    Cheap Loratadine in Tesco
    • #2
    • 11th Apr 12, 12:03 PM
    Having bought Loratadine in Tesco last night I can confirm that in my local store (Winchester) it is now cheaper to buy 2 packs of 7 than one of 14 - currently 1 for packs of 14 but 45p for 7, making it now only 90p for 14 if bought this way. Only pennies different but adds up if you have to take it for several months

    My GP recommended cetirizine hydrochloride and said not to waste money buying the branded ones. I've found the cheapest place for them at the moment to be Morrisons own brand - packs of 14 one a day tablets for 50p each which is an absolute bargain!

    Anyone know the cheapest place to buy Sudafed (or Pseudoephedrine Hydrochloride BP 60mg) tablets thanks?

    The best price I've found is 2.35 for 12 at Chemist Direct but there's a delivery charge: http://www.chemistdirect.co.uk/sudafed-decongestant-tablets_1_2432.html

    Go down the herbal medicine road and it may help just changing your diet.

    Interesting, I have tried Olbas Oil its excellent but pricey. Just spotted these at Tesco, not exactly what I wanted but probably cheapest retail price at 65p: http://www.tesco.com/groceries/Product/Details/?id=261023844

    I don't take a lot of these tabs only if I get insect bite or sunburnt, then I have to take 1 because my whole body reacts very badly.

    Ive bought the Boots value Loratadine, 7 for 99p which I thought was pretty good. But now reading this post I realise I can get them even cheaper!
  • BlackHoleSun
    As all the posts so far about tablets I thought i'd ask if anyone knew where the cheapest place to get medicine from is?

    If you do go the postal route then Chemist 4U do 8% cash back plus 5% coupon discount. See TCB for details. Just ordered generic Zirtek, plus some nasal spray. Including postage, I make that 5.5p per tablet before cash back and 5p per tablet if I get the cash back. That just about matches Aldi

    Generic Cetirizine
    Most pharmacies will sell a box of 30 generic Cetirizine for just over a pound you have to ask for them as they will not have them on display as there is not much mark up on them. They are not allowed by law to charge more than 50% mark up on these items, the most I have paid for them is 1.69.

    Diet modification: eat anti inflammatory, low glycaemic index - in some cases the symptoms are completely eliminated! You could argue healthy eating is free because we should all be doing it anyway. Of particular importance is the intake of oily fish (ideally every day), fruit and vegetables (ideally nine a day), sugar and white/ refined carbs (ideally none of either). Do bear in mind our government's recommendations are minimums/ maximums not optimal.

    Are anti histamines really drowsy? Plus a possible alternative
    too many histamines = unpleasant hayfever reactions, so that's why anti histamines often work well. Histamines in your brain keep you alert attentive and awake. That's why anti-histamines can make you drowsy. If you try them and they don't make you drowsy, then you are probably OK with them. Some people will find the non-drowsy ones make the m drowsy, and some will find the drowsy ones don't make them drowsy. You've just got to try them out.
    I use HayMax - one pot can last several years, there are no drugs in it so it doesn't make me drowsy and it works for me for dust, pets and pollen. The cheapest I've found is just over 4 inc postage - it's normally 9.50 As a new poster i can't put a link in but if you go to the eco mum and baby site you should be able to find Haymax for 2.43 plus postage...
