Unnecessary: Some non-medical practitioners say that allergy can occur to virtually any substance in the environment. Allergists define allergy as an over-reaction of the immune system to very small amounts of foreign substances that enter the body. While large amounts of phosphate taken as a supplement could cause GI upset & diarrhea, in my opinion there is no such thing as true phosphate allergy. ...Read more

Yes: Yes, Zyrtec (cetirizine) can become ineffective after a while. Zyrtec (cetirizine) tends to block histamine responses; however, the immune system diversifies with time and sends additional signals to respond to allergy (develops an adaptive response with IgE antibodies, B cells, T cells, etc). Once this occurs, antihistamines only block a subset of the allergic immune response. ...Read more
