This deal is expired. Here are some options that might interest you:

Ordered these on Monday delivered Friday. Allacan (UK Brand) , Bristol Laboratories Ltd, Berkhamstead, HP4 1EG. Expiry date 08/2021 These are the generic form of Zyrtec.
All good , a real bargain. Thought they'd just sent 6 packs at first but to save space they'd packed 4 x15 tablet foils into each box, also mean't the package fitted through my letter box.
The seller is registered with the Governments Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) to sell medicines online.medicine-seller-register.mhra.gov.uk/sea…568 Thanks for that qbs

This is sold by someone with a customer care address of 284 Fletcher Road Preston Lancashire PR1 5HJ. This is the place of business.

So essentially someones home address. After seeing the various reports (on fake Britian) of fake medication being sold on ebay; I wouldnt touch this with a bargepole. God only knows what you are buying and ingesting. Or worse still, as a poster mentioned, giving to their grandchildren.

Think about it. Postage at a minimum is around £2. So one years supply of generic Cetrizine for £3.95. And then this person is making a profit/living out of selling these as well- so say £1. And then there is ebay and paypal fees. Which company can make tablets at this price (0.8p per tablet)? Certainly not a British company. So why is this so cheap???

Me thinks you may be watching too much telly. I have bought before , they are genuine . Chemists for you also usually sell for a similar price on eBay. Be leave me you'd soon know if you have an allergy and were taking fakes. You pay £4 at Boots for a weeks supply of Zyrtec if you want.

Thanks yorkie12 - Just happened to be good timing for me!
If cetirizine doesn’t work for you, use Loratadine seems to work better for me , usually a green packet as oppose to blue

Your choice. I am an NHS physician and personally see the side effects on fake medication in A&E. That is not the same as telly is it? Now these may not contain anything toxic, but I dont know and I certainly wouldnt recommend buying these as a safe option. I cannot even source these at this price in a developing market like India.

Could I ask how you know these are genuine? Have you sent a sample to the manufacturer to confirm authenticity? That is the only way to know.

Well for a few years now I've been saving the NHS pounds by buying my own Cetirizine . I was put onto it by a local supermarket pharmacist ,at the time, who sold me a 30 pack for 90p instead of the full prescription price. If I miss taking a tablet I don't get far into the day before I begin to suffer symptoms so if they were fake I'd soon be aware of it. Obviously they must be cheaper to produce than you think. The packs I have even have the Braille embossed on them and each tablet is marked BL , presume Bristol Laboratories. If I was making fakes I'd go for the Branded Zyrtec for maximum profit not make a 3p pill for 1p. This company have been selling pharmacy products on eBay for over four years with 99.7% feedback , the few negatives are more about delivery problems than anything else. Mind you there was one guy who was struggling to insert their suppositories

Like I said, your choice to do so. If I were to do it. I would buy a test sample, send it off to the manufacturer to confirm authenticity. That has 2 advantages for a very small postage fee. It confirms you have a genuine product and if not can be used to shut down someone selling fake medication.

With regards to being cheaper to produce. A 30 pack for 90p is 3p per tab. That seems ok. You can source it from developing countries for 1 -1.5p per tab. The one you posted is around 0.8p per tab or lower depending on seller's profit. And claims to be made in the UK. That is 75% cheaper than what you got from a pharmacist. And supermarkets sell generics at a very low price to start with anyway. Anyway, the point I am making is that you may experience symptom relief even from using a fake medication. But that is because they have used a much cheaper anti histamine in the tab instead of Cetirizine. So perhaps chlorpheniramine or something else. Fake medication manufacturers are not silly to simply sell you a blank tablet. They will contain something. The question is what, how much, how clean/purified and manufacturing conditions.

Well, I am currently taking these, from an Amazon supplier and a certified mhra seller. The box comes with the false medicine directive and it seems ok. So basically, if the pack comes with the fmd and the 2d is readable I am almost sure the product it is ok.

Yes the packs have the full 'Patient information' leaflet with a l description of what the tablets should look like. I don't think fakers would go to all this trouble to make a few pence a packet.

The NHS drug tariff - ie the amount it pays pharmacies for this drug is 85p for 30.
drugtariff.nhsbsa.nhs.uk/

So 2.8p per tablet. That includes sales, marketing, manufacturing, distribution, profit etc. I'd be astonished if the tablets cost more than 0.3p to make.

But whether these are genuine or fake? I've no idea. The seller may work for the manufacturer for all I know.

No reason why not. I ordered some earlier in the week, confident that they'll be no different to others I've had before from other Amazon sellers. They've always been identical to those I've had from my local chemist on prescription, so unless the chemist's buying dodgy drugs.........

Well I cannot find that info on the link provided by the op and what you refer to. The ebay address and the one you provided are very different. This may all be legit and therefore ok; but there are several sellers of fake medication on ebay and even on Amazon. In fact the ebay page calls themselves OBBS group. The link you provided is OBBS limited. OBBS group's website is under construction. So which one is the seller's name or company?

Look, buy what you like. But for me this rings a lot of alarm bells. And all for the sake of a few pounds. By the OP's own admission and other posters, it is 85p for 30 days supply from a supermarket pharmacy. So 12 x £0.85 = £10.2. Personally I would pay a little bit more and buy from a reputable supermarket pharmacy. at least I know I wont be giving my "grand children" something dodgy to save £4.02.

That statement in itself is evidence that you do not understand the counterfeit market. It is easier to counterfeit a daily, non-prescription medication than an expensive prescription medication. OTC meds are the commonest ones that are counterfeited. Because the expensive one will be easily singled out by professionals.

Savers sells 30 for £1, trust them more.
I am not surprised with the low price. I routinely pick up cetirizine when I travel to Asia. In India, I got a pack of 30 for the equivalent of 15p; made by a mega generics manufacturer. Look up Stanhist 10.

Difficult to miss.
Last year I bought and posted a deal for 360 Cetirizine for £6.99. They weren’t fake. The same company is now selling them for a similar price to the seller on this deal. I’d know straightaway if they were fake as my hay fever is really bad. One day with fake meds would affect me badly, but I didn’t have any problems. Hopefully the meds on this post are the same.
You can't judge the authenticity of these based on the price alone. Having worked in the pharma industry for over 20 years, I can tell you now that generic tablets cost peanuts to make. There is nothing complicated in making these tablets and no doubt they are made abroad, most likely India. The license holder may well be a UK company but that doesn't tell you where the were made. So 0.3p per tablet is certainly achievable, especially if the site making the tablet are also supplying other generic companies. Another way of making these cheaper is if the total shelf life remaining is less than 75% of the product shelf life. This is how some generic tablet suppliers survive, by purchasing cheaper shorter shelf life products.
