The Guild does not support the company submissions to reclassify cetirizine hydrochloride 10mg tablet (Histaclear) and loratadine 10mg tablet (Loraclear Hayfever Relief) from pharmacy-only to general sale medicines, when sold in packs containing sufficient tablets for only five days supply and when used for seasonal allergic rhinitis. The proposals underestimate the importance of the significant clinical expertise and medicines information that community pharmacists provide when supplying these medicines to patients.
