Found 26th MarEdited by:"LesD"
The FREE delivery part of the deal sometimes disappears, but it's there now - as long as you don't buy anything else.

Loratadine is the generic ingredient of Clarityn tablets which retail for extortionate prices.

Ps......here's the cetirizine option (as in Zyrtec) ...

Here's their deal on Piriton (chlorphenamine). I don't know if it's cheaper elsewhere.

I wouldn't wish suffering on my Mrs but the X? Don't get me started!
This is great for six months supply! could save the NHS hundreds of thousands of people buy this instead
thanks op
is this the same as piriteze?
In PoundStretcher the 28 pack of Cetirizine Hydrochloride is £0.79 so 6 packs (I.e. 6 months) is £4.74. This is regular price and I cancelled my prescription and buy these instead.
I suffer with pretty bad hayfever so I purchased a similar deal for 6 months worth of hayfever tablets with a different internet based pharmacy and was delighted with this similar price I got. I took them for around 2-3 weeks and suddenly started developing some horrendous stomach aches which carried on for around a week whilst I was trying to work out what was causing them, I stopped taking these and the stomach aches stopped thank god. Not saying you shouldn't buy these as it's a good deal and you will probably never suffer from these side effects just want to give anyone a warning
Brilliant! Got a years supply. I feel cetirizine is better for seasonal hayfever, but medicines will work differently for everyone.

Everyone should buy allergy medication, save the NHS god knows how much!
ah crap, every year I totally forget about hayfever, get all excited for summer and then remember that I'm allergic to it.
Which one is the non drowsy version again certizine?
For some reason the non drowsy makes me drowsy and vice versa
Doesn’t this sort of thing cause Alzheimer’s?

Cetirizine and loratadine are classed as non-drowzy but there is a small chance it could cause some drowsiness. Chlorphenamine (piriton) can cause drowsiness as it can pass into the brain

No it doesn't, unless you read the daily mail. These papers often take studies and skew them enough to get a headline.
These don't work for me, i've tried all the cheap hay fever tablets, only 1 that works for me is Benadryl and they are not cheap.

Need acravastine, then, but no generic equivalents as far as I am aware (made by Geoff Coker who spent more time repairing his cycle rather than working!).

Having been on one of the original clinical trials for acravastine which was a comparison against other antihistamines, I can say that there is a huge difference in them (involved injecting histamine into the back!). I used to run a lot and one of them (no idea which) made my legs feel like lead. Did my best time on the route the day after I stopped taking it, though.

You should consider steroid injection, one shot Intramuscularly should last you for a few months.

Non-drowsy - Desloratadine/Levocetirizine
Slight drowsy - Loratadine/Cetirizine
Drowsy - Piriton

EDIT: Also, I recommend 'Beconase', for those that find the antihistamine pills ineffective, it is a nasal spray. You can find it in Boots for example.

Are there any similar for Chlorphenamine?

Are there any similar for Chlorphenamine?


Loratadine is a H1 Blocker as is Chlorphenamine (Piriton). However Chlorphenamine is more sedating. Cetirizine posted on here previously is also in the same family of drugs. I bought Cetirizine and Piriton last time round. I am sure Loratadine is equally as good. Its a matter of which one is best suited to you and your allergy. Fantastic deal, fantastic price.

For anyone with severe hay fever interisting article here:-ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pub…407 Always seek medical advice.

I've added a link in the OP to their 500 tablet Piriton (Chlorphenamine) offer at £12.99. I've seen a price somewhere of £9.50 but that had a £3 delivery charge. Anyone found them cheaper?

Acravastine is the only one that works for me too, hate paying so much for them though!

Loratadine does nothing until it is converted to Desloratadine (the active material), so I don't see why there should be any difference (I have a patent on making both- now part of patent case law in the US due to certain legal arguments!).

In the US fexofenadine is a biggie, but not really over here. This is also the active species (metabolite) of terfenadine (which was voluntarily withdrawn when the patent was about to expire so that they could replace it); a person who was in the lab next to me in the US patented a fexofenadine process which the originator took up (to gain extra patent life) and paid 5% royalties to him over 20 years which was pretty good as sales reached over $2b/year.....
Thanks

Exactly the same yes.

Thanks op
Capped Crusader says - Phew; sometimes the Techy terminology sends my brain in a spin; but this Pharmasist stuff is on a much higher level. Would something like 'Allergy relief tablets' help at all in the title???
Got this deal last year. If I took one every single day for the 6 months, I had 3 days left before the expiry date at the end.
I contacted CS as I thought that this was a bit tight, but they were not in the least bit interested. So if like me, you have the odd few days when you don't need them, and expiry date is important to you, then take this into concideration before ordering.

No:

"Second-generation antihistimines such as loratadine -- Claritin -- for allergies also are not anticholinergic."
