Is it ok to take zyrtec (cetirizine) (antihistamine for allergies) and dayquil (cold/flu medicine) together?

Depends: If you are taking plain zyrtec (cetirizine) (antihistamine only) you can take dayquil, but you should not take nyquil which also contains an antihistamine. Zyrtec (cetirizine) d contains a decongestant and antihistamine so it should not be mixed with other meds such as dayquil. It is always important to read the ingredient labels of any over the counter medicines as many medicine contain the same or similar ingredients.
