Pseudoephe: Insomnia is a common side effect from pseudoephedrine and I have not recommended it use for at least a decade.

Zyrtec, claritin, (loratadine) allegra, clarinex. Other allergy pill options? Year-round, persistant allergies. Wet in ears, post-nasal drip (sore throat).

I have allergies and asthma. Will reactine help with asthma. I take 10mg but sometimes I think it will help more so I take 20mg. Is it useful?
Maybe for allergies: Cetirizine (the generic name) is an antihistamine, and these meds are very good and controlling symptoms like sneezing, itchy eyes, or an itchy nose. In most cases, 10 mg will be enough to help these symptoms, but in certain cases your doctor may recommend higher doses. Antihistamines do not treat the inflammation that causes asthma. Talk with your doctor about your symptoms and medication regimen. ...Read more

Probably.: Shouldn't be a problem as long as its regular Zyrtec (DO NOT attempt with Zyrtec-D) and you don't have any history of severe reactions with antihistamine. Also, another strategy might be to try an intranasal steroid (Flonase, Nasonex, (mometasone) etc) with a single Zyrtec to see if that helps. Good luck! ...Read more
