I've been on it for 20 years! It actually had the opposite affect on me (increased sex drive). Take it for my prostate, but I've got a lovely full head of hair, so who knows? All the other men in my family (parents, grandparents, siblings) are/were bald or balding as well.
Be safe and just try it on one arse cheek 😁
My wife may be on them then (y)
Bad luck? Nooo I'm very happy (y) , I could never do anything much with it when I had any, I hope when yours has gone back a bit more you don't revert to the desperate man's "comb over" 😁 😜
If baldness and small todgers were the norm I'd be a winner in both camps........... 8)
Grab this with both hands. Deals like this are getting much harder to find.
The problem is that the government keeps cutting funding so that now, pharmacy cannot survive without OTC sales. Which isn't necessarily a bad thing, but it takes away from what they really are. But they now have to employ more people to sell these lines which is good, BUT the fly in the ointment is companies like this and Amazon (who are now getting into pharmacy) they under cut pharmacy, which will mean that if we the general public carry on going down this road, community pharmacy will cease to exist. Then we will have something to complain about.
Good deal, keep it up!
Unfortunately we already mostly have fairly impersonal services. Even the local pharmacists have ended up being little more than a prescription signing service because of the sheer volume they have to process. Pharmacists have a highly qualified job but you'd never know it based on what they end up doing with most of their time. Must be demoralising.
Guys, we should be supporting Community Pharmacy. If you don't you will lose it. And you'll only have the impersonal services like this.

6 months Supply Loratadine Hayfever Allergy Tablets (30 x 6) £6.25 delivered @ Pharmacy First using Voucher Code£6.25 Free P&P Free
Thanks, old thread, but just clicked through and now £5.35 (y)
With the Amazon ones, does anyone know the expiry date, I only take for about 4 months so would they be ok until next summer? thank you
I read a long time ago that Certrazine made you drowsy and Loratadine didn't, so I gave Loratadine a go first. I've never felt drowsy so haven't felt I needed to try Certrazine.
Cetirizine used to be marketed as the drowsy one (and it certainly had that effect on me - felt like I'd been up 36 hours), and Loratadine as the non-drowsy one, but both descriptions have been dropped some years ago, not sure why.
You must be right then. Oops. I always thought it was non drowsy. Not sure if I can delete my comment though.

3 x Fluconazole 150mg tablets PLUS 2 x Clotrimazole Cream (20g) £7.43 @ PharmacyFirst£7.43
Yes but you don't usually get that great a discrepancy between generic medications - for example, Boots sell generic paracetamol and ibuprofen much cheaper than Nurofen - £1 rather than £3.50 etc... I could understand a few pounds mark up but £10 more expensive per capsule? They literally price it just below Canesten and it's ripping people off.
These tablets are actually great for fungal infections in toe nails aswell as athletes foot, my dads doc prescribed them, stating you can only treat some nail infections internally, hence why many older people have yellow thick nails (highfive)
Fair enough. If the PL number is the same, it is exactly the same product. If it is different, check the "ingredients" and see how similar they are. Some people have allergies to the fillers used in similar products, or swear they don't work at all. For me, Cetirizine Hydrochloride or Dihydrochloride are the only active ingredients which work for my allergies. But we are all different. If you want the same product as Allacan, which is cheap generic Cetirizine Hydrochloride, make sure you check the PL (product license) number when it arrives, or even better, ask the chemist in advance which PL number they will provide - or state it, if you have a preference. That said, there are many different product licences for generic Ceterizine.
I have these (with blue box like in picture) and they work well. About a week ago I switched to a Asda brand certirizine and started getting hayfever worse, yet when I started back on these again I was fine. Maybe a coincidence though I guess.
I’m afraid your argument fails, because the only people doing it will be the vast majority not paying for individual prescriptions.
The NHS actually EARNS money out of people getting this sort of thing on prescription! It costs them pennies to get the product (lets be fair and for argument sake call it £1 for a months supply) yet the prescription charge of £9.15. So that’s £8.15 profit. 900% markup. Who’s the winner out of that sort of maths?
Great deal! Heat added. Don't forget to use Top Cashback 12.75% cashback at time of order, also for some reason, 2nd class delivery is free, but so is next working day Royal Mail Special Delivery. So went with that option too :D
They work but with side effects as expected. Drowsiness, sometimes headaches and nauseating feeling.
How you getting on?
Thanks OP. I noticed next day signed for delivery is shown as free....so I've clicked that button (Obviously a mistake for it to be free). I'll wait and see if they come super speedy or second class.
Surely the chemicals you were doing your hands into?! If we aren't working with chemicals... All fine.
Be aware that PharmacyFirst are inundated/slowed down by Covid-19 (like most places) - I ordered some hayfever tabs two weeks ago and I'm still waiting for them (although I've been told they should arrive in the first half of next week now). So if you have the itch now, might want to look elsewhere :)
I didnt know what this was so I looked it up on the internet. Now I have a new favourite word - coccidiodomycosis
