Zyrtec (cetirizine) and Nyquil: It depends on what Nyquil you have as there is one on the market with an antihistamine in it, which is what Zyrtec (cetirizine) is. You would not want to take two antihistamines in one day without talking to your physician or the pharmacist.

Frank770: Yes you can provided you give the Nyquil 12 hours later and just double check the ingredients in Nyqil.

Yes you can: but better hold the next dose of zyrtec (cetirizine) while on the nyquil until you are done with the cold episode,
