    Pharmacy First - promblems with registration?
    • #2
    • 10th Feb 10, 12:14 PM
    Hi,

    I have been trying to register with Pharmacy First so I can take advantage of their cheap hayfever table offer, but I keep getting the same error message - "Either no security code was entered or it did not math the characters in the image". I have tried about 5 times now and am definitely not typing the wrong code in!!!

    Is anyone else having this problem?

    Thanks!

    Was happening for me too. Got in on the fourth attempt. I used lower-case letters.

    I registered on Saturday and didn't have any problems. Also I noticed that on the MSE e-mail today it said that delivery can be slow, but I ordered on Saturday and received them today and the use-by date is Jul 2011

    The top article above refers to diphenhydramine; a drug which is for sale under the Benadryl brand name in the US. In the MSE article we are referring to acrivastine, a newer-type antihistamine which is marketed as Benadryl in the UK, hence our warning

    'Be warned if buying Benadryl from the US; there the brand name is attached to products containing diphenhydramine (aka Nytol) which may work, but'll make you very drowsy.'

    I hope this helps clear things up.

    Any new drug including Acrivastine you are still taking part in an experiment, where the side effects are not fully understood yet and may only fully emerge as large numbers of people start taking them.

    All of them have the potential to harmfully change heart rhythyms.

    2 antihistamines, that were pulled off the market, can cause a very rare and potentially fatal arrhythmia.

    I dont know if this is correct place to post this,but you can get your doctor to prescribe a full months worth of these, that gives me a massive saving on buying these over the counter as this is the only tablet that works for me.

    I've ordered 270 Cetirizine tablets from Chemist Direct each year - 30p for each packet of 30, this year I ordered them last Wednesday (3 business days ago) and they arrived today with a date of 05/2011. Great service as usual.

    Martin's email (10 Feb) said you can order them from Pharmacy First for 5p per pack of 30 with a minimum of 90 tablets, however I think he made a mistake - it should be a maximum of 90 tablets - that stopped me buying from them when I realised this maximum; for me with that maximum when combined with postage Chemist Direct was actually still cheaper.
    You're spelling is effecting me so much. Im trying not to be phased by it but your all making me loose my mind on mass!! My head is loosing it's hair. I'm going to take myself off the electoral role like I should of done ages ago and move to the Caribean. I already brought my plane ticket, all be it a refundable 1.

    When buying from USA
    Never order 18.00 or more for delivery to the UK. Customs charge VAT on order contents of 18 or more but our POST OFFICE charge 8.00 for collecting that tax whatever it is so an order worth 17 costs only 17 +p&p whereas 18 costs +p&p +15% +8 which rather defeats the object of buying cheaply in the USA.

    Question: is it just a marketing ploy or do they change the hayfever pill formula each year to keep up with the antibodies or something? I read this in a magazine explaining that it was best to keep up to date by buying the latest versions of any antihystamine pills out there.

    Is it true or a load of bull?

    I placed my order with Pharmacy First and payment was confirmed on the 11th of February (no problems)....... but still no tablets. I emailed on the 17th of March trying to follow-up but no reply as yet. I assume they were swamped.
