Drugs to avoid to minimise Old age Issues

Seems authentic, am wary of me taking Hay fever tablets for 6 months a year, generally get all 3 brands to get $7 off+ when purchased from Chemist Warehouse. Maybe Claratyne is the best of the bunch with the minimum of issues? However best to discuss with your GP.


Do not hit the Blue Button when looking at the adds as you could get the Tinnitus blurb.

Hi ,i`ve been taking various hayfever drugs the past 60+yrs(now 71) . Have suffered no ill effects that i`m aware of .The last 2 yrs i tried taking them all year round  but my body was getting too used to them and they became less effective ,only now take them between Sept -April here in NZ .
My daily dose for the last few yrs has been Loratadine ( on prescription ) , Claratine tablets bought over the counter are good ,but crazy expensive ,and i found the liquid better than the tablets . If my hayfever comes on real badly ,i also take a light `swig` of claratine as well .Eye spray to lubricate the eyes too ,when needed .
Of course this is as well as the other 6 daily pills ,(now down from eleven) ,of `keep me alive` medication .
Aint getting old fun !!
Andy .

I heard Hay fever tablets should be avoided by those with heart issues.
