Are There Any Long Term Effects To Taking Zyrtec Everyday
Zyrtec (cetirizine) effects: Antihistamines in general are some of the safest medications to use long-term. That said, one should never use a medication longer than necessary, and it is wise to switch products periodically no matter what the medication class, in case you are having side effects but don't realize it.

However, some are willing to take a small and smart risk for a better quality of life. Discuss nasal antihistamines & other non-systemic treatments with your doctor.
