Up & Up All Day Allergy Relief Vs. Zyrtec

Allergy season is upon us here in Alaska. The Fireweed plants are flowering to the top which means winter is right around the corner. The grasses and weeds are starting to go to seed and my allergies have been making me miserable.

My doctor used to prescribe the antihistamine Zyrtec for me, which worked well, but now Zyrtec is available without a prescription. Better yet, there are generic forms of Zyrtec on the market that can save a shopper a substantial amount of money.

For the past few years I have been saving a bundle by purchasing store brands, and the Up amp; Up All Day Allergy Relief sold at Target stores contains the same active ingredient as Zyrtec, but at half the price!

Up amp; Up All Day Allergy Relief pills come in a white plastic container with a green child proof lid. I have some arthritis in my hands and find some child proof caps difficult to open, but the Up amp; Up brand is not a problem for me. The pills are small, white and oval shaped, measuring less than a half inch in length and only 1/4″ wide. Each pill has “4H2” imprinted on the center top.

Up amp; Up All Day Allergy Relief pills contain 10 milligrams of cetirizine HCL, which is the same active ingredient in Zyrtec. In fact, the Up amp; Up package reads “Compare to the active ingredient in Zyrtec”. Up amp; Up All Day Allergy Relief pills contain the original prescription strength of Zyrtec, but they are a much cheaper alternative!

Up amp; Up All Day Allergy Relief pills claim to provide 24 hours of relief from both indoor and outdoor allergies. They provide relief from sneezing, runny nose, itchy watery eyes, itchy throat and itchy nose. If you have ever suffered from an itchy throat from allergies, you know how miserable it can be. I want to stick a brush down my throat and scratch it! I even get itching in my ears, but the Up amp; Up All Day Allergy Relief pills work to relieve these symptoms.

I don’t get 24 hour relief from my allergies, but these get me through the day and help me to function like a normal individual. They do cause some drowsiness, so be aware of this if you are going to be driving or doing any activities that might pose a problem.
