    Wilkinson's own brand cetirizine and loratadine tabs. 75p for 14
    Be careful though because they also do packs of 7 for 88p at the checkouts

    A number of the online pharmacies sell bottles of 500 standard Piriton tablets for under 10 - including the Chemist4U site linked to on this week's email. It's actual Pirton, not an own-brand equivalent, the difference being that the tablets just come loose in a big bottle rather than in the little blister packs. But it works out much cheaper than any of the smaller non-branded packs, even when they're on offer (2p per tablet). You can't get big packs of the non-drowsy or one-a-day ones though, just the standard ones.

    Can't remember the name of the brand but it's the same as the one they sell in the shop. Loratadine at Aldi is 69p for 14.

    Sainsbury's do own-brand Cetirizine in packets of 30 cheap (but can't remember price) not on display, ask at Pharmacy.

    The pots of 500 Piriton are available to purchase and offer a vast saving on Piriton 30s and 60s, but as they are loose in a tub and have no child resistant top, I would not advise any families with children to purchase them.

    Thanks

    Oneclickpharmacy have got packs of 30 Loratadine 10mg (non drowsy, the same as likes of tesco, sainsburys cheap non drowsy) for 60p. Postage is 2.85 tho, but may still be worth it if buying other bits or in bulk. I've bought 6 packs So I have loads now. If you buy 6 packs, even with postage it works out at approx 50p/14 tablets (as opposed to 75p-1 in supermarkets).

    Linky!

    I have found that having any item in your basket that isn't a Hayfever remedy, disqualifies you from the free delivery offer! In my case, once I removed the offending item, the free delivery was duly applied.

    Hi All,

    I have just discovered Beclometasone nasal spray as a cheap alternative to Beconase. Just wondered if anyone had any advice or experience of this as I have not tried it before?

    Already taking cheap citirizine and eye drops but cheap Beconase would more than halve my hayfever order!

    Thanks

    Just found chemistdirect and they have Clarityn Sub Loratadine 6 months supply for 3.29 and delivery 3.49 so if you were going to order 6 months worth from chemist 4 u it's not much more expensive, and since they're in stock you'll be able to order straight away! I can't post links as I'm too new but they're easy to find in medicines, and hafever section, and site is seacrchable on google. Hope this helps!

    If you want to build up more of a natural resistance to hayfever, then try having a tea spoon of LOCALLY produced honey, made by LOCAL bees.

    Apparently pollen is not the same everywhere and by eating honey produced by bees subjected to the same pollen types that is triggering your hayfever.

    Most of us are quite happy to pop some pills, but for the rest of you or especially for kids this is more of a natural long game solution.

    So the old wives tell me anyway!
