I have had the worst hay fever off all time this this year, have been to the docs and had prescription tablets and still didn't work, does anyone know of any good hay fever tablets?

Thank you in advance!

Try sainsburys or wilkinsons own brands same active ingredient as the named brands but about a quarter the price.

Zirtek and Clarityn work fine for me, so does Piriton (yes, the kids medicine lol) :-)

I use boots own tablets plus anasal spray and eyedrops.But none of them work fully, they just relieve the symptons.  But i do prefer boots own brand Non drowsy. As the piriton ones just made feel like lying down and going to sleep.

The Tescos ones work too (1 per day type).....same ingrediants as the rest, the non drowsy Piriton is good but they are only 4 hour ones.
Strangely I've not been affected much this year, last year was terrible

I didnt realise tesco did them! Ohh I may get those then! I was in OZ last year so didn't suffer, but this has been the worst year yet! I would have thought in the rain the pollen would be damp and wouldn't affect me so bad (wishful thinking maybe lol!!)

I had the same problem last year and a friend's wife who does homeopathy made me some pills. I've always been sceptical about homeopathy, and maybe there is something pschological about it, but they worked a treat. Just a thought. On hayfever tablets I agree supermarket brands are often just as good as big name ones. A spray called beconase usually works quite well in experience too.
I'm ahead of my time, but only by 15 min

I use Clarityn.

They seem to work ok for me.
