Nice find, just ordered the same. Thanks

Website is incredibly slow even at 12.45am. Just ordered some as a bargain price. Thanks.

Has to be the worst web site trader - took an age to complete. Lots of web internal errors on the way, too. Good deal though.

I've been using cetirizine every spring for years. But last year I went to my GP, and found they have MUCH more effective treatments now. There are some great nasal spray options available, with fewer side effects. I had year free from the dreaded runny nose thanks to better meds. Try it!

Can you be more specific? What did they give you?

Not all doctors will prescribe the same medicines.

be careful of short expiry dates

Thanks op ordered.

We have bought these before when on the same/similar offer. The tablets work for us as u like others they don't make us sleepy!

Thanks op.

Great deal. Frustrating ordering process though.

Will order some later on

Just to give people a warning about these.

I have been taking this for the past 10 years during the summer for hayfever relief. About 6 years ago I stopped taking them when the summer was over and started to get really bad full body itching. The only thing that stopped it was taking these.

I thought I was having a allergic reaction with some food. So I just carried on taking a cetrizine everyday. That was 6 years ago. Now if I forget to take a tablet one day the next day I will get this itching.

It was only a few weeks ago I decided to google this to find tons and tons and other people are in the same boat. The itching is withdrawal from this medicine. It's been just under a week since my last pill now and I am itching like crazy but I am told that if I just ride it out it will eventually stop.

Reading further into these also they seem to have strong side effects with your mood. A lot of people are complaining of severe mood swings.

They may sell out. Took ten minutes but managed to pay via PayPal.

I'm a GP, cetirizine is the first choice tablet to use, beclomethasone (steroid) nasal spray, sold as beconase, is the first choice nasal spray. Both are easy to buy without prescription, so don't go and bother your GP!

6 months supply... It doesn't say how many tablets you get? I'd assume 1 a day so around 180 but can anyone confirm?

what an irony, I just sneezed!

These are 30 tablets to a pack so 180 tablets you are getting

Can anyone who bought these confirm how many they received please?

Each pack has 30 tablets.

Hi - it took me the best part of a year to come off these. I had very similar side effects to what you describe, where if I hadn't taken a tablet for two days the itching would start and get worse and worse until I took another tablet. Like you, for years I assumed I was allergic to something and didn't think to look into the cetrizine being the cause.

When I stopped taking them altogether, apart from the itching, I came out in hives over my back and down my legs for a few weeks.. Doctor prescribed me Fexofenadine which apparently isn't predominantly metabolized by the liver and seemed to help...I also cut down the cetrizine dose to quarter of a tablet for a little while. fast forward a few years and its completely cleared up - no itching and I use eye drops and nasal spray for hay fever now.

Good luck!

Really depends on your needs. I had severe hayfever and general runny nose causing issues for my marathon training. Speak to your gp about what's best for you.

Most will use trial and error though. Just wondering what it was that they prescribed you. I get similar symptoms from dust and cats so wouldn't mind giving it a try.

It sounds like you may have hives. Whatever it was that caused it, manifested itself when you stopped taking anti-histamines, ceterizine happens to be one the of major 1st step treatments. You take them again the itching stops, you stop again for one day you start itching again. This is a usual symptom of hives and sufferers have to take daily doses to prevent symptoms returning.

Ceterizine has a half life of 8 hours and is not addictive both mentally and physically. Saying all this, it is possible that you may have suffered a rare side effect and you should see your GP.

Don't take advice from google and strangers on the Internet, I'm aware of the irony ;), your symptoms may not disappear if you keep riding it out. Definitely see your GP asap to rule out hives or something else involving a ceterizine reaction.

These do work for me, but they make me sleepy..

Sounds normal to myself ceterizine stops the body from making too much histamine I believe- so protects your body from allergies.

I attempted few weeks ago to reduce my dosage to quarter tabs and while I managed not to sneeze or get itchy eyes it did not work fully still got slight Eczema, so tried a tablet every other day again it worked well but then my Eczema flared up still on my leg after few weeks.

I am now back on 1 tablet per day and my Eczema feels much less itchy, I hate eczema since it spreads and now I will have to enjoy what looks like a spilt ink stain on my skin for the next 3-4 years !

So ordered and voted hot.

You didn't show hives when you were taking ceterizine because that was the thing treating, not causing, the hives symptoms. After all its one of the main drugs prescribed to treat hives, others include fexofenadine and loratidine.

Neither fexofenadine or ceterizine is predominantly metabolised by the liver. Unless you were advised by your doctor to continue taking ceterizine, there is no need to do so if you still take the quarter dose. Fexofenadine will continue to prevent your symptoms and if you stop taking it, they will likely return but this doesn't mean you are also allergic to or suffering from withdrawal from fexofenadine. Hope that made sense and glad you sorted it in the end anyway.

Cetirizine works for me with storage dust. I keep sneezing when I forget to take it. I wouldn't know much about loratadine as my GP recommended cetirizine to me.

True but as deal shows, this is £2.89 for 6 months which is 11p per week.

Stapsell has point. You would have to book a GP appointment, get a repeat prescription which would have to be processed every month by your surgery and pharmacist as you will only get 1 months supply each time. Not to mention you going to pick them up each time too. Is it really worth everyone's time, money and effort to save yourself £2.89 for 6 months?

If you think it is then this is probably why the NHS struggles.

Don't waste your time with antihistamines!

Just drink half a bottle of vodka first thing in the morning - you'll still have the allergies, but won't give a hoot about them ;-)

I was half joking. But if you're on long term medication anyway, then some of the things you've mentioned wouldn't apply. And I was referring to the GP saying that there are several medications available easily, not necessarily cheaply and not necessarily the ones on this particular offer. And the NHS is not "probably struggling" because of free prescriptions or people that are legitimately entitled to them. That's down to decades of mismanagement and internal & political corruption.

try loratadine I had the same problem like you. Boots own brand loratadine is a pound . Youl notice benadryl, pritize etc the active ingredient is cetrizine or loratadine. no need to buy in bulk. Also it's better to take them in the night when you have hayfever can't tell you why but it works

Bought 12 months worth which were delivered on Saturday.
Another 6 months worth arrived today. Brucey bonus!

Up to 2.99 now (still good), but free delivery code has expired. Cheapest delivery is £3.19

Thanks! Just bought these for my wife who has severe hayfever. £2.89 delivered!

I just bought 18 months for £8.67 incl free delivery! Thanks OP!
