Review of Kirkland Signature Aller-Tec Allergy Pills

by StevenHelmer

I purchased a bottle of 365 pills for $14.39. Read to find out what I thought of this product.

Product Description: Non-drowsy, 24-hour allergy pills from the Kirkland Signature brand. I purchased a bottle of 365 pills for $14.39 while shopping at Costco a couple weeks ago. I've been taking these pills on a daily basis since making the purchase and my oldest daughter has also used these pills on a couple occasions.


Overall, I'm in good health (this was confirmed at a recent physical). However, I do have a really bad problem with seasonal and dust allergies and, as a result of that, I am constantly popping allergy pills to get through my day.

I was taking a 4-hour brand of pills but my doctor, during my physical, recommended I switch to a 24-hour brand, something I've avoided doing in the past because I always thought the better brands were a little too expensive. However, I came across the Kirkland Signature brand of allergy pills during a recent Costco shopping trip, decided to try them and am very happy with that decision.

The thing that originally attracted me to this brand was the price. This brand only cost $14.39 for 365 pills. In comparison, most of the other allergy pills I've purchased were about $7 for 30, making the Kirkland Signature brand a much better bargain.

As far as the overall quality goes, I've had no issues with these pills. As is the case with pretty much every 24-hour brand, there are some days when I'm forced to double up on the pills (something my doctor did give me approval to do). But, most days, one pill keeps my allergies under control to the point I can work around dust or go for walks in flower-filled parks without sneezing or my eyes burning.

Another thing I like about this pill is the size. I have a hard time taking pills and, the smaller the pill is, the better. These pills are just the right size. They are large enough to be effective but small enough for me to be able to swallow one of them without any great difficulty. This is important because, if I can't swallow the pill, it's not going to do me any good.

Also, I'm glad to say these pills don't make me drowsy. This isn't always the case with so-called 24-hour brands, some of them knock me out just as much as the brands that don't promise to be non-drowsy. So, this was a nice plus for me, especially since I really don't have time to be sleepy.

Final Opinion

As I said, I am perfectly happy with my decision to purchase this product. In fact, I've already recommended it, mostly because of the low cost, to my parents and my boss. If you suffer from allergies and are looking for an affordable allergy pill choice, this is one to try.

My Grade: A

StevenHelmer, Thank you for practical information, pretty pictures and product lines.
Dust and seasonal allergies are so annoying because they aren't quitters. I attempt to work with them as naturally as possible. But sometimes that just isn't possible.

It's helpful to keep the Kirkland allergy-fighters in mind and on hand for the worst reactions. So a double dose every once in a while isn't going to render the regular dose ineffective, correct?
