My husband and I were both experiencing excessive weight gain and have been very tired and lethargic. In addition, I have been experiencing swelling in the face, feet and legs.

After reading about all the negative side effects from others, I am stopping this drug immediately.

We started giving this to our 22 month old son at the recommendation of our doctor for seasonal allergies. Almost immediately, his mood changed and he became irritable and disobedient. We are discontinuing Zyrtec and will try Claritin or Allegra instead.
