Its exactly the same ingredient as in Boots Allergy Relief Antihistamine so I would have thought you would be able to get something here with the same drug in it.

Just got back after visiting the chemists in Corfu Town, although they do not sell the name brand Piriton they have a drug called ISTAMIX which has exactly the same ingredients so hopefully Roseanne you can now get your allergy relief sorted

Try and ask for the drug chlopheniramine as this is the drug that is in piriton. Piriton is just a brand name. As others have said non branded alternatives are much cheaper and are the same drug. Other common examples of this is Nurofen and Zovirax cold sore ointment. Nurofen is ibuprofen which can be bought for 35p instead of ú4+. Zovirax is aciclovir ointment which is also much cheaper. Pharmacies will often steer you into the dearer branded alternative!
