Cut zyrtec in half

Common Questions and Answers about Cut zyrtec in half


351317 tn?1204755471 The 10mg zyrtec is too strong for me so can I cut it in half and take 5mg instead?
Avatar f tn I took half a Zyrtec the first night of the fast. By day 4 I ended up taking another half b/c the itching became unbearable. I haven't taken another one and tonight the itching is starting to get worse, but it's not too terrible yet so I'm going to try to tough it out. Someone in a previous post mentioned it taking 2 weeks to recover, so hopefully I can last that long. It's very interesting that someone else mentioned the gluten issue, as well. I went on a gluten-free diet for 1.
Avatar n tn One thing I have tried is taking One Zyrtec in the morning, One Claritin Hives ( its harder to find then regular Claritin but works way better!! I find it at Longs Drugs) and then late at late if I have issues I take another Zyrtec, but usually if I follow my diet I dont have too. Maybe once a week I have too. Do you have anything other than the hives? I have a rash, hives, fever and get swollen in my joints and face.
1711722 tn?1356491154 I am stealing a Zyrtec from work. Shhhh! Don't recall how it affected me in the past, so we'll see what happens. Thanks! I am in Week #19 and there is a chance I may have to do 48 weeks. Hopefully not, but things are kinda up in the air at the moment, as I am changing docs.
Avatar n tn For the last five years I have endured the presence of constant phlegm in my throat.
Avatar n tn I just had some dentistry done (cap that went bad) and was in severe pain. The dentist perscribed Amoxicillin for infection, and half doses of 7.5mg Hydrocodone for pain along with 2 Advil plus sleeping pills at night. I took the pain med with Advil for a day and it made me sick. Since then I have just been using 2 Advil 4 times a day. I noticed that one of the other post listed Nexium, Zocor as meds the take. I am wondering if there is a common denominator here?
Avatar f tn I got one out of the toilet and cut it in half. It was like cutting into a thick jello and the inside was a white, ricotta cheese like substance. I too take Pristiq but I've been taking that for years and these just now started showing up. I had an EUS(endoscopy Ultrasound)and the Dr. said I had rotting food in my gut and had gastroparesis. I'm having the EUS done again on the 12th and will see what that shows. Can't believe anyone else has this problem.
Avatar f tn In my case I did the tattoo myself and I know the needles were clean and the ink wasn't cut. It is only on the black ink in my case. has anyone here figured out yet what the cause or cure if any. I itch like crazy and stated off with a few small bumps and now have 30-40 little ones in a cluster. Need more info and help please, anyone!
Avatar n tn Just bring a CD of choice, and you'll be in and out in a half hour. My Neuro said he wanted to rule out everything, and he has, which was a relief. But the waiting for results is painful. Try to stress your concern and have the results back in 24 hours. Mine came back in 6 hours... no joke... 6 hours after my MRI the neuro called me with the results. I too was having anxiety, which my doc said is a byproduct of not knowing what is going on, and the lack of control we have over it.
Avatar n tn I do notice that it tends to itch a little bit more in the lower half of my body. I noticed most of the time it happens in the evenings or when I am lying in my bed. I thought it might have been bedbugs or mites or something so I tried washing all my sheets, blankets, pillows. That didn't work so next I switched all the sheets, blankets, pillows, etc. Still was happening, so i switched mattresses with my father and its still itchy.
Avatar n tn I also have the gurgling. I have post nasal drip and was put on Zyrtec which seemed to help some with the lump in the throat thing but now I feel like I'm swallowing air all the time. I wonder if the Zyrtec dried out the sinuses so now I don't have to swallow as much and am not used to it yet. Since the Zyrtec I've also stopped clearing my throat all the time.
Avatar n tn I too have suffered in the last 5 years from too much mucous in the throat. I am doing a good deal of research and I am now trying a holistic approach - Apple Cider Vinegar (must be unpasturized/raw/unfiltered/). The dosage is 2 tsp. before each meal or diluted with water and drank during the meal (you'd have to love vinegar to drink it during your meal - o-o-o-o-o no, not me). Anyway, I am giving it a try and will keep you all posted on how this works.
630344 tn?1280108583 we have an autoimmune condition sk react to things like proteins in food. if you cut out wheat and dairy it might help. trial it for 2 weeks or 3. this means you CAN eat potato, corn, rice, eggs, oats. coconut milk.. just to name a few. i've also discovered filtered water in the last couple years.
784382 tn?1376934640 so on tuesday i will be going in for gallbladder surgery. i wasnt really nervous when i found out because im ready to feel better. but all the stories online about this surgery are HORROR stories. FREAKS ME OUT! making me so so young why is all this crap happening to me??....hopefully this gallbladder is connected to the dizziness i been feeling, that would be nice i been praying, but think i could use just a few more if at all possible. im sure i will be a wreck tomorrow.....
Avatar f tn Oregano has natural antibacterial and antiviral compounds. I put about a half a teaspoon in my salt water nasal spray and use it several times a day. I also put a pinch under my tongue to get those same compounds into my system. I read you have to stay focused on this process until you are completely cured. I am encouraged.
Avatar n tn I wake every morning with horrible pain in lower back (kidney area) that radiates to the front of stomach (rib area). I have had battery of tests and found nothing. I am only able to sleep 5-6 hours before pain wakes me, also unable to take a deep breath until I get out of bed (very painful just to roll over), once I stand and get out of bed the pain almost immediately starts to ease. After about 20 minutes of walking around and after first morning void, pain disappears for remainder of day.
Avatar n tn I have muscle spasm in or around the ribs on both sides (in the front under the breast and sometimes in the back at the same horizontal position), it feels like a ball rolling, in that it switches sides. It occurs even at night during sleep, painful enough to wake me. I only know that when I relax and stretch (the side where the knot is) using several positions I have to wait till it goes away, in many cases to have it return in other places described above.
Avatar n tn I don't have allergies of any kind and I'm in excellent health and I can learn to live with the smell of fresh baked bread in my nostrils.. I mean it could be owrse.. still I think I should get someone to check this out especially as I read about Phantom smells being a possible side efect of brain tumors...
Avatar n tn I am 33 years old, recently started walking and doing Pilates about a week and a half ago. This warming sensation in my outer left calf, and is occasionally in my left arm started, 3 days ago, so that makes me believe the injury theory. I was positive last night that I had a blood clot and it would kill me(did I mention I have had major anxiety issues?), I didnt sleep well. I called my mom this morning who is a nurse, and she suggested a pinched nerve.
Avatar f tn How closely spaced (in distance) are the injections - there are different approaches, not sure which is better, ours are half inch. 7. How many treatments will it take to see results - if they say guaranteed results in one treatment, run for the hills. Evidence seems to show somewhere between 5 and 10% will not respond to the treatment.
Avatar n tn Ok, I have NEVER posted a question before and I saw that the day was going a bit slow soooo, what I would like for this thread is for EVERYBODY to post where they are TODAY in their treatment or post-treatment recovery. What I mean is how many weeks do you have under your belt? If ya wanna post about other stuff, that's fine too. This is an "about you" thread. Have a great day and kick some booty!
Avatar n tn same here for months now started with flu like them to lungs, thought I was better after 12 weeks of flu, then the smells in my nose, sinus, lungs?..HORRID and some are very distinct and also some are multiple, some are triggered by certain smells, sometime I smell smoke, exhaust, rancid, just hard to explain, it drives me crazy! ]And my nose will burn also my lips. nothing really smells like it should and most things smell horrible, taste too....
Avatar f tn I tried to remove one with tweezers, and it was very tacky (as in sticky) and clearly goes deep under the skin. Part of it broke off but I could still see that the pore was plugged and a day or two later top of the plug was sticking out again. i can't find ANYTHING online that looks like it.
Avatar n tn Most but not all patients will describe a feeling of tension or stiffness in the cranial muscles, especially in the forehead.
5449245 tn?1368139059 My doctor has told me to take 2 doses of Zyrtec per day to see if it will help the swelling, but Zyrtec makes me drowsy and I do not take it because I drive pretty much everyday and don't want to get too drowsy while I'm operating a vehicle! I have hypothyroidism & type 2 diabetes, and I think that may be part of the reason why my eyes have been so swollen. I have allergies as well, but they are mild.
Avatar f tn I started taking it 8oz a day for the first 3 months, then cut to 4oz daily until it was cured, sometimes I took a few more ounces if I ate something that upset me, but in a matter of alittle over a year and half it was cured, I still take 1oz of aloe vera 100% juice a day for preventive maint. or if I have an upset stomach it helps. I feel it cured me slowly but naturally and from the inside. I hope it helps.
Avatar n tn This is why when you breath it hurts.I let myself go to long and my nearve in my left arm was cut almost into.I was less than a cenameter from being peralized from the neck down.I got a MRI and went to a great sergon had sergery and am doing gteat.You more than likely have a blown disk or slight disk hurniation ,disk bulg.This pinches the nerves causing great pain.I am a 34 year old male Thats been there.
Avatar n tn I have pressure in my head and a tightness in my neck every day (usually for the later half of the day). I also feel dizzy from time to time. I'm going in for an MRI soon but lots of people have told me that it sounds like anxiety. So I'm doing what I can to calm myself down to see if it goes away. But I haven't been able to make it stop. The only thing that makes it go away for a little while is a good nights sleep.
