zyrtec (cetirizine) can be taken safely more than the package states . It can cause some drowsiness in about 13% of people; that's why the low dose of ten mg is recommended . The simplest answer to your problem is to simply take another zyrtec (cetirizine) at night, if your morning dose doesn't last all day .
