    Sorry, I take 120mg fexofenadine hydrochloride.

    I get them from the doctors as over the counter ones do not touch the sides.

    I can't the equivalent cheaper online, it seems only small doses I.e. 10mg are available

    As stated above, no one should take 120 mg of cetirizine or loratidine.

    The chemical make up of fexofenadine is different, so 120 mg dose is equal to 10 mg dose of the others. It is NOT that fexo is 12 times stronger!!!! One drug works better for some, and another for others.

    Just ordered the Cetirizine from Pharmacy First. Watch the offers though. They do 120 tablets for 2.79 or 180 for 4.79 (not as good value: 10p a packet more expensive!).

    Also you can get 6.3% cashback on your order via TopCashBack (and no doubt Quidco).

    You may be wrong!
    In 1980, I was a bit sniffly, then had a "proper cold", which was unfair as it was mid summer! As I was unwell I put things off, (as you do!), but eventually I looked at the aircon filter, (I own a "one man business" called London Sound so it's my job, indeed everything is my job!). I washed the filter and the water stank more than you can imagine! The filter had "caught my cold" and was breeding and recirculating it around my premises continuously. I am constructively lazy, so naturally I wasn't going to clean the filter more often so instead I filled a spray bottle with a mix of Dettol disinfectant and water - half and half. I then sprayed the filter everytime I or any visitor showed any signs of infection. or roughly once every two or three months.


    I still have the same aircon unit though the filter has been replaced. Importantly I also still spray the filter every now and then. My advice is to spray a Dettol and water mix into the air inlet of your aircon unit once every two or three months - your noses will love you!


    Incidentally, if you suffer any hay fever symptoms in an airconditioned office almost certainly it's not hay fever as the aircon filter filters out most if not all of the pollen!


    If you still have problems, improve the filter!




    As a further thought, I wonder if you have the aircon maintained under contract and the engineer is cutting corners on cleaning the filter. Hmmmm

    Home Bargains have 30 for 89p. Sometimes Cetirizine, other times Loratadine.
