    I was prescribed Zyrtec for my seasonal allergies. I took it as needed- it worked okay but after time I started developing hives. Went back to my doctor for the hives, thinking i was allergic to something else (detergent, chemicals at work etc..) so I was prescribed a larger doseage of zyrtec. The hives cleared up and then would come back 12 hours later with a vengance. I had hives all up and ... Show Full Comment

    Zyrtec-d helped me breath and clear my ear. I had severe sinucitis. The side effecs weren't too bad. I had drowsiness and a touch of dizziness with very little tightening of the chest. The tightness was only on the first night. I think this med is good to take for any sinus problems or allergies.

    Just tried the Zyrtec-D, after using Zyrtec for 10 years. This product definitely worked to manage my allergy symptoms and chronic cough better than plain Zyrtec, but definitely with a side effect-- difficulty sleeping at night- just a few hours a night, unless I use sleeping aid. Drawback definitely outweigh benefit- I can function ok with some congestion--not so without sleep. Going back to plai ... Show Full Comment

    I took this for allergies including sneezing, itchy/watery eyes, runny nose and sometimes wheezing. At first it seemed to work miracles - it dried me right up, stopped the sneezing and did not make me tired. But the next day was horrible, not only did I feel I had no sleep, but my throat was very sore, my nose was stuffy, I had a headache and my ears were popped. It was almost like it overworked. ...
