Tried this brand for a change. It doesn't work. Took 2 this morning and still sneezing, itchy eyes and nose. Watery nose dripping like a tap. They don't last for 24 hours, they don't even work.

Purchased in September 2019 at Chemist Warehouse for $29.99.

Does not last 24 hours like it states on the packet

published

I get hayfever with itchy eyes, stuffy nose and phlegm stuck in my throat.
Bought Telfast 120mg 24 he relief and I've been on it a few days.
Took one at 2pm yesterday afternoon and took another one at 9am this morning because my eye was itchy.
That's 5 hours short of 24 hours.
Paying for a product that claims to last 24 hours and dosnt even last 19 hours has put me off and Il think Il try another brand

Purchased in April 2019 for $13.00.

Cashback

published

Telfast advertises a $7 cashback but when you try and claim it the website is faulty either it is designed to be faulty so you cant claim or it is faulty so you cant claim. The product in general is ok.


Rash (or is it hives)

published

I got again, Telfast does the trick. I take 2 on the first day...one at, say 7am, the other 6pm.
The 2nd one knocks me around a bit, I get dizzy when I get off my chair & gives me heartburn.
The following day I only take one. And on the 3rd day another & I'm back to normal

Doesn't work for 24 hours

published

We bought the 24 hour 120mg pack for our son. He took it in the morning and by the afternoon his symptoms began to return. By the late afternoon they were worse than they were in the morning before the telfast.

Cash back site constantly down

published

I have now purchased 2boxes and on both occasions tried to claim online and it fails at the end saying ‘ sorry something went wrong and our server is down’ what a joke . Back to Zyrtec.

Not working at all

published

It started out well by working for abbout 8 hrs even though it is supposed to protect for 24 hrs. Then gradually it lost its effect. After a week an half, it has stopped working completely.

Really fast acting!

published

I get allergies in the summer and because of cats. I take a Telfast and that seriously disappears. The allergies I have to cats disappear! I don't get welts, itchy skin or asthma! Really worth looking into if you're uncomfortable due to allergies.

Absolutely FAST

published

I was severely bitten by goodness knows what from something in the sea water at Wynnum! Everywhere I had applied sunscreen these bugs bit. I endured the crazy itch for a few hours by applying ice, before leaving for a Chemist where I bought and took TELFAST 180mg immediately. I utterly praise this product for its speedy effect; as by the time it took me to drive home - NO MORE ITCH :) I continued to use Telfast until the swelling resolved.

Made My Symptoms 10 Times Worse

published

After taking this within half and hour to an hour it made my hives worse on hands and feet. Prickly itch all over. After a few hours my lips were red raw and my tongue was swollen. Did not eat tea as did not know if it would make it worse. It is now 20 hours later and I want to rip the skin off my hands.

Best relief for itchy bites

published

I've found these to be the fastest working antihistamines you can buy at supermarkets. I also try to buy them in larger bulk boxes from pharmacies overt he counter. Generally worked in half an hour and the itchy bites aren't itchy any more!

I hated not being able to be outside with my kids. But now I can enjoy the spring and summer with the pollen in the air without needing eighteen boxes of tissues with me!

This product does not last 24 hours, does the job when it is working however.

published

This product works well for my hay fever and allergy to cats, however, for me it does not last for 24 hours. It last for about 10 to 12 hours if I'm lucky. I'm considering switching to another brand as this Telfast does not last long enough for me.

Terrible waste of money

published

My husband and I had itchy eyes, runny nose, sneezing. All symptoms of hay fever. Took a 24 hour tab of telecast. Lasted 2 hours. Absolute rubbish. Supposed to last 24 hours. Nothing at all. Just a waste of money!

Excellent product for me

published

I have a severe allergy in spring season since moved to Australia. I have tried pretty much all the other brands but nothing comes even close to Telfast 180 mg. I can honestly say that it has saved my life. I get a bit of dizziness especially at night time but maybe because of its power. I highly recommend this product to anyone who's suffering from spring allergy reactions.

Actually works!

published

Telfast really does work very well for hayfever and it works quickly. I do wish the price was lower as I am on a very tight budget! I got my daughter onto using it as she suffers allergies more than I do and she was also pleased with how well it works
