Common Questions and Answers about Zyrtec d pseudoephedrine


Avatar m tn Alright thanks,and no i take plain zyrtec,not zyrtec d,it doesnt contain pseudoephedrine....i called up my psychiatrist,he said its nothing to worry about,its common with all the medicines im taking,im meeting my physician later this week,and he can then recommend a cardiologist for me....
Avatar f tn I would call your doctor. I know plain Zyrtec is fine to take, but I'm not clear on Zyrtec-D. I believe the only difference is that it has Pseudoephedrine in it, but I'm not 100% and your doctor would be the safest to ask. You should just be able to call and ask and find out over the phone.
Avatar n tn The "D" in Claritin-D or Zyrtec-D is pseudoephedrine, which is an ingredient used to make methamphetamine (speed). Manufacturers of street meth were sending hordes of kids into drugstores to buy up these necessary ingredients for their final product. That's why these medications are now locked up behind the pharmacy counter and require a photo ID to purchase them.
Dog by the time I got to read your reply I had already purchased a product suggested by live chat pharmacist Ronda R...she said Allegra D or Claritin D(generic) and local Walgreens sold my wife Wal-itin D........contacted my Dr. and he also stated the same as you 'I would suggest not taking pseudoephedrine with metoprolol. It could elevate her heart rate. Loratadine by itself would be fine.
Avatar m tn Somedays a claritin takes care of it, sometimes a Zyrtec .. sometimes I need the added D (pseudoephedrine). Also, my doc has giving me Singulaire and Xyzal which can be helpful. Be careful and don't overload. Do some research online (pollen.com) and find out what drug works for what allergy. Cottonwood requires Singulaire, but food allergies are taking care of with Zyrtec for me. 3. If you are having neck pain, you might consider a chiropractor.
746512 tn?1388807580 I have tried reactive, no change and claritin-D let me breathe really well for 2 days, then severe side effects (heart racing, dizzy spells and severe anixety). However all the allergy medications I know about (aerius, clartin, reactive, allegra, zrytec) all use pseudoephedrine in their decongesant formulas. I was wondering if anyone knows of another medicine that works similarly to pseudoephedrine but (hopefully) wouldn't cause me the horrible side effects.
Avatar f tn suidfed is okay as well.
Avatar n tn Im 34 weeks and the doctor finally prescribed me some claritin d, i hope im not consuming too many pills for my unborn
Avatar f tn My doctor said I could still take claratin, but not the D kind. The pseudoephedrine is not good for baby.
Avatar m tn Is it safe to take both Allegra-D and Zyrtec. In short, I suffer from allergies. I find that I feel best when I take a single pill of Allegra-D in the morning and a single pill of Zyrtec at night. In part, I have been doing this because I haven't had to go to the doctor (or Canada) to get more Allegra D so I can take it twice a day. I was wondering what the possible side-effects, besides fatigue, are of the regimen I'm taking? I've felt much better since beginning it.
1646392 tn?1333251893 I have done sinus rinses, nose strips, sudafed, benedryl at night, vicks rub, and zyrtec. I can get about two hours of sleep at night before I wake up with my nose running and nose clogged. My husband has started sleeping the guest room because I keep him up at night. I tend to go through a roll of toilet paper blowing my nose in two to three nights. I stay awake for one to three hours at night trying to breath, blowing my nose, and trying to fall back asleep.
Avatar n tn I am 20 weeks pregnant and am getting a sinus infection, I know Zyrtec D works but i dont know if im allowed to take it! Will it harm baby if I take Zyrtec D???
Avatar n tn t know of any problem with taking Zyrtec-D with Plavix. You can also read your medication leaflets with the medications to check or check with your pharmacist. If you are being treated for high blood pressure or heart disease/vascular problem, I would NOT recommend taking the Zyrtec-D WITHOUT discussing this with your physician.
7165624 tn?1395647767 I was told by my doctor that you can take just about anything but to stay away from the d. Take Claritin but not Claritin D, etc... Look for that d word on any sinus or allergy meds.
Avatar m tn My 1 year old, Olde English Bulldog weights around 60 lbs jumped on counter about 3 hours ago and ate 2 Mucinex-d from packaging. There was 3 pills left in package and 2 are missing, The third pill looked chewed on but was left on the ground packaging is all chewed up. Mucinex D active ingredients are 600 mg guaifenesin and 60 mg pseudoephedrine. Please help do i need to take to emergency vet or will he be ok? he has been acting ok and he has eaten his food and drink water since.
460830 tn?1347219306 Hello, Antihistamines are pretty benign. I take more than the daily recommended dose per doctor's orders every day. Unless you are taking Zyrtec-D, which it sounds like you know not to do, it won't be a problem. I would go ahead and take a plain Zyrtec. God bless.
1274661 tn?1301868321 Thanks, Selma. I do take the zyrtec at night, but I guess it is not enough. Last time I was at the doctor he told me to take claritin-D in the morning and zyrtec at night. I really didn't want to try the claritin-D because it is a decongestant and they make me feel crazy and just seem to drain everything into my chest. Maybe I can ask about taking regular claritin in the morning and zyrtec at night. May I ask what you are and were taking?
Avatar f tn I am a major allergy sufferer! Clarifying and Zyrtec are safe to take. However! Do not get the ones with the "D" added onto them (claritin d) because that is either not studied enough yet or not recommended. I take claritin as needed. "They" say it might be bad for allergies this spring with the late start. Exercise indoors. Take care and hopeb this is helpful. We are also allowed Benadryl but that you would need to call about. ...
Avatar n tn I have used patanol in the past but the eye Dr is now recommending patasol which is very expensive. I want to try Zyrtec d instead of Zyrtec which gives me some releif. Any other suggestions are appreciated.
Avatar f tn My 12 year old daughter was just diagnosed today with this. I read the other posts relating thyroid problems with autoimmune urticaria. Since I have hypothyroidism, I'm guessing that she should be tested for this at her regular doctor's office? Right now all I can afford is the double dose of Zyrtec, but with everything else she's allergic to (7 types of trees, 3 molds, ragweed, cat, feathers,dust mites & roaches of course) the allergy shots would be better for her, right?
Avatar m tn Hey everyone, About 2 years ago I was having problems with severe allergies. One night I woke up and the left side of my cheek was swollen. Then it spread to my lips. I went to the doctor and she put me on steroids and benadryl. We determined that it was an allergy to hookah. I took my dosage and quit hookah. 3 days after the steroids had ended I woke up in the middle of the night with the left side of my tongue swollen.
