They really rip you off come hayfever season, really unfair, so best to buy in preparation!.

Cheers ordered loratadine for OH as it's usually really expensive compared to other ones

Better check if I have any left from last years HUKD hay fever deals.

CHEERS for posting op.

The last i bought over a year and half back still have yet to expire and it's 04 2013, so if you can buy a lot and save for the following year.

Boots are selling Cetirizine Hydrochloride 10mg x 30 for £8.49!!!!!! yes just 30 tablets! CRAZY, probably from the exact same company as these!. They totally rob us for having hayfever.

Really cheap - even with delivery this is great value.

can't stop sneezing at this deal.........nice 1

Thanks, silly value! Let's hope they work as good as the branded ones ...

Cant afford not to at this price. And yes, its the same active ingredient as branded medicines for anyone wondering

Not to be sniffed at.

Of course it will work the same, the active ingredient is the same.

thanks just stocked up for the summer!

Great deal, not surprising boots etc put such huge margins on these products when the actual production, licensing and packaging costs are about half the price of this deal!

Hot from me even though these don't work :-(

It's commonly known in the pharmacy business that despite the active ingredient being the same in a branded and non-branded product, efficacy rates are better in the branded equivalent.

never heard of this site, any reviews?

Fair point, but there are so many factors that interact with efficacy of any oral antihistamine that is it of real concern to the average patient? Maybe of more concern to someone who requires steroid injections or alike for allergy relief, but for the vast majority of us with milder symptoms these are just fine.

I do agree that branded medicines in many circumstances are preferable for a targetted response, but for hayfever its of little consequence.

Absolute rubbish-Total myth that generic drugs are manufactured in poorer-quality facilities or are inferior in quality to brand-name drugs. The FDA applies the same standards for all drug manufacturing facilities, and many companies manufacture both brand-name and generic drugs.

Great deal, got 12 packs for me & and another 12 for my daughter

got a few boxes left from last year. Are they still in date?

Apparently there's a placebo effect associated with branded products -- in other words, because users expect better results, that's what they experience. However, I'd doubt that this minor difference is worth the ridiculous price hike (the same goes for ibuprofen, for example).

what the hell, ordered a few boxes

How can you take cetrizine? It's 'first generation' drug, loratadine is 'second' and telfast is 'third'. Cetrizine makes you drowsy, loratadine as well, much less. Try telfast (fexofenadine hydrochloride) - works much better and longer than those two and does not make you drowsy at all.

Yes and no. The active ingredient is the same - the molecules attached to aid specific delivery, reduce side effects etc are different. Its more important for acute infection, specific cancer treatments and alike, probably not an issue here.

Pretty sure Cetrazine is a 2nd gen drug.

Nice one. Watch out for the confirmation emails, they went straight to spam in Gmail.

And is not available over the counter....

I suffer from hayfever and my doctor said the best over the counter products were the ones containing Cetirizine. Regardless of which one you take they all have common side effects. It all comes down to personal choice and what works better for you and gives you less side effects.

Depends on the person. You might be saying how the drugs effect you. Personally I have tried them all and zirtek / cetirizine worksvthe best for me.

So what us the max order? The individual sets say max 6. What about the 6 pack?

cheers

cetirizine works better for me personally. i've tried loratadine 10mg/day and even after a week of it i'm sneezing and scratching my eyes out, so had to double up the dose to 20mg which stopped the hayfever but at the cost of me falling asleep every day by early afternoon. but people are all different and respond to drugs in different ways, so loratadine may well be better for others. just saying in response to the poster claiming loratadine is better based on the generation of the drug.

I'm a loratadine person myself.

I bought 12 boxes under this deal when I posted it in another thread a few weeks back, no problems with delivery or product. They came next day and were dated late 2013.

nice one - was just thinking i had to order some more ready for this summer of torment as my last big batch is running low - great timing

Try telfast, need to get it from GP anyway... You all are right - we should take whatever act best!

Don't worry too much about the expiry date it's just the strength that diminishes so a year after is fine.

thanks!
