    Upon running out of the medication after long term use, I have been experiencing SEVERE PAINFUL BURNING ITCHING ALL OVER MY BODY. I am planning to titrate down over the next few weeks.

    My boyfriend and I have been taking Zyrtec daily for three years. For me, it began with seasonal spring allergies which proved to be an effective antihistamine.

I love Zyrtec. The minute I take it -- it starts working. It stops the sneezing, coughing, sniffling, stuffy nose, and itching. I don't experience any side effects either which is the best thing.

    For BP my doctor added losartan 25mg because 5mg norvasc was not enough. I had allergic reaction from losartan 25 mg i.e swelling of lips. I took the generic zyrtec and felt good. Next day I took norvasc 5mg along with Zyrtec and my pressure remained under control. Two days went well with this combination but today is the third day and I was unable to sleep and feeling restless, though feeling s ... Show Full Comment
