This post brought to you by Walgreens. All opinions are 100% mine.


So we all remember how I lost my voice just days before going on The View.  I went to visit a doctor to get some steroids for my vocal cords and he said to me…this laryngitis is not allergy related, but I can tell you that if you suffer from grass allergies, you are going to want to start taking your medicine right now.

I took his advice and started my daily dose of Wal-itin to get me through this grass season. I prefer Wal-itin over the name brand because it is cheaper…even with a coupon for the name brand. I buy it in “bulk,” or in the larger bottles, as that is cheaper per pill as well.

I love how when I buy the Walgreens Brand Health & Wellness Products I am also supporting preventive wellness services to local communities through the Walgreens Way to Well Fund™ .

  • Walgreens will contribute up to $3 million annually to the Walgreens Way to Well Fund™.
  • The Walgreens Way to Well Fund™ will provide free preventive health tests as well as other health and wellness services and education to local communities.

    My son has to take Zyrtec daily, and we’re up to the highest dose now. The Walgreens brand is waaaayy cheaper than the name brand, and it works great! I recently got 2 bottles for only $5.

  2. jodi says

    I love to buy Walgreens brand pain relievers – from baby tylenol to adult ibuprofen.

  3. Jen says

    I buy lots of their products, especially their ibuprofen. So much cheaper than the name brand!

  4. Karissa says

    I actually love their diapers. They keep my 1-year-old dry significantly better at night than Huggies!

  5. Brenda H says

    The Walgreens teething gel has been a life saver to me! I have a 1 and 2-yr old and we have had a LOT of teeth recently!! :-)

  6. Dana says

    We always use Walgreens brands cough/cold medicine as well as their pain relief products.

  7. Rita says

    I use a lot of walgreens brand products. One of the most used walgreen brand products I buy is their ibuprofen.

  8. Emily says

    I also use many Walgreens brand products; I really like their children’s fever medicine and their allergy meds. What a savings! Thanks for the give-away! :)

  9. Mellisa W. says

    I love their neck heat wraps. They are stickier, warmer and last longer than Thermacare. Thanks!

    Walgreen’s generic AZO. Had a kidney infection and couldn’t get in to see anyone for about 5 hrs. I was in some kind of pain. Walgreen had some generic AZO that worked a treat.

  11. Diana says

    I don’t remember if I have bought any Walgreen brand products recently, but I buy store brand products a lot!

  12. marella says

    Thanks for the give-a-way. I use a lot of Walgreen products but we feel their vitamins are a great value.

  13. Gabrielle says

    I buy Walgreens Brand Plastic Adhesive Bandages and love that they are inexpensive and work even better than leading “name brands.” Walgreens is my favorite drugstore in town and I love to shop their deals with coupons each week!

  14. Mary Alice says

    I like the Walgreens brand ibuprofen, child and adult, and also their first aid ointments.

  15. Linda Kish says

    I like the Finest Natural Calcium 500+d caplets. they aren’t quite as big as most calcium supplements are so easier to swallow.

    I missed the giveaway but wanted to say that I’ve been taking Zyrtec for years, and when they went OTC, I was bummed, because we have a pretty good prescription plan. Anyway, even at walmart, I found they were pretty expensive: $18 for 45 tablets (I, too, take them every day). But if anyone uses CostCo (like BJ’s), they have Kirkland brand Zyrtec $17.99 for 365 tablets. BEST DEAL EVER lol

  17. Katie says

    I like the Walgreen’s brand of the pink tablets you chew when you have an upset stomach. You know the ones. 😉

  18. Chris B. says

    I think any of their pain relievers is great, but I especially like the ibuprofen. What a savings!!

  19. Stephanie says

    Love the Walgreens Acetaminophen PM! So much cheaper than Tylenol PM and works like a charm for my boyfriend.

  20. says

    The Walgreens brand cold medicine is the best! I esp love the night time syrups. Works just as well as the name brands but at a fraction of the price.
