Zyrtec side effects long term

Common Questions and Answers about Zyrtec side effects long term


Avatar m tn The amounts you mention greatly exceed the recommended dose of one tab twice a day and raises the possibility of acute side effects. I know of no studies of long term side effects of using such high doses of Zyrtec alone but if you are taking Zyrtec-D that could pose significant risks from the pseudoephedrine. The best advice I can provide is that you discuss your question with your physician and raise with him/her the possibility of other medication options.
Avatar n tn I'm 19 and have been taking these medications since I was 17. Will there be long term side effects when I'm older? I would go to the company websites but I thought I would get a more honest answer here. Sometimes I have the urge to clench my calf muscle and bend my feet..it's like i have to do it. Could this be side effects of my medication?
Avatar m tn Have you discussed long-term use of Nasonex or a similar mometasone steroid spray? They tend to work, are often used on an on-going basis, prescribed for infections and allergies, and provide effective relief. As for your question about Zyrtec - talk to your pharmacist (and your doctor - a couple opinions do not hurt) about the dosage you are taking and what the long-term side effects are.
Avatar f tn His symptomes were severe but he is slowly getting better. What are the long term effects of this disease on a young child?
Avatar f tn These include hot or cold weather with low humidity levels, long-term use of air conditioning or central heating, and washing or bathing too much.Apply hypoallergenic moisturizer to the body part where you itch.application of calamine lotion is also helpful.It soothes the skin. Other conditions cause itchy skin as well.
Avatar n tn It works very well (I feel about 90% better) and I have no side effects. It says it is effective against hives as well. Also I saw these advertisements: www.hivotin.com and www.hivotab.com I really hope your problems will improve. Good luck.
Avatar n tn Since many of us are finished with therapy, or close to it, it would be nice to compare short and long term after-effects as we proceed along the path to recovery. It sounds like most of us are experiencing at least some noticable symptoms after tx. My biggest problems are skeletal: joint pain in neck, back, hips, and recently in small joints: fingers, elbows, ankles, etc. I also have shoulder pain and numbness, similar to peripheral neuropathy.
Avatar f tn Hi Here's a link from our drug database (located in the health topics above) which gives indications of usage, side effects, etc. of Zyrtec. http://www.medhelp.org/drugs/Zyrtec/show/2892 Might your friend be thinking of steriods which, when used long term, can cause issues with growth in children? Just a thought.
Avatar m tn hello, other than feeling drowsy but are there any long term bad effects on taking antihistimes?ive been taking them constantly for spring allergies but even when its not spring i still feel i need to take them..
10519675 tn?1410751599 But I'm wondering how long is it safe to take both meds 2 times a day? Any bad long term side effects?
Avatar f tn Zyrtec is a category B drug which means that the studies in animals is well documented but the studies in humans is not well documented and long term effects are not known.You should talk to your doctor if you are having apprehensions about this medicine.You can also apply calamine lotion on the itchy rashes.Regarding the fetal heart beat,it usually is detected by Doppler at 6-8weeks.So you should get a repeat examination done as your doctor has suggested. Hope it helps.
Avatar n tn as sweet as sugar, but no surge in insulin; as sweet as sugar, but no side effects or long-term health damage has been reported. Whereas few very rare side effects has been reported like dizziness and numbness, diarrhea, swelling, muscle aches, headaches, intestinal cramping, bladder issues, and stomach pain in those who are allergic or sensitive to the sucralose molecule. Whereas your case seems to be chronic rhinitis or allergic rhinitis wherein excessive mucus is produced by the sinuses.
Avatar f tn Do people do this to tolerate until things get better or they adjust better? My doctor was not thrilled my being on Zyrtec or Benadryl for long term. I get tested October 25 if all goes well with the lower dose of Methimazole. Thank you very much in advance for your response.
Avatar m tn I always try to find alternatives to long term steroid use due to the potential side effects. Good luck.
Avatar f tn If it were my children, I would look at each of these drugs, and I would google side effects from long term use as well as withdrawall and I would try a more gentle natural way. Some docs work with diets instead of meds when possible. I hope you can figure things out.
Avatar f tn Could this be a result of a medicine I am taking? Coinsidentally, 2 years ago I started taking ADHD medicine which has side effects of dry mouth (leading to bad breath?). I guess I am wondering what steps I can take to get rid of the white coating and bad breath? I do not have poor hygiene-again I brush at least 2 times a day,use tongue scrape, mouthwash, and obsessively chew gum/mints. But after brushing my teeth the white coating/breath issue is not solved.
Avatar m tn Hi, Normally hot flashes and sweating in men are associated with low T level, but since you are on T replacement, you should not have had them. Did you look at the possible side effects of your blood pressure / cholesterol medications for these symptoms?, if not please look at that.
Avatar n tn The respiratory risk is both immediate -- poor control of asthma and long-term -- the progressive loss of normal lung function. Seriously consider smoking cessation. You may want to look at our Quit Smoking Topic Center at http://www.nationaljewish.org/topic/smoking_cessation.html for ways to help you quit smoking. Also check with your doctor for other quit smoking resources in your area.
Avatar n tn You can look up the side effects of just about any medication you can think of. I would look up the possible side effects of xyzol tablets. Write down the side effects so you have them when you go for your doctor's appointment. Good luck to you.
Avatar f tn I have a cat on .25 ml drops every other day. It will most likely be long term. Should I be concerned....I like my vet, but am very leary about drugs. He has a crippled front leg and has walked forward for his entire life....he is 13. He has developed gingivitis and cannot have any work on his teeth or any type of procedure requiring anesthetic. His internal organs have all come forward and are pushing on his lungs and heart.
Avatar f tn With this drug there can few side effects like excitation, irritability, nervousness, paradoxical excitement, restlessness etc. You can go for the long term therapy; side effects will not be matter of concern except for mild sedation and sometimes headache. I suggest you to consult a dermatologist for more info and prescription. Take care and regards.
Avatar f tn And it is safe, not a cause of significant liver disease, and not associated with other side effects, deemed serious. To the best of our current knowledge, the long term use of a nasal steroid, as directed, does not pose a problem. However, if your symptoms diminish during certain seasons, you may not and should not take the drug during those times. Singulair and inhaled steroids are complementary in the treatment of asthma.
Avatar n tn Anti-histaminic and/or Leukotriene Receptor Antagonist (may be added if not controlled by antihistamines) will help to relieve the symptoms. You can go for the long term therapy; side effects will not be matter of concern except for mild sedation and sometimes headache. I suggest you to consult a dermatologist for more info. Take care and regards.
Avatar f tn My doctor told me I should use Pulmicort indefinitely. When I've asked if there are any side effects or risks of using it long-term, he said no and was rather dismissive of my questions. I can't afford to pay for another office visit when I know he will just insist that I keep using the full amount. However, I'm wondering if I should not be using fully concentrated Pulmicort at such a high dosage.
Avatar f tn okay went back and did some hunting. this is a quote: "there are many side effects with using pain meds for cats however based on all avail info at this time the ones with the fewest side effects and safest for cats are the following..... Buprenorphine(buprenex) Butorphanol(torbutrol, torbugesic) Tramadol(Ultram) Fentanyl(duragesic) probably the worst one I've read about is metacam, this one can cause blindness among other problems...beware, many Vets still use it!!

1684282 tn?1505701570 Some patients in intractable, chronic or cancer pain need to be on long term opiates under close supervision of a physician. However, pharmaceutical companies have been successful in persuading the FDA in not scheduling tramadol, also known by its brand name Ultram, as a non-controlled substance. Its mode of action is often described as "unknown", even though it is already well know that it acts on μu receptors just like any other opiate drug.
1653132 tn?1301855906 And with the high dose treatment, the long term side effects could lead to some serious health consequences. Not to be taken lightly, specially when you feel this way and you're more vulnerable. Please go to the "ask a patient" website to read some of the comments. My suggestion is to deal with your urticaria from a different perspective. You have done the medical circuit, tried a lot of different drugs. However,Urticarias in general are Energy based conditions.
