Can allergy medicine (i.E. Zyrtec) become ineffective after a while?

Can allergy medicine (i.E. Zyrtec) become ineffective after a while?

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

Why does medicine (e.g. tylenol (acetaminophen) pm) make some people tired when they take it?

Why does medicine (e.g. tylenol (acetaminophen) pm) make some people tired when they take it?
