Congratulations to our lucky winner:

Michelle B said, “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.”

***Winner has been notified via email with further instructions.  Stay tuned to $5 Dinners for more upcoming giveaways!***

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.

jodi June 14, 2011 at 8:39 am

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

Wal-itin is also my fave. I only started taking daily allergy meds this year, but it makes such a difference. If I forget one day, instant sinus headache!

Jen June 14, 2011 at 9:10 am

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

The Walgreens version of Zyrtec is terrific!

I’ve never tried the Walgreens brand before, but now I’m curious!

Christina June 14, 2011 at 1:32 pm

Darlene in North GA June 14, 2011 at 2:40 pm

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.

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!

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

Chung June 14, 2011 at 10:20 pm

I love the walgreen pain killer.

Stephanie June 14, 2011 at 11:18 pm

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

Rachel Pitzer June 15, 2011 at 5:08 am

Love Wal-Zyr, the price is right, when you have 4 people taking it:)

Katie June 15, 2011 at 7:20 am

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

Lauren June 15, 2011 at 7:32 am

We love the Wal-Zyr. Cheaper & just as effective for allergies!

Rose June 15, 2011 at 7:39 am

We buy Walgreens Tussin for winter colds and their vitamins are always b1g1 free.

Crystal June 15, 2011 at 7:51 am

I love the walatin

Chris B. June 15, 2011 at 8:48 am

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

Chris B. June 15, 2011 at 8:48 am
Stephanie June 15, 2011 at 8:57 am

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

Michelle B June 15, 2011 at 9:55 am

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.
