Albany- Pharmacist, David Hays, owns Hays Pharmacy and Compounding lab. He says the over-the-counter Claritin is no different from the prescription formula.

He also says it's about seventy-five percent cheaper, which puts a lot of money back in the pockets of allergy sufferers.

Over-the-counter Claritin costs between eight and twelve dollars depending on the size you buy. Prescription Claritin can run you from forty-five dollars up to more than one hundred dollars for larger sizes.
