Allegra 180 mg: Zyrtec may cause drowsiness. Allegra does not cross into the brain and should not cause drowsiness. The "d" component is a decongestant and may cause insomnia, decreased appetite, high blood pressure and in men - urinary difficulties due to prostate issues so I do not prefer the Allegra-D products.

Not advisable : I would not take both at the same time because these medications do the same thing and can have additive effects if used together. They are both antihistamines for the treatment of allergies. If one of these alone is not helping, sometimes switching to the other one is helpful. If none of these remedies work, then consultation with your doctor or allergist would be appropriate. ...Read more
