    it does work well, yes, but prescriptions are really quite expensive (unless you're still under 18), and you can normally buy exactly the same drug on the high street at lower cost.

    as the article says - cetirizine (clarityn) on prescription would be £7.20 per month (soon to be £7.40), or bought from tesco it would be £3 per month

    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
    If anyone is cutting grass, I make sure I make a detour!

    Haha, i know, it's awful isn't it? My Dad left my clothes out on the washing line while he cut the grass one time, and I couldn't wear any of them - all had to be washed again

    neoclarityn isn't available over the counter though - it also goes by the name desloratadine and it stronger than regular loratine and contains a decongestant. Only available on prescription. our doctors don't like giving it out though because it's really expensive and apparently the prescription charge doesn't cover it =(
