Allergies in general, stronger than loratadine (in my experience) but they have stronger side effects like drowsiness. I use them for my hayfever, a friend of mine also uses them to help with his cat allergies.

I got them because Piriton was making me drowsy. These ones didn't have that effect plus they are just one a day.

Yes I like benedryl can take up to 3 aday

For the sake of peace of mind, you can find them registered on the General Pharmaceutical Council's website - pharmacyregulation.org/reg…6PF

I thought they were galpharm from home bargains or are they the same.

wow thsts cheap. work in pharmacy and trade price for pack of 30 is £1.11. dont know how they can do it so cheap..

The generic name is Cetirizine. Brand names have the same active ingredient as the generic but will attract a higher price due to the brand name.

An example is Piriton which has the active ingredient Chlorphenamine, you can buy the generic equivillent for much cheaper and it is more or less the exact same thing.

Look out for Loratidine. This is a newer generation anti-histamine and as such will not make you drowsy.

Wholesale.

E.g. At times it can be cheaper to buy in Caplol instead of generic Paracetamol suspension to sell on.

You can cut the tablet in half (Cetrizine) and take half a tablet in the MORNING and half a tablet at NIGHT or take one tablet daily.

Thanks OP - Even cheaper than Home Bargains, B&M e.t.c. My hayfever has reached an all new level today - I canny cope captain!

I didn't know hayfever could make you feel like dog poo and look equally horrific thanks to the constant weeping bloodshot eyes and streaming nose. I find this only partially relieves the symptoms but doesn't help my eyes. So other than eye drops and eye wash I'd like to know if anything else has worked for you guys n gals.

Oh, I got put onto Loratadine because it was apparently stronger..but now I'm being put back onto cetirizine (for hayfever) hmm

cheapest is not always the best...the best is one that works the best!

i have some hayfever pills i got from florida and they beat any UK pill there is

yeah the main ingredient may be Loratadine - but there must be something else in them as other Loratadine pills from here have not been as affective this year.

i dont have many left so saving them for the really bad days...even my sister was taking loads of different pills but they did not work - she phone be begging for one of mine and after she took it....an hour or so she was a lot better.

i suppose everybody is different and different medication will work better or worse on different people

i know what works when i am suffering....just a shame i only have about 7 tabs left!

Look up the placebo effect on Google. Even POM (prescription only medicines) theres brand names and the generic. Often they contain the exact same ingredients but because its more expensive some people convince themselves that the brand name one is much better. Its not always the case though, sometimes the salt is different or binders/glicants etc but the most important factor is the active ingredient.

Thanks op. Bought some of these in Sunday. Let you know the expiry date once I get them.

Piriton and these ceriritizine had no effect this year but Loratadine worked. Expensive at £6 a packet but experienced worse hay fever ever lately

I know about brand named stuff and the actual drug inside as I have suffered with hayfever for over 35 years...when I got prescriptions free the doc always said find something that worked and take him the box.

And as for your placebo effect....total rubbish in this case for me.... Seems strange how you take the same generic drug which don't work and then you take the same drug but a different name and it works.

I can understand if it was just me....but it worked on 2 different people...there must be other stuff it them!

If these work for you....then great. Anything that combats hayfever is a winner

For those that have these, what are the expiry dates like?
