Clarityne
I live in Durban and suffer from hayfever. A friend of mine suggested I use Clarityne, so what I want to know is:

1. How much do the pills cost (Estimate)
2. Do I need a prescription or are they readily available over the counter.

Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

Clarityne does NOT need a prescription and you can expect to pay 'roun R200 for 30 tabs. Generics is available - e.g Lorano @ 'round about R18 for 10 tabs.
Ceterizine that Mel reffered to is a good antihistamine, BUT NOT A GENERIC OF CLARITYNE - It's a generic of Zyrtec.
