I tried Walgreens generic Zyrtec. Won't do that again. Just didn't help that much so back to Kroger's generic Claritin.
I have chronic hives and decided to get generic Zyrtec instead of the name brand. I had hives all over me and when I went back to the name brand the hives went away. I was surprised!
We always use generic OTC medications, usually Wal-mart without having any problems. When I have any doubt about it, I always ask the pharmacist who is always helpful. But I do understand what you mean. Many years ago when our son had to take presciption asthma medication, he could not use the generic brand. He had terrible side effects. The pharmacist told me that while the main ingredients in the generic substitutes are the same, the "fillers" in the medication will sometimes effect people differently.
That's a great tip about contacting the company about coupons. Most companies will send you coupons. When we had dogs, I always contacted the company and they would send me dog food coupons upon request.
These meds are the same as the originals, just made at different locations. The ingredients are the same and they will work the same. The same is true for Tylenol (Acetaminophen), Advil (Ibuprofen) or Aleve (Naproxen). Dont buy the brand names, you are throwing your money away.
I am a retired nurse. I always buy the generic brands and have saved thousands of dollars doing so.
