Generic for Zyrtec (cetirizine): The most common side effects of Cetirizine are sedation and dry mouth. Children typically tolerate the sedative effects better than adults but parents have reported changes in personality and mood amongst my patient population under the age of 7 years. Overall Cetirizine is a very effective once a day antihistamine in the class of 2nd generation antihistamines.
