The constant sneezing, the itchy eyes, the headaches, the blocked nose - all hay fever suffers know how exhausting it is when the pollen count decides to ruin your day.
Well, it seems that people can't stop talking about this new, high-strength drug, while some are saying it has totally 'cured' them.
The drug is known as Fexofenadine Hydrochloride and apparently has been hard to get hold of.
It was previously only available with a prescription, however, the now, over-the-counter drug is getting snapped up pretty quickly.
In the UK, brands such as Ellevia or Treathay sell Fexofenadine Hydrochloride tablets and people are going crazy for it, reports YorkshireLive.
One hay fever sufferer said: "I went to three different supermarkets trying to find it. It was completely sold out in Asda Handsworth in Sheffield, and it was sold out at another two in Leeds.
"I bought some online but even on Amazon Prime, there's about a week long delay on orders and it took a week to arrive on the 'next day' delivery service. The reason is, it works.
"It's much more potent than regular hay fever tablets, so my reactions are much more under control.
"I don't know what I would have done without it this year, when the pollen has been absolutely crazy.
"Last year I got some on prescription, but now they're available over the counter it's much easier and cheaper to get hold of them - until they all sell out."
Social media have also been raving about the drug, with one person writing: "I have gone from having the worst hayfever you will ever see anyone have in your whole life, to feeling like I’ve never had it. Allevia, you have cured me."
Another said: "Fexofenadine aka Allevia 120mg over the counter at Boots.
"Took a couple of days to kick in but this week I've been hayfever-free.
"No itching, no eye drops, no nasal sprays. 10/10 would recommend."
A third added: "Them Allevia hayfever tablets are defo worth the money tbh - they’ve been working wonders for me"
Someone else thought: "Guys Allevia truly are the best hayfever tablets.
"I suffer from hayfever badly but with one a day, I haven’t even had the slightest nose twitch in weeks!"
A final user concluded: "Those Allevia tablets have made forget that I even suffer from hayfever they are literally the best".
Tyla has contacted Allevia for comment.
