How much dosage of zyrtec can I have in a day? I'm 78 years old. I'm having liquid food Ensure, for over a month, Could this result in itching allergy

How much dosage of zyrtec can I have in a day? I'm 78 years old. I'm having liquid food Ensure, for over a month, Could this result in itching allergy

Possible: Ensure has ingredients (with dairy one of them) which can be allergenic. On the other hand, at your age, dry skin may be a more likely issue. Try unscented soap, apply moisturizer on your skin <3 mins after bathing and again in 12 hrs +/- bathing. Zyrtec would not help dry skin but you can take it up to 4 x daily if needed. For food allergy, avoidance is a must. ...Read more

Patients with m deficiency have low k levels that cannot be corrected until the m is normal. You are not on a diuretic that causes both k and m loss in the urine.
