We are currently receiving a large number of calls about hayfever.

For adults over 18 anti-histamines such as loratadine, cetirizine and chlorphenamine can be purchased over the counter at any pharmacy or in a supermarket. If you find that this does not help please speak to the pharmacist for advice on combining tablets.

You can also purchase nasal sprays and eye drops to help alleviate your symptoms.

For children over 2 years old please speak to the pharmacist for advice on liquid anti-histamine preparations and eye drops which can be purchased over the counter.

Please only contact the practice if you have tried all of these alternatives and be prepared to give us details of medications that you have tried.

Thank you

Dispensary team
