Taking Two Zyrtec
Low WBC and taking Zyrtec for 2 wks now for allergies, I have been told to stop Zyrtec at least 1week before re-check wbc, can someone explain why?
11 month old - cough at night and chest congestion since 2 wks. Taking zyrtec n terbutaline sulphate orally. Is Nebulisation needed?
Would make an appoin: Virus are very common this time a year. Prolonged viruses or colds sometimes can turn into something more serious. With symptoms for two weeks, I would recommend that your child be seen in the office. Nighttime coughing could be due to post nasal drip or sinusitis (esp if there is fever). Nebulized treatments and/ or antibiotics may be needed esp if there is a history of reactive airway disease. ...Read more
Not likely: Zyrtec (cetirizine) is a new generation with a good safety profile. While the usual dose of zyrtec is 10 mg once a day for allergies, there is scientific evidence that higher doses even up to 4x the usual dose is helpful for severe hives. So, two doses of zyrtec is unlikely to cause significant side effects except perhaps a little drowsy. ...Read more
Sedation: That dose of zyrtec is going to be very sedating. This defeats the purpose of taking zyrtec instead of benadryl. That level of sedation will make you a drowsy --> dangerous driver. Have you tried Loratadine or allegra? Do you use Flonase or something like it? Do you regularly flush your nose with a saline/ baking soda solution? ...Read more
What can I do if my allergies are really working on me, can I take two zyrtec when one doesn't work?
What if you have hives/urticaria, and you tried every medication like zyrtec, zentec, and a two meds I had to pay for, but I'm still breaking out?
Xolair now approved: Xolair (omalizumab) is now approved for chronic hives. It has been used for many years for allergic asthma. While it is expensive, there are programs to help cover the cost. This monthyly injection can remarkably control hives. See a board certified allergist and ask about Xolair for hives. This is the first FDA approved treatment since antihistamines. ...Read more
I usually take 2 xyzal/day but can't get it refilled anymore. Also, my allergies have started breaking through on it. Should I take two zyrtec?
Under an allergist supervision I take two zyrtecs in the morning with a ranitadine. At nite I take singular and ranitadine and cyproheptadine. Can I take two zyrtecs at night instead of the ranitadine and cyproheptadine?
Zyrtec dose: Yes, you can take more zyrtec total per day if you tolerate it well. When patients have severe urticaria, we often have them take even more than 4 zyrtec tablets daily. The initial studies with zyrtec used doses of 10-40 mg, or up to 4 tablets at a time. You can still take the ranitidine and montelukast at night also, if they help you. They do not affect the dose of antihistamine. ...Read more
