    One for the hayfever junkies.

      If someone's taking this much crack they are probably better off removing exposure to the allergen such as pollen, mould, dust mites, food intolerances etc.

      • +39

        Yeah, I have been working for almost 3 months to remove the Summer season and I think I am just about there…

          When you're done, please work on Spring

            @dust: ".. certain foods can in fact make your seasonal allergies worse. Alcohol, peanuts, sugar, processed foods, wheat, chocolate, and even your morning cup of coffee are known culprits that act as hay fever catalysts. People also find relief in limiting foods that cause mucus production, such as conventional dairy products and gluten." quoted from one of the first search results https://www.afcurgentcare.com/about/national-blog/2018/april...

            Even the pharmacist often tells people this, if there's anyone here who cares to admit it.

      • I used to have bad hay fever.. but then I went to an ENT doctor as I also couldn't breath very well through my nose.. they said I had narrow sinus's, and I got booked in a for a day op, they chiselled and whatnot in there and I can breath and don't have hay fever. Life changing..

  • +11

    If you throw in a free pack of Pseudoephedrine, I'll think about it…

    • +1

      Don't tell me you are one of those Phenylephrine haters as well……

      • +14

        Have you read the studies? It's indistinguishable from placebo.

        • +13

          It was a joke, designed to stir up JV, it didn't work.

      • +2

        It doesn't work at all.

        • +7

          GP here - agree it's rubbish. Have to whip out my AHPRA card sometimes when the pharmacist starts questioning me like I'm selling meth…

          • +4

            @FreddyMerc: Pseudoephedrine products are S3 medicines. The pharmacists are just doing their job when they ask you those questions.

            I think flashing your photo ID instead your AHPRA card for project stop recording is more appropriate….

            • +2

              @pillcutter: Yes, yes, I know. I worked at a pharmacy for 7 years when I was studying med. I do find the need to lie and tell them that I have "tried the Phenylephrine but it didn't work" to tick their boxes. After this the drivers licence works fine. They only ask for my AHPRA card when I hand write scripts on scap bit of paper in front of them. Fair enough too.

        what ever pharmaceutical integrity you had on here, just left the building with this one line :|

          Jeeze - you guys…… If it was anyone else except JV….but woosh, over your heads.

  • Any nurofen plus hiding in a back corner?

    • +5

      Yes plenty but considering its S4 you better see your doctor first ;-)

    Definitely an Ozbargain value pack…

    There's a party in aisle 12… Or isle 12 with the added sunscreen

    Just get a prescription for Dymista from GP, use it for a 2-3 weeks and you will be cured for the season. Coming from someone who suffered very very badly from hayfever with multiple therapies to no avail.

    • Interesting…but what's the difference between say Naxonex and Dymista?

      • +1

        Nasonex is a nasal steroid. Dymista is a nasal (steroid + antihistamine).

    • +2

      No

      • -1

        Way to sell it… lol if you’d said yes you’d be out of stock in no time

        • Try Restavit mate

  • +2

    Good deal I'm sure but don't most people stick with one type of antihistamine that works for them?

    • +3

      Some people cycle antihistamine types to maximise effectiveness

      • Just to flesh this statement out a bit - if you take any drug for a lengthy period you risk building up a tolerance to to. Cycling through different ones helps to prevent this, hence maximising their efficacy.

        • +4

          I don't think this is correct.

          "There is a widespread belief in the community that taking long-term antihistamines makes them less effective and that it is better to swap between different types of antihistamines for the best effect. There is no compelling evidence that tachyphylaxis occurs with the newer H1 antihistamines.1 A recommendation to swap treatment is not contained in any of the position statements of the major societies which provide advice about antihistamine use. Multiple studies have shown that the effectiveness of the newer drugs in ameliorating the effect of histamine release in the skin continues unchanged for up to 3018 to 180 days.19

          Patients may mistake an intensification of the underlying symptoms for a waning in effectiveness of the antihistamine. There are situations in which a pre-emptive intensification of treatment may be required – such as before contact with a known trigger or in the weeks before the onset of the spring pollen season. However, this intensification of treatment can be achieved by increased doses of the patient’s usual antihistamine and does not need to involve a change to a new antihistamine that may cause idiosyncratic reactions."

        • My personal experience is that cetirizine & loratadine do absolutely nothing for me. I get quite severe hayfever with grasses being the primary culprit and the only AH I have had any luck with is fexo, typically 1x 180mg in the morning and by evening I'm starting to block up and get itchy again. At this price though I'm tempted to give the other 2 another try…

  • +12

    Perfect timing, I was running out of the last lot. Bonus here is they send it to you in a disassembled box in the post like some illegal drug deal, which makes you feel like a real bad ass.

    • +22

      Sorry to disappoint the main deal is shipped box intact in a satchel ;-(

      Happy to meet you in a dark alley and take cash for the next sale if it makes you feel better.

      • Haha, glad you took my comment in the right spirit. Was happy with the deal, bought some more this time around.

        FYI, I got the Zyrtec.

  • Any aspirin in these products ?

    • I suppose that’s a legit question if you’re sensitive to acetylsalicylic acid so I dunno why the neg. I’d suggest checking with you’re medical professional first but none of these contain aspirin so should be safe. Do ask your prescribing doctor or pharmacist, though, just to be certain there won’t be other complications from taking them.

  • +2

    Expiry for each medication? Thanks

    • +7

      Hayfexo is a 30 + 70 box (30 box 06/22) + (70 box 09/23)
      Trust Loratadine 01/23
      Trust Cetirizine 10/23
      Paracetamol 12/22

      Please note that batches vary = this is what I am packing now.

      • Thanks for the quick reply!

  • Any particular option make you more drowsy than the other? I've been really drowsy on Zyrtec.

    • +1

      I'm the same, people argue it's the good one. Telfast was the game changer for me. The generics don't seem to work as good as the branded stuff either…

    • Fexo does not make be drowsy, too high a dose can have the opposite effect.

  • Genuine question as I've been wondering it a while with these deals (and have been on loratadine for years although I think it's starting to lose it's effect)… is there a reason for offering different types in the same deal each time? e.g. should I be taking more than just one type a day, or changing things up periodically / alternating between them periodically? I've always thought mixing them was a no-no, but I'm curious given all your deals offer a mixture of different medications.

    • +1

      I suffer from pretty bad hayfever and I was always recommended to cycle through the different brands. I feel it works better than if I have only been having say telfast non stop. I usually get through a tray of one then move to another one and so on.

      • +1

        I agree.. I have severe hayfever during the dryer seasons, I usually cycle everytime I run out.

    • No need to change daily apparently.
      I've been advised to rotate only with each box to prevent the body getting used to the same compound.

      Similarly so, there is no need to cycle contraceptive pills or blood pressure medication or diabetic medication.

      • Thanks for that. I was advised to rotate by the pharmacy

      Hi Ned - just checking, did you select the free freight with no tracking and did you receive a dispatch confirmation that says delivery is around 10 working days?

      This would explain both complaints you have.

      If you purchased on the 17th of Feb its been 7 working days since your item dispatched.

      Australia Post usually deliver around 7-10 working days after dispatch, so if you;ve been waiting 7 days, you've probably got around 1 - 3 days left to wait.

      • How about now, did you post it? Because surely I haven’t received it.

  • Add 50 viagra and we have a deal!

    • +7

    Jumped on board the generic telfast train - thank you for the post!

    Please tell me again why pharmacy shouldn't be deregulated?

  • Silly question but is there anyway to get proof someone has hay fever? I suspect I have it and usually get a few symptoms when there is lightning/ wild change of weather but want a way to know for sure.

    • +2

      Go to an immunologist; they can do a scratch test. Pretty expensive though. Talk to a GP first. Your other option is to try taking an antihistamine and see if that stops the symptoms, though you won't know what you're allergic to.

      • Thanks mate.

    • +1

      If you dont want to spend $$$ on a test, just keep a simple diary of your symptoms and see if it matches up with weather, and se eif it worses when outdoors vs inside.

      I see you're in sydney, so see if your symptoms match up with the pollen count blowing in from inner Australia. https://www.sydneypollen.com.au/

      Also keep in mind that hayfever symptoms can be very similar to other alergies such as foods. e.g. Sulfur dioxide on grapes and in wines can present basically identical symptoms to hayfever.

      Or as victor says, go get a test.

      • Thank you, looks like I should just save up for a test to be sure.

  • Hey OP,
    Thanks for the deal, purchased this morning. Even with the discount code it was saying that only regular postage - flat pack was free, the express postage was extra. Order number was #7447 if you could double check for me.
    Cheers!

    I ordered Loratadine the last time the deal came around and I got a notification that they had been shipped the same day. I was very impressed, and I thought I should drop in here and say thanks.

    • Same experience here.
      Bought again from them 11pm last night. 12 hours later I received my tracking number/email from AustPost.

    Hey I forgot to buy fexofenadine while I was at Priceline today, good thing I found this deal.
    By the way can you explain the difference between the three types?

    • They are all antihistamines that have a different active ingredient, so they all do the same basic job. The Fexofenadine is the largest tablet size while the Ceterizine and Loratadine are quite small. Some people say Ceterizine can make them feel drowsy. I personally find the Loratadine works best for me but can make my nose and sinuses feel extra dry. Does that answer your question?

  • Has anyone noticed much difference between the generic and brand name versions of these?
