    The Pharmacy, for some reason unknown to me, first gave me Singular when I was actually prescribed Zyrtec. I have been on the Zertec now for about a week and so far I have noticed no difference in the itching that I have. The itches is the worst when I am trying to sleep.

    The drug does as intended, takes away allergy symptoms. However the side effects for me were too much: it DID make me drowsy (and I'm never drowsy normally) and made me DEPRESSED!

    I had taken this medication in the past for my seasonal allergies and read that it would help reduce nasal swelling. Last night I took it for the swelling and all was fine. I was breathing fine during the night and it didn't keep me awake like some other drugs have in the past. The problem today is that my vision is blurry. It seems to be getting better as the time progresses but I would have ... Show Full Comment
