Yes: Singular (montelukst) and Zyrtec (cetirizine) are safe to take at the same time. Since cetirizine is non-sedating you could have your child take this in the morning and leave the montelukst for bedtime if you'd like to spread them out. ...Read more

Which is better for nasal allergies: levocetirizine or cetirizine hcl?

I was prescribed Vistaril (hydroxyzine) to take as needed for anxiety. Can I also take Cetirizine HCl with it for my seasonal allergies?

I was prescribed Vistaril (hydroxyzine) to take as needed for anxiety. Can I also take Cetirizine HCl with it for my seasonal allergies?

Not best combo: Can make u drowsy. Likely got prescribed vistaril (hydroxyzine) as it also helps with allergies/itching. Bug there are too many other medications more effective than vistaril (hydroxyzine). I also suggest u see a clinical psychologist or License Clinical Social Worker for the anxiety. Look into Cognitive Behavioral Therapy=CBT. ...Read more

Is is possible that continuous consumption of cetrizine HCl (10-20mg), has now caused it to have no affect on my allergies? Thanks.

Is is possible that continuous consumption of cetrizine HCl (10-20mg), has now caused it to have no affect on my allergies?
Thanks.

I will have them switch to Allegra (fexofenadine) which has helped some of them. The other possibility is that your symptoms are not being caused by allergies, and you should be evalutlated by your doctor. ...Read more

Tiered feeling + less than 100f fever + thin liquid flowing from nose +no cough..Is cetrazine HCl 10mg + paracetamol 500mg ok?No doctor available now

Sounds like a cold: Cetirazine is for allergies and your symptoms sound more like a cold. Plenty of rest and decongestants may help, but mostly you just have to wait to get better. Paracetamol may help for aches, pain, and fver but not for the runny nose. ...Read more
