just as effective. However, studies have proved inconclusive regarding whether it is actually any better.
#24
Good find, will be buying loads :thumbsup:
#25
do you think it would be cheaper buying a load of these...or getting a big batch on prescription from the Drs? I remember last year that i said to the doctor that i am going away for the summer, so will need a load to get me through...gave me 3 months worth for the cost of a prescription...
#26
actually ignore that...this deal is way better! HOT!
