Zyrtec twice a day

Common Questions and Answers about Zyrtec twice a day


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 had them about 7 years ago, they lasted about a year. I'm taking Zyrtec (once a day), Zantac (2 / day), Doxepin (150 mg @ bedtime), and Benadryl as needed. I had been on prednisone on and off since July but my doctor has taken me off of it (for obvious reasons). Unfortunately nothing I've taken other than prednisone has worked. My hives are particularly associated with pressure (underwear) - Since September i have worn a tank top under my clothes due to hives associated with wearing a bra.
Avatar n tn We do not really have insurance so he only sees a Dr at a free clinic here and so cannot see an allergist right now, and they do not cover allegra which is still quite expensice (even generic) He's started trying the Zyrtec more and it is working well for him (I think a little better then his allegra as long as he takes psuedoephidrine as well) however it's NOT lasting 24 hrs for him, and is really only lasting about 12 hrs..
Avatar m tn 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.
850029 tn?1238861420 Has anyone taken Zyrtec twice a day? I've been taking it once a day but can feel it wearing off and get all stuffy towards the evening. I've thought about taking it morning and night so that it works the whole day (and I can hopefully manage my allergies better). I'm worried that two will make me really tired. It took me a while to get used to the Zyrtec and not be sleepy all day. Has anyone tried it? If it does make me tired, will it go away after a while?
Avatar n tn He has been taking Zyrtec (Cetirizine) 5ml twice a day (5ml in the morning and 5ml in the Evening) but still it does not help. Also he takes 10ml of Atarax Syrup at night before going to bed, His itching is so severe and it really bothers him all night; he goes to bed around 4 or 5 in the morning sometimes at 6:00 AM and of course misses school. I just need a Really Good Doctor who can diagnose him correctly. Can I try Benadryl.
Avatar n tn I take a generic Zyrtec every night and lately (the past week), I've had to take a Mucinex D once or twice a day because I had a cold for a few days. The cold is gone, but last night at 3:30, after lying awake for a half hour, I took another one. My symptoms are typically this: My nose starts tingling, as if I have to sneeze, but it just remains tingling for about fifteen minutes.
Avatar n tn One day I was at my desk (one of 3 in a front lobby) and I kept yawning and a customer in line for another desk kept making comments on me being tired. He wouldn't stop, every time I yawned and finally I just left my desk until I knew he was gone! Leave me alone people! ;p I'm trying to breathe! =) Good luck!
Avatar f tn It's really kind of gross and makes me breath smell bad - it's been going on a month with this, now. I've been taking Zyrtec once a day and Naproxen once a day to help with throat inflammation. I've been taking olive leaf extract in capsule form twice a day, I heard it helps the immune system. Does anyone have any tips to get my immune system back on track?
Avatar f tn continue if it helps Emetrol, antacids, Tums, Rolaids, ginger/ginger tea, hard candy Unisom 25mg, twice a day Zyrtec 10mg, once a day These were approved by my dr for nausea and vomiting.

Avatar m tn I am using the same thing and I am using one respule per bottle and rinsing twice a day. I'm also on singulair, zyrtec, patanase, and a steroid nose inhaler. I wonder if I used more of the pulmicort if I could cut down on some of the other meds?? Is anyone else taking all of these meds??
Avatar f tn Hi, I am a 29 year old female - I have had UTIs since I was about 15yrs old continuously, once or twice a month. The urologist put me on macrobid as a prevenitive medicine to take before intercourse a few years ago. Following those instructions lessened my UTIs to no more than 4 times per year of getting UTIs (much more bearable). Then on Feb. 2nd 2010, I had what I will call an "episode".
Avatar f tn I have been taking Symbicort since January (2 pumps, twice a day), as prescribed and I have not run into any trouble. I have caught common colds that cleared up and went away (not the case in previous years). Advair did not work well for me. I have viral asthma, so I would normally end up with breathing difficulties (because of fluid, etc. in my lungs). I feel great and have had no side effects. I am very active.
Avatar f tn I used to get hives very frequently, about twice to four times a year, but I haven't had them in around two years. Six days ago, I woke up with the red, raised bumps on my hands. I thought it was nothing, because all the cases I've had in the past had gone away within 24hrs. This time, it was different. Today is the evening of the sixth day and the hives have not gotten better, or gone down.
501096 tn?1320878532 I have got to say that it cured my problem completely. I put it on twice a day for a few days just because I thought I would need it. Especially before bed where I was sleeping with my legs out from under the covers since the contact with the sheets increased the itch. I have not had an itch since I first tried it. I havent put it on for 2 days now. I may wait to see how long I go before it returns but at least I know how to fix it now.
5025679 tn?1363545101 my mouth feels sticky and like this film all on the roof i can't explain. it's horrible. i drink water constantly. i am currently taking prilosec twice a day because i have a small hernia by my belly button, not sure if that is the culprit? i do NOT get a heart burn feeling at all, but I do belch often after i eat and i eat small amounts throughout the day.
Avatar f tn The dermatologist currently said Zyrtec twice a day, Zantac once a day, and Triamcinolone cream twice a day. I only started the cream today but so far it hasn't alleviated the itching, and he said it should help within a few days. If it doesn't, he'll start me on a steroid regiment which would have some pretty negative side effects, so I'd like to avoid it if possible. He said another possibility would be that the original rash was eczema that spread after the biopsy, but I have no idea.
Avatar dr m tn Every time you get a cold, notice how it usually starts in the throat with a tickle, a scratch, or a slight cough. It then progresses into chest congestion or travels up into the ears and the sinuses. You’ll have a low grade fever, mild chills, and a runny nose. Even if you start out with a runny nose, eventually, you’ll have throat symptoms later on. Sounds like a classic cold, right?
Avatar m tn Do this pranayam for 30 minutes, twice a day to help with the asthma. The extra oxygen going into the lungs will definitely help. Let me know when you start to feel the benefit, then I will post something for the gas problem. Build up your timing gradually.If you feel tired or dizzy, stop and resume after one minute.
1139187 tn?1355710247 So to relieve the allergies, I took a Zyrtec that night... the pain started back! After that one dose I immediately quit the Zyrtec again and put up with the returning allergies for about another week. I tried Benedryl, but it made me tired. I started taking Allegra (generic) about a week ago and my back pain is not only worse, but my joint and nerve pain are horrible! Most of my symptoms seem to it seems to because of or aggravated by the antihistamines.
Avatar f tn Try taking home remidies like plain water steam, twice a day, it gives awesome results for cold, cough and watery eyes. This is free from any side effects. I do this all the time.
1450484 tn?1284907731 I am currenty on 40mg of prednisone a day, Dulera (200/5), Qvar (80mcg), Theophylline CR (just starting it again), singulair, albuterol PRN (2-3x a day), mucinex, zyrtec, rhinocorft, and achiphex. I also have gastroparesis and a possible mitochondrial disorder (confirmed mutation in mtDNA but not a typical locus need a muscle biopsy to check the electron transport chain) that has affected my muscles and nervous system.
1574314 tn?1296204882 My meds list- two puffs Advair 230/21 twice a day, two sprays/nostril Patanase twice a day, pulmacort sinus rinse once a day (I have to mix that in my sinus rinse bottle), guaifenesen-PE 4 - 6 times a day, 3 zyrtec a day, Singulair, Dexilant, ranitidine, 100,000 iu vitamin D3 a week, weekly allergy shots, and monthly Xolair shots.
Avatar m tn As you mentioned it could be an allergic reaction. Zyrtec can be taken every 12 hrs once, which is twice a day. If the present anti histamines are not very effective you can consult your doctor for long acting ones. Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
Avatar n tn They have come up with no known allergy. So I was put on Zyrtec twice a day...recommended dosage typically once a day. I noticed that my right leg (the one that used to flail) had those feelings you get before you seizure (myoclonus). I didn't actually flail. Has anyone heard of any correlation between Clonzapam and Zyrtec or other histamines in relation to myoclonus? Thank you.
