In this day and age, it is sometimes best to embark on a little self medication.
When you encounter runny nose. Can mean two things. Allergy or infection aggravated allergy.
Head for the pharmacy.
Chlorpenamine AKA Piriton tablets. DHA makes them and they are generic. Cheaper than the GSK boxes. The pharamcist will sell you a pack of 3 blister strips for 1.50 only.
If you kenna blocked nose, then Sudafed. For some strange reason, there is no generic Sudafed (pseudoephedrine) and the only brand you can buy is GSK. The pharmacist will give you 2 blister strips for 2.50 which is damn expensive. Anyway it is understandable that they hold it back. I have the knowledge how to make methamphetamines with sudafed. No I'm not pointing you to any sources or show you how.
I find the combination above better and cheaper than the expensive Clarinase or Clarityne which is really way above anyone's budget. However, chlorphenamine induces a bit of drowsiness.
If this doesn't work, then you might want to get a syrup. The most famous one is Actifed and it is expensive since it is branded by GSK. However, DHA makes a generic version called Fedac. Also the same 120mL bottle. Costs only 4.10 compared to the astronimcal Actifed at 8.90 or something in that range. If you take Fedac, don't take the above combo because Fedac/Actifed has the above combo but the antihistamine is not chlorphenamine but it will still make you feel drowsy.
Here is the info on Fedac.http://drug-database...tail.php?id=101
Yes, they do have tablet version but I do not know if they have it here in SG.
