At a recent summer barbecue, a relative of mine who is an RN told me about secrets she learned while working at her hospital.

How I Discovered These Inexpensive Alternative Medications!

Recently at a summer barbecue, a relative I haven't visited with in years told me about a secret she had learned as a registered nurse.

I was explaining to her how my medications are becoming too costly to afford. After hearing my story and listening to the medications I take either daily or whenever I catch a cold, she went on to tell me secrets she learned from working at a hospital for years.

At first, I didn't believe her recommendations would really make that much difference to my health. I was so wrong. I'm writing this article to share her secrets—so that you, too, can save money on common over-the-counter medications.

1. All Day Allergy Relief

Allegra, Claritin, Zyrtec, and now Walmart All Day Allergy Relief for 88 cents!

Years ago I was prescribed Allegra for allergies. It was prescription only back then. Now it's found over-the-counter at most pharmacies.

I also took Claritin for a time when I was pregnant. It was the only allergy medication that was deemed safe then. That was quite a long time ago, so I'm not sure what the medical standard is today for pregnant women.

Recently, within the past two years, my doctors suggested that I try Zyrtec. I started taking it every day and it works great. The problem for me was the cost. At almost $1 a pill, or $26 for a month's supply with a coupon, I simply could not afford it any more. I started buying a five pack for $5.95 at Walmart just to get by during allergy season.

That's until this past summer, when it was recommended that I look for the green allergy box at Walmart. It's only 88 cents, I was told. Hard to believe! I talked with a few other people at the barbecue and no one had heard of it before. Some said that they take a Walmart brand allergy relief pill, but it's $11 a box.

I took a trip to Walmart to see for myself. Sure enough, I did find a green Allergy Relief pillbox. It was located on a shelf next to all of the other name-brand pills. Now, it's moved over to the end of the same aisle with a variety of other generic medications for 88 cents.

When I first tried it, I was very skeptical. But it worked! I've been taking it ever since. I don't have to take it daily, but even it if I did, at 88 cents a box for 14 tables, I could get two boxes for the entire month for $1.76.

2. Heartburn Relief

For the past couple of years, I have suffered from acid reflux and heartburn. A lot of people I know suffer from the same thing. I've been to many doctors and they prescribe expensive prescription medications.

My latest prescription was for Pepcid AC. At $10 a month, that may not sound like a whole lot of money to sacrifice for heartburn relief. But after finding out that Walmart sells a generic brand over-the-counter for 88 cents a box, I had to try it out.

To my surprise, the Walmart generic Original Strength Heartburn Relief worked just as well as the prescription.

To me this meant, no more appointments at the doctor to have a $10 prescription refilled, when I could buy the same thing at the store for $1.76 for two boxes. Each box contains 12 pills.

This product can be taken daily, but is meant as occasional relief from heartburn.

3. Multi-Symptom Cold Relief

Years ago, after suffering from multiple sinus infections, a doctor recommended that I stay away from over-the-counter sinus medications. Sure enough, since then, every time I've ever taken a sinus medication, other than one prescribed by a doctor, I've ended up with worse sinus problems than when I took nothing to relieve the pressure, pain and breathing issues.

However, whenever I do catch a cold and have trouble sleeping, I turn to a multi-symptom cold relief medication. Usually, I find them in combination box. Several major brands sell this type of product.

Recently, I found Walmart had a brand for 88 cents. It comes in a combination box with Daytime and Nighttime cold relief. There are 6 caplets for each. That's a total of 12 caplets.

It just so happened that I caught a cold. I took the nighttime relief after spending a day in bed not being able to breathe properly and combatting a sinus headache. To my pleasant discovery, the Walmart brand worked so well that by morning I felt completely better.

The product compares itself to the active ingredients of Tylenol Cold Multi-Symptom Daytime and Nighttime. But since researching for this article, I learned that Tylenol Cold Multi-Symptom Nighttime manufacturing has been discontinued.

4. Antihistamine Allergy Relief

As an allergy sufferer, and sometimes even having a full-blown allergy attack for seemingly no reason, I always keep Benadryl on hand in our medicine supply.

I found a Walmart alternative for 88 cents a box for 36 minitabs.

This is different from a daily allergy pill as it is immediate relief for sneezing, runny nose, itchy, watery eyes, and itchy throat brought on suddenly from such things as coming in contact with allergens. Pet dander, dust, and mold, are the types of things that trigger my allergies.

5. Sore Throat Relief Lozenges

I even found a box of sore throat lozenges, not cough drops, with 9 lozenges to a box for 88 cents. That is a price that simply cannot be beat for relief of a sore throat.

Conclusion

Whether or not you decide to try Walmart generic medications for anything from allergies to common colds is ultimately your decision. These medications may not be for everyone.

But after years of spending money on costly medications, I am so pleased that these generics work. They are affordable and inexpensive enough to have on hand without making needless doctor appointments for costly prescriptions.

Ultimately, I hope they work for you, too!

Please let me know in the comment section if you would ever consider trying these generic medications, if you have tried them, or why you would never feel safe using them. Thanks! I appreciate all of your input.

        The term generic says it all! You are paying for the brand name if you don't. The FDA watches and tests before they hit the shelves. Thanks for the heads up!!!

        Excellent article! I swear by Walmart's Tussin for mucus and chest congestion when I have a bout of bronchitis! I have tried the rest but this stuff is the best! Also hydrocortisone cream. And in addition Motrin cost a small fortune, I but Walmart brand. And their antibiotic cream. Hydrogen Peroxide. Witch Hazel! Need I go on? Heck, we should get a commission from Walmart! :)

        Hi Teaches12345! You are so fortunate. I was never sick a day in my life until recently. Other than common colds and such, I never had the need for medications. The last couple of years have been difficult for me health wise as well as financially. I'm getting back my good health now though, so for that I'm thankful. And, I'm so relieved to find these inexpensive alternatives. Thank you so much for your input here!

I haven't noticed that one yet at our Walmart.

        I found these 88-cent medications at my Walmart a few months ago and have been using them ever since. They are so inexpensive, and they have worked for me and my family. I love a bargain and these are a really great bargain! I can't always find them in stock, so when I do, I stock up. We use the 88-cent cortisone cream, triple antibiotic ointment, benadryl cream and anti-diarrheal.

        Speaking of dogs, I use Walmart generic ladies yeast infection cream in my dog's ear when she gets a yeast infection there. Problem solved for pennies! A wrote an hub about it, if anyone ever needs the instructions.

        Hi Rebecca! Thank you so much for commenting. One of my dogs had an eye infection. It cost $100 at the vet's to get a prescription eye cream. It didn't work. I went back to the vet and it was another $100. This time I saw a vet tech and she told me to buy Visine. It was buy 1 get 1 free at the pharmacy. I got 2 bottles for $4. It worked better than the eye cream for the vet. But I had to spend $200 to find that out! LOL

        Yes, absolutely Wiccan! Like for example, we have a local pharmacy. I've tried their off brands which aren't that much cheaper than name brands. They do not work for me at all. It's ridiculous because the items are supposedly the same thing. That's why I was skeptical about trying Walmart generics for 88 cents. I was pleasantly surprised that they worked out.

        Hi Alicia! Thanks so much for your input here. When I first went to look at Walmart, I didn't find what was recommended. I really had to search for them. Our Walmarts have these cardboard divided bins with 88 cents on the sides. In them, they do have some products. But the ones I listed here are usually found elsewhere on the shelves. I'm so glad I found them though.

        I put those tables up there because I know a lot of people have allergies. Sometimes someone can take a regular pill, but not a generic because of the inactive ingredients. I hope they do prove helpful.

        Hi Wetnose! Wow, that's interesting. I did see a sign advertising that Walmart now has pet meds too. Our vet's office charges way to much for anything. The same thing here say is like $98. I have a friend down south that told me her vet charges $4 for the same thing! So having Walmart as an alternative is a good option.

        This hub is very useful, Crafty, including the tables! I always buy generic medications instead of brand name ones whenever I can, as long as they both contain the same active ingredient, which they generally do. I get the medications at my local drug store and supermarket. I haven't checked Walmart prices, though. I'll do that now that I've read your hub. It sounds like they will be even cheaper than the store brands that I'm buying now!

        Really nice hub. We usually pick up generics at Walgreens, but these are even better deals. Thanks for the good advice!

        This is one of those hubs that should do well in views over time; the keyword Walmart should be a winner.

        I'm so disgustedly healthy, Brandi, that this hub probably isn't for me, but nice job on it.

        Awesome options. Everyone can use a little extra money in their pocket. I don't always pay attention to price when I am sick so I will stock up ahead of time. Helpful info, Crafty!

        I'm sold! I'm adding these to my Walmart list. I suffer from allergies. Do the ones in the green box make you drowsy? I have found the 88 cent pink box that compares to Benadryl, but I only use those at night, as they do make me drowsy. I'm going to try the ones you recommend for daytime. I think I've seen some of them before but never knew of anyone who took them. It's nice to hear that they work for you. They're worth a try at the price! Thanks!
