Can I Take Zyrtec And Zantac Together
My son is 17mths, 40lbs & healthy he takes zyrtec qd with Zantac (ranitidine) bid & Pulmicort 0.5mg 1qd. What OTC can I get for cough/congestion for him?
Cold meds in child: Over the counter cough and cold preparations are no longer FDA approved or recommended for children under the age of 2. Since your child is asthmatic, the best way to treat his cough is with his asthma and allergy medication regimen (including albuterol) and following up with his pediatrician if symptoms persist or worsen. ...Read more
Whenever I get hot I start to itch, I had hives prior but they're gone I'm currently on zantac (ranitidine) and Zyrtec (Costco brand). It doesn't seem to work.
Cholinergic?: There is a condition known as cholinergic urticaria (small bumps) which occurs during the cooling down period after a rise in core body temperature (hot shower, exercise, stress etc). If this fits your pattern, then try taking the antihistamine up to every 8 hrs to see if this may work. ...Read more
I feel like I am currently having palipations. Nerves probably don't help it either. I am taking Zantac (ranitidine) zyrtec and steroid I think it's Zantac (ranitidine) idk? ?
Medication reactions: If the side-effect you suspect is not serious or causing symptoms such as dizziness, , nausea, shortness of breath or chest pains, it might be important to reliably determine which medication is the problem. A day on followed by a day off the medication (repeat with all suspected meds) should help you decide. See your doctor for evaluation of palpitations if they persist. ...Read more

I'm taking 10 mg Zyrtec (cetirizine) and 150 ranitidine can I take NyQuil as well? I have an awful sinus infection and it's causing trouble sleeping
Itchy spots on neck, upper arms, low back seems to help when I use my hairdryer.. taking Zantac (ranitidine) 150mg and zyrtex.. not helping.
See doctor: Since cooling is usually more soothing for itching, your response to heat is of interest. If taking Zyrtec (cetirizine) up to 4x daily does not help, then you may have something other than the usual hives. Consult an allergist or dermatologist if the problem persists or worsens. ...Read more

Can you take prilosec and nexium (esomeprazole) together? Can I take zantac at night after taking prilosec in the afternoon?
Drug interactions: Prilosec is a brand of generic omeprazole. Nexium is a brand of generic esomeprazole, which is left mirror image of omeprazole. Therefore, you only take one, not both proton pump inhibitors (PPI). Zantac is brand of generic ranitidine, which is an H2 blocker, which isn't as powerful as PPI but can be used in conjunction w/PPI. Try lifestyle modifications to avoid acid reflux: http://goo.

Yes, but chk it out: You can use both medications if you need them to control your significant gerd/reflux trouble, but I would advise checking it out with your doc to see why you are having such bad reflux.

Although uncommon the zantac can raise librax (clinidium and chlordiazepoxide) level. This would cause dry mouth, constipation, blurry vision. ...Read more
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
Yes: Benadryl (diphenhydramine) is time tested old antihistamine and works well. It can cause drowsiness so use it before going to bed. Zyrtec causes less or no drowsiness and can be taken in the morning or day time. Most antihistamines quit working after a while. In that case consider allergy evaluation to treat the cause of the problem. ...Read more
Yes, if...: If a person was able to take zyrtec and tamiflu (oseltamivir) separately in the past, without any problems related to the medications, then she should be able to take them at the same time, together. If any concerns arise, she can ask the doctor who prescribed the tamiflu (oseltamivir). ...Read more
Not a great idea: There is likely no added benefit of taking these two medications together. The real question is what kind of symptoms are you attempting to treat. There are other medication that can treat nasal symptoms that are better than antihistamines with decongestant including intranasal steroid sprays. See an Allergist if you would like more guidance on what combination of meds can improve your symptoms. ...Read more
Yes, but why?: Zyrtec (cetirizine) and Claritin (loratadine) are both new generation antihistamines. While it is fine to take both antihistamines, it should not be necessary. Most patients find relief with one or the other. If symptoms are not controlled and a person feels the need to take both, consider seeing an allergist for an evaluation and different medication regimen. ...Read more

Not recommended.: Claritin (loratadine) and zyrtec have similar action and taking them together will result in duplication and additives side effects (headache, drowsiness, dry mouth, fatigue).It is best to avoid taking both medications together except under the care of a physician. If neither Claritin (loratadine) d nor zyrtec d is helpful, then see your physician for evaluation and care. ...Read more
