Mine hasn't started yet.
Are you guys taking your loratadine?
That would be naughty.
I've never found cetirizine helpful so I stick with loratadine.
Another one to try is chlorphenamine (Piriton), but it does make some people drowsy so best taken at night.
But would it do me some damage? :chin:
Piriton is just so much more expensive though
The adult dose is 10mg (1 tab) a day. If you take more you'll probably just get nasty side effects without any extra benefit for the hayfever.
Never buy the branded versions if there is a non-proprietary alternative. Always ask at the pharmacy counter and save yourself some pennies ( in many cases pounds).

Mine started again last week. I thought I'd grown out of it (I'm 22 now) cos I haven't had it for two years, but it came back with avengance (sp?!) last Monday. I use Flixonase (nasal spray). A couple of doses of that during the first day and I tend not to get symptoms for at least four/five days afterwards. I've been through the years of trying every tablet on the shelf and found nothing worked for me, but Flixonase has been like a miracle cure! Would totally recommend it. Was £6.99 from Boots last week.
Ooooh, I may try that.
How long would a £6.99 bottle last me for, roughly?

yeah i instantly sneeze after using it
I always get prescribed that nostril stuff but don't dare use it. I'm funny about things going up my nose and I'm scared it will hurt. Haha. Am I being silly?
I don't pay for it.
I get prescribed everything for my hayfever. I get prescribed eye drops, nasal spray and tablets.
I've only ever been prescribed the nasal spray once. I still have it. I did keep meaning to use it but was scared of it hurting? I'm a bit of a wimp like that It hurts when I get water up my nose.
