OK if you get that exact brand from Bristol labs. Some sellers will send you something similar which sometimes is just some super cheap knockoff that doesn't contain the ingredients it needs!
yep ordered these last year. Thanks op for sharing.

Great deal. I get similar ones from Chemist Direct, but these are half the price, with free delivery.

​Any particular reason why?



I wouldn't buy meds from independent sellers or unfamiliar retailers online either. I simply would not be comfortable or have enough peace of mind doing so. I would however happily buy from Boots, Supermarkets, or a well known High Street chemist/shop online.
Are these the non drowsy ones, I always have to ask because I get forget every year ?

Summer's coming



Upvoted for the optimistic note.

​No Loratadine are the non drowsy ones
Been waiting for Summer for a few years now!
"Summer's coming"

Jeezus, can we at least get easter out of the way first?
Have they recently changed their packaging?
wish winter would do one.

Why? I buy meds from India - genuine meds from Cipla etc. You can tell with feedback and word of mouth (on forums etc) who is good and who should be avoided.

​No Loratadine are the non drowsy ones



Lifted from Wikipedia for info:-
commonly reported side effects of cetirizine include headache (16%), dry mouth (5.7%), and drowsiness (5-20%) or fatigue (5.6%).[10]
Good if they work for you. Unfortunately they don't for me but I've found Asda's own brand do the job.

​The reviews seems good that's why I was just about to buy some but reading what youve just typed up has made me think twice. Thanks you informative git lol
tried these, my partner and I both suffered with extremely bad side effects!
what on earth do they mix with these. no wonder they are cheap
avoid.
Cetirizine is Cetirizine, even if you buy a branded packet at £9 or the cheap asda kind they just work the same , people always think buying a more exspensive brand means you will get a better medicine but your just paying for packaging and advertising LOL this brand work just as well as the dearer tablets because its a genric kind. Same with Nurofen, you are paying £5 for plain low strengh ibuprofen lol so heat added for this.

Cetirizine is a non drowsy antihistamines, i dont find Loratidine makes me drowsy its more the heavy one ie piriton liquid etc
back up to 49p
Voted hot but note that the expiry date is shown as 07/2016 on the product page, in case you were planning on stocking up.
It's only January - some stores are still selling off last Summer's stock Maybe these are last year's stock?

I bought these for the year previously. Beware they definitely DO NOT work as well as even the ALDI tablets. I am often sneezing even after taking these tablets. I have still been taking them although I will never buy them from Amazon again. The packets look genuine but for all I know I am swallowing chalk.

Loratadine and ceterizine are pretty much non drowsy, either are fine.

Chloramphenamine is the only one which is really known to cause drowsiness.
I got these a few weeks ago the expiry date is 05/17 good price but took about 10 days for delivery
You'd be safe with either loratadine or ceterizine. They're both unlikely to cause drowsiness. Only one with a real risk of causing drowsiness is chloramphenamine.

On that note, Nurofen is actually being sued in Australia for improper marketing. Same ibuprofen tablets for targeting different ailments. All a marketing ploy.
Bought two packs. Thanks.
