The Doctor started my son and myself on Claritin, we might as well have been taking a sugar pill, it was USELESS! Then he prescribed Zyrtec, it works great for us, glad it's over the counter now.

Comment:
I have been taking Zyrtec since it was released. I have suffered from allergies my entire life, and zyrtec was the first thing that ACTUALLY WORKED!

Comment:
I started taking Zyrtec for my seasonal and non-seasonal sneezing, itching eyes, and itching skin. It worked very well for those things. However, starting about 24-48 hours after I began taking Zyrtec, I found myself feeling sad, "off," and had crying episodes. I did not associate the two, thinking it was something hormonal. However, for the next 3 months, I continued to feel confused, k ... Show Full Comment
