It’s April, which means spring is here bringing warm weather, blooming flowers, and sunny days. But if you’re one of the 7.4 million people that suffer from seasonal allergies, spring means pollen, watery eyes, sneezing, and visits to your pharmacy. Affording your allergy medication can be expensive, especially if multiple people in your household are suffering from allergies this season, but GoodRx is here to help.

GoodRx coupons can save you as much as 80% off of your prescription medication, but did you know that you can also use a GoodRx coupon to save on your over-the-counter medication? And that includes the common seasonal allergy medication Zyrtec.

In fact, you can save 80% or more on over the counter Zyrtec if you use a GoodRx coupon. Typical prices for 30 tablets of Zyrtec at your pharmacy can reach well beyond $20, but with a GoodRx coupon, you can pay as little as $5 for generic Zyrtec (cetirizine) at your local pharmacy. One thing to note – coupons for non-prescription products work a bit different then what you may be used to.

Here’s how to use a GoodRx coupon with non-prescription Zyrtec.

  1. Get a doctor’s prescription. Though you do not need a prescription to buy these products, you will need a prescription from a doctor to receive the GoodRx discount.
  2. Get a GoodRx coupon. Just look up the item you want to buy on GoodRx. Then, print, email or text yourself the appropriate coupon. Even better – download our free mobile app which has coupons built right in.
  3. Go to the pharmacy counter, not the cash register. Your pharmacist will locate and set aside this product for you.

That’s it! As we say, it’s a bit different than what you might expect, but if you can save serious money, it’s worth the trouble.
