I LOVE ZYRTEC!!! I have really bad allergies and have tried many different meds for it. None of them work as well as Zyrtec. I can't wait for it to go to generic.

Was given Zyrtec years ago when my body began to react to many substances and allergens. It has helped me in particular around animal hair and dander and I can now garden again, too.
