    I hate hayfever so much and seem to spend so much time looking for cheap antihistamines - apparently tesco are cheapest

    It's worth pointing out that if you are from have a low income/savings (looking at you students) you can fill out a HC1 form to get free prescriptions.

    I find anything with Loratidine stops me from sleeping as long as I'm taking it.

    I've quite bad hay fever and was even prescribed steroids on a short term a few yrs ago. I now take prescribed medication for it. But putting a small amount of vaseline inside your nostrils will help so much. It may seem stupid but it's effective.

    and yes, vaseline does work too - it stops the pollen from being able to enter your airwaves so easily

    try and make it honey from your local area so you're more immune to the local pollen...the point is to start early (say now) so in main hayfever season you have protection

    It is effective. You can cut down on antihistamines quite a lot with vaseline. But I put as much in as I can, not just a small amount, and that seems to be more effective still.

    I find if I use too much of it then my nose gets blocked. So I try and limit how much I use.

    I tried this yesterday while I was cutting the grass. I had to take antihistamines anyway for my other allergies, as I do everyday, but it did help my hayfever while I was out in the garden for hours
