Walgreens Wal-itin 24 Hour Allergy Relief is a non-drowsy, over-the-counter formula of original prescription strength allergy relief–meaning what you can now buy in stores is just as strong as what used to be available to allergy sufferers by prescription only. Distributed by Walgreens, each Wal-itin tablet has 10mg of Loratadine USP, the same active ingredient in Claritin.
To treat my chronic allergies, I have been taking Wal-itin for the last 30 days now. Before I started using this over-the-counter allergy medicine, I had been taking two prescribed alternatives: Fexofenadine (a generic form of Allegra) and Singulair. Because of the change in my insurance, those prescriptions were no longer an option and I needed to find something else.
I turned to Wal-itin knowing it as Walgreens’ version of Claritin, a brand once recommended to me by my doctor for some throat problems. Having taken the Walgreens’ allergy relief for 30 days now, I can say that I really like Wal-itin. It doesn’t compare to taking both Fexofenadine and Singulair, since taking those medicines in conjunction with one another is effectively taking a double dosage of allergy medicine. But, taking a single dose of Wal-itin, for me, feels just as effective as taking Allegra by itself and even more effective than taking Singulair by itself.
Priced at $27.99 for 90 tablets, with smaller and larger bottles available, Wal-itin is extremely reasonably priced and a great option for allergy sufferers. I’ll include below the important product information that is listed on the Wal-itin packaging.
