Which is the best? I've tried Zyrtec and Claritin and they seem to not do anything. My sinuses and allergies are so bad that fluid collects under my eyes and makes them puffy Frown

These are all more modern antihistamines that won't make you drowsy like benedryl, but neither are they quite as fast acting as benedryl. For me allegra works the best (but it is also the most pricey). Zyrtec supposedly doesn't cross the blood/brain barrier, but it sure makes me sleepy so I avoid it. And claritin is the slowest (you're supposed to take it daily for at least a week before it really gets working right...).

Hope this helps.

Oh, and Costco's regular price on generic allegra is the cheapest of any other store brand by far. Their current coupon just sweetens what's already the best deal around.
Zyrtec does cross blood brain barrier, which is in the medical textbook.

I recently bought the allertec at costco. it helps a bit. the best thing I found was prescribed by my Dr. (he said he takes this also) and its called XYZAL (I believe its much stronger version of zyrtec). It truly worked like a miracle. that being said, I got bad nightmares and had to stop taking it. sucha bummer.

Try fexofenadine which is the generic form of Allegra. It's an OTC medicine so you can get it without a prescription. Take it daily, it has to build up in your system.

Thanks picked up this summer's supply of Fex. Sucks they are the only ones that work for me cause they are always the most expensive.

What are the alternatives? Any recs?
I recommend Alavert (lortadine), as it is free of lactose. My allergist for YEARS had me on Zyrtek, which has lactose monohydrate in it. As a result of using the product for more than 10 years, my lactose intolerance turned into a severe dairy allergy.

Roughly 70% medications (including asthma inhalers and benadyl) use lactose as a filler, consult with your pharmacist for exact inactive ingredients.

grey goose isn't even very good vodka though- it's just marketed extremely well. still, at costco prices for kirkland signature, it's perfectly fine, so I agree with the overall point- just wanted to nitpick Smilie

here's an interesting read about the genius marketing of grey goose, if you've got the time:

oh I'm in.

Cetrizine is covered by my insurance and is my primary weapon of choice, but this is cheaper than my co pay.

As someone who gets allergy shots four times a week and is literally allergic to herself.. thank you.

Allegra will be cheaper with my insurance though. That is expensive!

Can somebody help me what are differences among these three? I understand that they all last up to 24 hrs. The first one and the third one are non-drowsy. Why do they make Clear, Tec, and Fex?

My allergies have been kicking my butt so I could use a restock, as a half dozen zyrtec and a few allegra a day aren't even cutting it right now.

For people asking about the difference, all are considered non-drowsy. I've never found a rhyme or reason why one will work for someone and not another person. Claritin used to cover my allergies fine, and now Allegra is all that seems to help. I recommend trying them in smaller quantities to find out what works for you and sticking with that (though these huge quantities are about as cheap as smaller amounts at your local drug store).

Also, to the person who said Xyzal was 'much stronger', my understanding is a 5 mg is equivalent to 10 mg of cetirizine, it's just a patent extender (money grab).

All 3 are different allergy medication that belong to the "2nd Gen Antihistamine" drug class. They technically have the same mechanism to stop/decrease your allergy symptoms, but the structure of each are different. Analogy: Toyota Camry, Honda Accord, & Nissan Altima...are all family sedans, but they are individually different. For example, Zyrtec causes the most drowsiness for most people, but works faster than Claritin. Certain antihistamines don't work as well for certain people. For me, Allegra and Claritin don't work.

My recommendation for you is to buy a small qty pack and try out a couple before you decided to by 365 days worth of one brand. Allergies is a chronic issue for most of us...so try them and pick the one that works and fits you best.

To answer your last question...reason why they make 3 is because the Brand name versions are made from different companies.Mainly to make more $$$$. Once brand name lose patent and become cheap generics...they come up with gimmicks like combination Zyrtec-D, Claritin-D, Allegra-D (D=decongestant=pseudoephedrine) so they can keep charging a premium.

You SHOULD take medication as directed by on the label or by your Doctor. Even though taking 6 Zyrtec and a few Allegra probably won't harm you...you probably won't see much benefit from taking that many.

People can build a tolerance to antihistamines they take (medications don't work as well as they did when first started). That's when you need to swtich to a different antihistamine. If your allergies are that bad, you may want to see an allergist.

I found any of these three work well for me in the D formulation (sudafed). I need a decongestant (sudafed). I think it is the Allerclear-D that is $6-$7 for 15 24-hour tablets. Best price around for a 24 hour med with sudafed.

PS Without sudafed - Allegra > Zyrtec > Claritin.

PPS Anything with sudafed is at the pharmacy counter.
