Thread Details

Costco.com has some discounts on their Kirkland Signature brands of Allergy medications through 3/31 or while supplies last.
5% surcharge for non-members. (You have to pay the 5% on the pre-discount price, but it's only a few cents difference.)

I bought some of these a year ago when they were posted on the front page:
http://slickdeals.net/permadeal/70640/costco-wholesale-kirkland-signature-ibuprofen-and-allergy-relief-365ct-10mg-antihistamine-15.50-120ct-180mg-allerfex-allergy-relief

My supply is running low and I found that the Aller-Tec Cetirizine HCl is cheaper now than it was then and the Aller-Fex Fexofenadine HCl is around the same price. Also found a year's supply of AllerClear Loratadine for $9.99.

These are great prices compared to what you'll pay for generic allergy meds in stores. I used to pay around $18 for a three month supply of Cetirizine.

Aller-Tec Cetirizine HCl (Zyrtec) 10mg 365 tablets $13.49: http://www.costco.com/.product.11312465.html

Aller-Fex Fexofenadine HCl (Allegra) 180 mg 120 tablets $25.99: http://www.costco.com/newurl.prod...27103.html

AllerClear Loratadine (Claritin) 10 mg 365 tablets $9.99: http://www.costco.com/.product.11602332.html

I would never suggest YOU not adhere to those expiration dates, but there is a growing chorus of citizen research that indicates those expiration dates are developed for marketing/sales needs alone. Search around. Interest in 'prepping' isn't an instant on/off. It grows over time. Read on the subject a few minutes a day the rest of the week and maybe it'll catch your imagination. Feel free to PM me along the way.
Hmm well that makes me feel better cause I hate having to throw anything away. I usually won't worry much unless the medicine is discolored.

Maybe I will look into this prepping thing.

sams club has the claritin generic for $13.42 - 400ct (3.3 cents/pill). For those that don't have a costco nearby.
This is available online with free shipping so it doesn't much make a difference. I guess that'd be good if you were already in sam's club or needed pills right away.

Why is Allegra always so much more expensive.

which one is the most effective? I live in the south and we got pollen like crazy and my allergy is really bad at this time of year.

Cetirizine gives the best bang for the buck.


As a member of Sam's Club but not Costco, this deal would save me $0.0002 per pill.

Probably because you need 180 mg of it versus 10 mg with the others.

I was running out of fake-Claritin fast, and this is an absolute steal! For comparison, CVS wants the same amount of Loratadine for $53. Thank you for saving me over 80%

They also have 400 Zyrtec for the same price... I just bought some this week. You get a 100 bottle and a 300 bottle...

Sams are made in the USA by Perrigo, probably one of the best pharma companies in the business. (They probably make Costco also).

Zyrtec is what my doctor recomends... they all work well, but Zyrtec has the least side effects, and can even be taken by pregnant women (check with doctor first). It's a very safe drug. Claritin is known to cause headaches in about 10% of users... Zyrtec isn't.

Zyrtec is also more effective on Hives and skin conditions....

I use Zyrtec for my hives. It is very effective. Recently I tried out Allertec just because it was so much cheaper. It worked just as well for me.

My wife swears that Allegra is by far the most effective. I suspect that it depends on the specifics and severity of your allergy. She takes the Costco brand aller-fex and seems happy with the results.
