We've been down this road before. Get the "Equate" brand at Walmart for $28 + tax. 200 count 10mg Cetirizine , same as Reactine. Works the same for most. Been using this for the last 10 years at least.

Or if you have full drug coverage. Ask your doc to prescribe something similar. You get for free ;)

Learned that from RFD couple of years back on a similar post. Doing my duty and sharing it.
Stay strong, situation always looks harder and that it will never end when you are in the middle of it, but remember past experiences, everything has an ending.

Agreed. I have also known about this but unfortunately I haven't had a "plan" for the last bunch of years. Seems benefits offered from companies are not like they once were.

Great to hear that. Just because it works for you, it may not for others. So here is another option.

Can't see the details of the deal because it's not available in Quebec (coupons on meds aren't legal here)

+1 to that. Kirkland desloratadine (aerius which is IMO a better product) is $18 per 180 pills. My local pharmacy wants $42 per 30 pills of the stuff so it's more like 93% off! This by itself nearly pays for the costco membership 10x over...

That's why I put in my post "works for most".

paid $14 3 weeks ago for Kirkland brand, for200 Cetrizine Hydrocloride 10 mg tablets. Same active ingredient as Reactine. Those who says that generic does not work…. :facepalm:

Things might be different where you live I guess. Here no insurance plan pays for OTC stuff either, even if you have a prescription for it.

Your doctor would know what brand is. Like a higher dosage, that you can break in half. Won't need to teach you the ropes, but your doctor might.

even if I have a prescription, this is available without a prescription so no go. Insurance would not pay for Advil, even if I catch COVID-19 and doctor prescribe it to lower the fever

In Nova Scotia, you can get a prescription for reactine (certirizine) if it is written for 20mg which is not sold in reactine retail packaging.

Also, by law generics contain identical active ingredients, but sometimes the non-active ingredients (e.g. release mechanisms) make the brand name more effective for some people. In my experience, anyway.

Ho well to much hassle to save a few $$$. If I can't afford a $14 for 200 tablets I should hang myself ;). Been there, done this and does not worth the hassle. Do you know how much the doctor charges the government just to fill a prescription paper??? There's a reason why taxes are so high here, with all those people who uses loopholes to save a few $$$

Yes, at the bottom of the coupon page. And you are misleading when you say that coupons on meds are illegals in Qc. It is illegal for prescription drugs, not for available on the shelf drugs like Advil, Benadryl, Reactine that you can see on the Costco coupon flyer.

Yes, allergy season started for me. I used all of those formulas lately. I think your body get used to what you buy, and it becomes less efficient over time... Now it is Reactine that works best for me. I have to change what I use every few years
