Dollar Store Drugs

You would never think it, but you can score great deals on OTC drugs at your local dollar store.

Last night, my wife and I took our daughter for a walk up to the dollar store around the corner. Not exactly the normal family walk destination, but tonight it was, as I had just run out of my antihistamine. And some of us know how miserable that can be!

Unfortunately, this dollar store only stocks one variety of antihistamine, but thankfully it is the one that works for me - cetirizine. I also need to take decongestion medication, as the antihistamine does not take care of that. And, luckily, they carry that as well. Smile

So I got five packs of 14 pills of cetirizine, and three packs of 24 pills of the decongestant. Now I can live somewhat allergy-free for about a month. Total price? Just under $9. But, remember to round up!

    Got to remember to check these out. Dr. just put me on low dose aspirin and it is WAAAY $$ at CVS & Walgreens.

    Also need to check out fish oil and flax.

    I found my daughter's generic allergy meds, also cetirizine, from for just under $16 for the whole year! I bought something else I needed at the same time and received free shipping. Only $.04 per pill is a great deal for allergy relief.

    I have yet to find anything online at such a low price. Good job doing so though!

    marvholly, our dollar store has vitamins as well. Smile

    The dollar store I go to sells plain ol' diphenhydramine (Benadryl) in about six different packages. Some labeled for allergies, one labeled for kid's allergies, one labeled for sleep. They have different amounts of it in the different pills and different numbers of pills in different boxes. My DH keeps it on hand for hayfever, but we buy whichever is the better deal, regardless of what they are marketing it for. There are no other active ingredients in the pills, so that is not a concern. It' purely a price comparison. I try keep keep an eye on where the stuff is manufactured, though.
